Saturday, October 24th will be the Lord of the Fork Race. It will have the usual format: One Minute Intervals from Skunk Beach area to Climax, unless for some reason Fist cleans up between now and then. The Rendezvous will be taking place at Carson Island, so we will do the awards there.

Kayak race through the Russell Fork Gorge. Start line is just around the right-hand bend below Fist, finish line is at Climax. Class 4-5, better know where you’re going in there. One minute interval starts. No entry fee, but we have $5 of expense for each racer, so donations are encouraged to help offset this. Every racer is expected to bring a prize for the winners, we’ll divide it all up after the race. Bib handout and waivers will be taken care of on race day. If you know someone that plans to race and is not on Facebook, please send me a message and I’ll try to contact them. Also message me if interested in volunteering for safety or other logistics.

There is a Facebook Event Page, which we’ll use to create a start list. It is open to the public, so invite anyone you think may be going.

River Trip Logistics

NOLICHUCKY GORGE River Trip (Class III/IV*) lead by APE’s Cruise Director, Wesley R. Bradley.

Cost: $5.00 for USA Raft bus shuttle.

*Please be mindful of the water level for the day and your skill set, if you are a first timer on this trip.  We will have the trip up to 3,000 CFS, but if the flow is above 1,500 CFS we will require you to execute a few practice rolls in flatwater at the put-in before we head on down the river. 

Meet at the USA Raft Outpost (take-out) at 11:00 A.M.  USA Raft will be shuttling our group up to the put-in using one of their raft buses and a boat trailer if needed!  This will make our logistics for shuttling very easy and our cars will be waiting for us back at the take out when we get off the river!  Please bring $5.00 to help cover the cost of this shuttle ride.

LOWER NOLICHUCKY River Trip (USA Raft Outpost to Sawmill – Class I-II) lead by APE’s Debbie Briscoe.  Plan to play a lot and maybe even stop & go swimming with a snack break included to make it a fun day on the lower!

Meet at the USA Raft Outpost (put-in) at 12:00 P.M. to set shuttle for the Lower Noli Trip.
