From time to time Ga Power does water releases into Tallulah Gorge, turning it into one of the best white water play spots in the country. They are planning releases the first 3 weekends of November. Our friends at Atlanta White Water basically run the show on the weekend of November 12-13th.
During the releases the gorge is closed to everyone except paddlers and VOLUNTEERS! That's right, if you volunteer to help, you have access to the gorge. I have never been there during a release but have seen pictures and I can't wait to get there.
Even if you do not paddle white water this will be a treat for you.
I was told by the organizers that Atlanta Area Paddlers, my other meetup group, has more volunteers working the Tallulah Gorge Dam releases this month than any other group! Makes me want to pop with pride.
We do have two spots for this Saturday that have just opened up if any of you do not have plans for Saturday. If you are interested in volunteering for Saturday the 12th, I think from 11-3, please contact me directly and we will try to get you in.
