APE’s Babes on the Waves

 

Hey Gals, It’s time!! Time to get together and have our Annual “Babes On The Waves” River Run!

Saturday, August 20

Yes it’s a double trip on the Pigeon River again this year, staggering an Upper and Lower run!

Upper Trip (Class II-III+) meeting at 11:00 A.M. At NOC, 3485 Hartford Rd, Hartford, TN
lead by Jennifer Bradley

Lower Trip (Class I-II) meeting at 2:00 P.M. At NOC, 3485 Hartford Rd, Hartford, TN
lead by Debbie Briscoe

The Girls are invited after the run to stay at Joanne’s Condo in Cosby.* **
But if you can’t stay the weekend and just want to paddle simply meet us Saturday at the NOC….
After we’re off the river we can all go out to eat in Newport where some may choose to go home or go back to Joanne’s.

Once a year all the female APE’ets come together to rule the river. All are welcome, even you guy’s who don’t want to be left out, we don’t discriminate, but it’s our day and we want to get as many female paddlers out on the water as we can! So all you Gals out there plan to join us on the water and bring your fellow if he dares!

*Gals only are invited to stay Saturday night at Jo’s condo for a fun overnight thru Sunday.
Bring snacks and breakfast, sleeping bags and pillows!
There are plenty of beds and a pull out couch & cots.
Sunday: Joanne wants us gals to enjoy a day at the pool before we have to head home so don’t forget your bathing suits!

**Please contact Deb to confirm that you want to stay at Jo’s and to get directions and the address…..

Official Babes on the Waves Tee Shirts that were per-ordered will be available at the run for $15.00 each.  I will have 3 or 4 extra if you missed ordering one so call me pronto if you want one reserved for you!

Watauga Gorge Race

The Race is set for this Saturday if the river is above 300 CFS @ 2:00 PM!

Come up to the high country for the Watauga Race*.

Be at the put-in, with shuttle set at 2:00 PM.  Flow must be above 300cfs in order for the race to happen.

Format will be the same as previous years– mass start free for all from the put-in to the pool below Stateline.

The start time is late enough for folks to get a practice lap in the AM (which is recommended if you aren’t familiar with the run), or if it rains more to get a quick lap on something else.  Also, Try to bring as few cars up to the top as possible, as parking up there is limited.

Bring it…..

*The Watauga Race is not a race, it’s a group paddle with no one setting safety and maybe even no one keeping track of the time, so don’t race if you aren’t comfortable running the Watauga solo.

The details….

You asked for it so here it is!
This is the infamous, glorious long awaited 5th annual Jordan Race and as usual we’re giving short notice so please share the sh@# out of this so we can make folks rally!

Registration is between 1 and 2 pm, race at 3, 2 minute intervall starts. Be ready when you need to be.

The Jordan is a rad class IV-V run with a total of 6 big bed rock drops of which we’re most likely racing the last three IV’s and all the boogie inbetween.

It’s a team race with at least two boaters in the team.
Familiarity with the river and full creek safey equipment are expected.
Times will be taken, and the fastest boaters will win.

Safety will be provided by your team member. Any help you get outside that from other racers, organizers, bystanders or lost tourists should be considered a bonus so make sure you would be comfortable paddling the river alone with your friend on any other day, when glory is not on the line.

If anybody is keen to help out with timing and hopefully additional safety please let us know!

We’ll do awards after and as usual probably have a bit a of a ditch party…

As far as camping goes we’ll see how busy the river left or right pull outs at the take out bridge are and take it from there.
Bring your bikes, there’s a lot of balling trails coming out right there.

Share the stoke and see you all in Revy!!!
