What: Join us Saturday October 5th to celebrate the end of an awesome season on a paddle trip downa different section on the Lower Watauga. We will be paddling from Little Wilbur dam to the ball field (Riverside Park) in Elizabethton.
We plan on having a downriver race and an attainment race as part of the river tripfor those who want to participate. The downriver race will be a mass start from the put in. Finish line will be the first old bridge pylon. Paddling spectators will leave first with group leader and stage at the finish line to cheer on the finishing racers. We can have separate classes if enoughinterest. The attainment race will be at the takeout at the end of the river trip from the ballpark up to the Bristol Hwy Bridge (M SGT Jefferson Donald ” Donnie” Davis Memorial Bridge) and back.
Don’t let the race hype keep you away. We are making options for river fun for many skill levels. The main focus is a laid back class 2 river trip with delicious BBQ afterwards. Going to have BBQ from Bob’s Dairyland at the take out.
Meeting at Little Wilbur boat ramp at 12:00 PM to drop boats and set shuttle. Be prepared this water is cold! Trying to get a solid number of participants and folks that are eating, so please let me know. Will be accepting donations to help cover food cost.
