Well, due to the First weekend trips not being held as planned, We are going to change this trips location to the Lower green. Since we didn’t get a chance to practice our basic skills on the 4-5th, we will try and get some practice in on Sunday. I just think many won’t be ready for the Upper Green without some more practice. If anyone is interested, I am planning on trying to run the Upper Green on Monday morning. Sorry about the change, but the original focus of these trips was to help those that need it most, and I’d like to stay true to that ideal.
This will be a instructional/practice trip that will cater to beginners and less experienced paddlers. Experienced paddlers are welcome to come out to provide support for those that need it. Hopefully the weather will cooperate and we will be able to get some good practice in.
We will meet at the put in at 10am.
Directions to the put in:
From Asheville, Take rt 26 east to exit 59. Turn left onto Holbert Cove rd. Go back under rt 26 and take the first left onto Green River Cove rd. Be careful as the road has some very tight switchbacks. At the end of the switchbacks, there will be a gravel parking lot on the left. This is the put in, and where we will meet.
Please be aware that whitewater gear is required. This includes: helmet, PDF, skirt, ww boat with float bags or an inflatable kayak. IK paddlers are still required to wear helmets.
You should also have: a whistle that works in water, sunscreen, nose clips, first aid kit, snack and water.
