Creeking is a style of whitewater paddling that is very different than typical big water rivers and is often misunderstood by new paddlers. Our local creeking legend and club Boofmaster, Wesley Bradley, will be providing us with a 90 minute introduction to this exciting whitewater genre. He will cover definitions, terminology, techniques needed, proper gear, and some creek locations.

We are allowed to bring in snacks and light refreshments. Please bring a paper and pencil, a boof quiz will follow the clinic.

This will be in Room 223 at the Toy F Reid Employee Center – 400 S Wilcox Dr, Kingsport, TN 37660

I will be purchasing pizza if you want to join my pizza order, please contact me.

Please join us afterwards for roll practice at the Kingsport Aquatic Center ($3).

APE’s Lower Doe River Cleanup

bozemankayaker wrote 295 days ago:


Meeting at Green Bridge Landing river access across from Hampton High School at 10:00 A.M. to clean the Lower Doe River section to Valley Forge, TN.  Jerry Griffin will discuss the sections that he has mapped and crews assigned at the river access Saturday morning.

Most of the cleanup will be wading and walking the river banks to collect trash. We can still use boats to haul trash out on by pulling them with our rope, but at these levels the water will to shallow to paddle in most places.
We want to get as much trash as possible out of the river, but are looking to clean up to the flood plain for safety reasons and time limitations.  We will carry the trash to the roadside for pickup and removal.  Carter County is placing a dumpster at Green Bridge Landing to collect all trash from cleanup.  APE’s will provide trash bags and gloves to all participants.

Return to Green Bridge Landing by 4:00 PM for a pizza party from Jiggy Ray’s (http://jiggyrays.com/).
