June 8 -10, 2012

Our 4th Annual Raft and Ride event will be held at Eagle Ranch, nestled in the beautiful mountains of Copperhill, Tennessee.  It's our biggest weekend outdoors with activities for everyone!



The fun begins Friday!  You're welcome to arrive any time Friday or even early Saturday morning.  On Friday, there will be various options for day hiking and mountain biking.  We should return to the ranch by late afternoon.  Back at the ranch we can play volleyball, frisbee, kickball and field games. After dinner we'll play drinking games, hang out at the fire circle and make new friends. 

Saturday begins with a great Eagle Ranch breakfast.  You'll need it for our fun-filled day!  Saturday is RAFTING day and you can choose from the following:

  • Rafting the Ocoee - The world famous Ocoee river offers some of the best Class III & IV rafting in the U.S.  Eagle Ranch guides will take us safely down the river, soaking us while we have fun!  There will be options for rafting both the middle (mild) and upper (crazy) sections of the river this year!
  • Tubing or Kayaking the Hiwassee - The beautiful Hiwassee river flows gently through the Tennessee hills. Rentals available or Bring Your Own Boats!

Back at the ranch again, we'll play more games, throw horse shoes, or find nearby hiking and mountain biking trails; Eagle Ranch itself has over 120 acres to explore!  Dinner is followed by campfire songs and stories.  Bring your own to add to the mix!  Saturday night's party theme is Graffiti T-Shirt.  Bring a white T-Shirt and your markers!  We'll also light up the ridiculously high BON FIRE!!

This year we'll have live entertainment by Go Get 'em Sheriff featuring their back to basics Rock and Roll sound!

The next morning starts with another hearty Eagle Ranch breakfast.  Sunday is RIDING day and you can choose from the following: 

  • Horseback Riding - A ride through the scenic trails with views of the hills and valleys all around!
  • Mountain Bike Riding (bring your own bike).  We'll have beginner and intermediate level rides through the world class Tanasi and Chillowee systems!
  • Zip Line - Seven spectacular ziplines, over 6,000 feet of adrenaline pumping fun, on a two hour tour!

If that's not enough for you we'll have options for hiking, mountain biking, and road biking all weekend!
