This is also a great opportunity to meet new paddling friends and renew old friendships! This is also a great event for those who just love being outdoors and want to support the ONLY organization in the State of Georgia devoted 100% to the protection and preservation of our rivers.Representatives from several paddling groups across Georgia will also be there.

    I don't socialize much off of the river, but this is one event I would not miss. Some folks I only see once a year, at this event. It is always good to catch up. The food is always excellent,, this year live music was added,,, door prizes, great beer,,, and all proceeds go to the best river organization in the state,,,What's not to like?

    This will be my last update on Brews, Boats & BBQ 2017. A heartfelt thank you to all Kayak Lessons For Beginners members who have purchased tickets! Your support allows this great organization to continue to protect our rivers in Georgia, improve access and educate the citizens of Georgia about these awesome resources. I hope you have a great time Sunday please say hi if I don't happen to find you first! There are still tickets available this year so we will keep the website open for ticket sales at least through noon tomorrow (Sunday) or until we sell out if you make a last minute decision to go. If we do not sell out we will offer limited sales at the door but availability is not guaranteed.
