Primary River: Ocoee
Point of contact: Angela Wood
It's that time of year again. The end-of-season trip that some of you have been working hard to make. We will be paddling the Ocoee Lite section of the Ocoee River on September 23. The plan is to meet at the Big Creek Access parking lot (otherwise known as the private boater takeout) at 10:00 A.M. From there we will consolidate boats, and set up a shuttle.
The Ocoee Lite section puts on below Slice-n-Dice and takes off at GoForth. There may be an option to go from Slice-n-Dice to the private boater takeout for those who are ready or already comfortable running Table Saw. I will not be including other put-in options so don't ask:)
General requirements are at least a 50/50 whitewater roll and participation in some of our training trips or the training trips of another club. (The Upper Pigeon or equivalent).
You MUST contact me by Wednesday, September 20, 2023, to get on the list for this trip.
I will cap the number of participants based on the number of safety boaters that I have, so don't procrastinate.
You can email, text or Facebook message me that you want to join or if you have questions.
Required gear: Coast guard approved PFD, whitewater canoe or kayak with floatation, skirt for your kayak, water sports helmet, paddle, appropriate clothing for the water’s temperature, closed toes shoes (no water sandals), a water bottle that clips into your boat.
Registration with Angela Wood, via email, is open now and closes Wednesday, September 20, 2023, at 7pm.
