Labor Day Whitewater Weekend

Yes, we are going to celebrate Labor Day paddling the $30,000,000.00 whitewater course in Columbus, GA. The course is absolutely fantastic and a ball of fun for beginners or experienced paddlers.

Some will be going to Columbus on Friday morning and staying until Sunday.

For more details contact the event organizer at[masked] or e-mail to Richard@georgiakayaker.

If you aren't going you really don't need to waste your time posting a NO to this RSVP, we're smart enough to figure it out but if you register YES and don't show up... you won't be going on any future trips posted by this trip leader .

    Will you be checking any messages on this site through the weekend?
    My Monday river trip to Hiwassee got cancelled and I am looking for another river or group for Monday. If I try to head to Columbus, I'd need to know when and where to meet up.

    Hi
    Richard,
    I called and then sent a text. i did not buy a boat in Columbus That beginner status if far beyond mine. One look at that river and I decided it was best to enjoy the view and take some lessons.
    I apologize for my inflated beginner status but you really are pro,s and I would be under water

      Damn Ruthie, I spent two days getting the crap beat out of me, drinking river water, and swimming my ass off with some great friends and loved it.

      If you don't swim then you haven't paddled anything worthwhile.

      September 2, 2013

  • Anne B.

    Ok, so I only attacked the river ONCE, but I'm proud to say I did it. Of course Richard was with me the entire way..LITERALLY swimming behind my boat...what team player!! LOL Thanks for another great weekend Richard, Linda, Steve and Mark!!

      Once is never enough but great way to break your new kayak in. Can't say I know anyone who started out the wild way you have including me. Go girl!

  • Richard G.

    I've done my share of paddling but this river wore Steve and I out on Friday. Saturday was a blast with Linda and Annie but even at low flow it's wild in a rec kayak. My hats off to Columbus. Great 2 days.

    Hey guys, I may not make it tomorrow, I have had a head cold all week and I thought it would be gone by now, but it is taking its sweet time. I will see how I feel in the morning, but for now it is not looking good.

  • Meg A.

    $30 million?? This could be the most expensive river in the U.S.

    August 30, 2013

    • Linda W.

      That's why we try to paddle it so often. It's like those new expensive shoes - every time you use them the cost per event goes down.....

      We will be meeting at the Days Inn at 9:30 Saturday morning or at the 12th Street put-in shortly after that. We'll play there a short time and then run the course after a quick lunch.

      August 29, 2013

    • Steve H.

      Damn, there are so many nice lunch places there, that deciding where is gonna be harder than the rapids. lol
