2016 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #2

The second event in the 2016 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was a new event format for us by racing up river.  We had a good turn out with 12 competitors joining in for some friendly attainment race competition with the Nolichucky Beer League!  We had a few spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the river bank.  The event was held in the Nolichucky River Gorge, TN on a nice mild evening with mostly cloudy skies.

The river level was around 950 CFS and spirits were high with many of the racers eager to give this new race event style a go!  The course start was up at a spot in the bottom of the gorge known as Cherokee Dam above the USA Raft river access.  The finish line was the river right eddy at the bottom of Twin Eddies (The last Class III rapid in the gorge) 1 mile upstream.  The course have several class I-II rapids racers had to ascend to make it to the finish line.  We launched classes in a mass start format and good times were had by all!

Greetings from your World Kayak Ambassador!

I hope everyone has been enjoying this nice weather and some higher than usual water levels on the River James (I know I have).

The purpose of this post is to let you guys know that I am planning three or four World Kayak events for this summer.  Tentative dates are June 2, June 30, July 21, and September 13 or 15.

This year, in addition to the seasoned paddlers who typically attend the events, I want to encourage those who are new or relatively new to kayaking to “come on out”.  There’s be plenty of prizes (free schwag) for everyone who participates and I believe a good time will be had by all.

Stay tuned for specific details on each event.  More details will follow in the coming weeks.

Have ideas for events or how to make our gatherings as inclusive as possible?  Please share.  You can PM me on Facebook or email me at toddanderson6@gmail.com.

Oh, one last thing…a quick shout out to our sponsors:  Mountain Khakis, Keen Footwear, Ninkasi Brewing, Shred Ready, Astral Bouyancy, Smith Optics, Accent Paddles, Rapid Transit; and last but not least – Jackson Kayak.

Cheers!

Todd

The first event in the 2016 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was some fast paddling fun! We had a great turn out with 19 competitors joining in for some friendly downriver boatercross competition!  We had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the start and finish line.  The event was held on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN with cool and breezy mostly sunny skies.

The river level was around 1,700 CFS and spirits were high with several first timers in this event!  The course start was at the USA Raft river access and the finish line was the Chestoa Pike Bridge 1.5 miles downstream.  The course have several class I-II rapids and a couple of islands to negotiate along the way.  We launched classes in a mass start format and good times were had by all!
