Come enjoy some games, races, pot-luck food, and donate to help maintain this great resource.
Several years ago, many paddlers came together and purchased land at Knight's Bridge, and donated it to American Whitewater. The land is maintained through local effort, funded by paddlers' donations through local clubs and directly to American Whitewater. If people don't belong to BWA or Vikings or Elkhorn Paddlers, they probably don't know the history, and haven't had a chance to pitch in to help.
This activity is a chance for people who appreciate the takeout/ put-in to have some fun, meet others who enjoy the Elkhorn, and donate a little $ to take care of the place.
Check out the BWA Forum for more detail about the day's activities -- it will be very informal and free-flowing.
To donate directly to American Whitewater, https://www.americanwhitewater.org/content/Membership/donate/ and note that it is for the Elkhorn takeout, or you can send a check earmarked for the Elkhorn to American Whitewater, PO Box 1540, Cullowhee, NC 28723
Thanks, and hope to see you on the river sometime!
