A whitewater park on the Lower Watauga River could be coming to Elizabethton, TN soon thanks to some good work between the Elizabethton IDEAS Group, Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts and Tennessee Valley Authority! :-)

Project Update:

Project Coordinator, Metin Eryasa, has spoken with the folks from River Restoration in Carbondale, Colorado and it looks like we will be bringing them to Elizabethton sometime in the first 2 weeks of February 2018.  While here they will survey our possible sites.  Then they will give a presentation of what we can expect and all that wil be involved.  There will also be a question/answer period so that by the end of the presentation local officials and residents will have a good idea of what we are proposing. The fee to bring River Restoration to Elizabethton is $6,800.  We already have raised over $5,000 towards the $6,800.  We are on the final stretch and I feel confident we will reach our goal.

You can help support the #SURFBETSY project by purchasing a window sticker (as seen above). The money from these stickers will go directly toward the project as well as let more people know what we are doing. Please go by Jiggy Ray’s Downtown Pizzeria and purchase a sticker. We are asking for a minimum $5 contribution for each sticker.

Check out the video link below about River Restoration and a couple of parks they have already built for more information:

APE’s Caring Christmas Project

james wrote 24 days ago:


The APE’s are joining together to spread some Christmas cheer this year by helping a local family in need.  The family recently (11/17/17) suffered the death of the father/husband.  He was the sole breadwinner for the surviving family.  The mother has been a stay at home mom taking care of their youngest boy who has a long term illness.  The mother has 4 children: 14 year old girl, 10 year old boy, 5 year old girl and 3 year old boy.  The mother will have no financial means to make Christmas happen for the family this year in trying to cover the family budget and funeral expenses for the husband/father. 

We APE’s want to make sure this family experiences the joy of Christmas again!  We are hosting a fundraising campaign from (11/20/2017-12/08/2017) to purchase Christmas gifts for this family on our APE’s PayPal website:

Simply enter your name in the box provided and select the “APE’s Caring Christmas Project” from the dropdown menu and hit the “Pay Now” button.  PayPal will walk you through the rest of the steps to submit your contribution of any amount.  Your caring financial support will be the key to the project realization.

Funds received for the project will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for the children and mother.  If we get enough funds we may also try to provide Christmas Dinner for the family.  We have already compiled a list of clothing sizes and interests of the children for the gift purchases.
