2017 HTTD Season kicks off April 26th

It’s that time again…

Hometown Throwdown Season

This year we have already had more precipitation than any other year in recorded history in the Northern Sierra so flows will be high throughout the summer.  With that in mind we are going to go a bit longer this year and hold events through June.  So grab your friends, dust off the paddling gear, and meet us in two weeks to kick things off.  HTTD will start at 5-530pm on Wednesdays every two weeks.

  • April 26th –  Reno Whitewater Park  –  Slalom Survivor Race
  • May 10th — TBD
  • May 24th — TBD
  • June 7th — TBD
  • June 21st — TBD

Because flows will be changing a lot this season, we will be adjusting the event type and location as we go. So check back in for information on the next event.  As always Colin has worked to get great sponsors for World Kayak in 2017, this year we already have lots of great gear from:

  • Jackson Kayak
  • Mountain Khakis
  • Ninkasi
  • Accent Paddles
  • IR
  • Kokatat
  • Effort Inc.
  • Astral

Remember that we will always have lots of great beer from Ninkasi Brewing.

See you on the 26th!!!!!

APE’s Celebrate 15 Years of Cleaning Up the Nolichucky River

james wrote 308 days ago:


Saturday, June 18th, marked the 15th Annual Nolichucky Cleanup.  The Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts have been hosting this event annually to help keep the Nolichucky River clean for paddlers, fishermen, and river-users alike!  The summer is a very popular time for people frequent the rivers recreationally and the APEs group is proud to help everyone see the beauty of the Nolichucky by keeping it clean the way nature presented it.

This year over 30 volunteers put blood, sweat, and tears into removing garbage along a 10+ mile section of the river below the gorge (USA Raft to Riverpark Campground). Paddlers loaded up their kayaks, rafts, or canoes with trash collected from the banks and maneuvered their loads to drop off points where the land crew picked up the garbage and transported it to the local dump station.

In total, 4 truckloads of trash and 28 tires were removed from the river! Pictured below Jeff Vannoy, a volunteer for Team River Runner and member of the Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts, picking up one of the many tires along the riverside.

After hours of hard work, volunteers enjoyed barbeque donated by Texas Roadhouse of Johnson City. A second part of the cleanup was a raffle for a Jackson FUN that was donated by Jackson Kayak. The proceeds of the raffle directly benefited Camp Bays Mountain as the group rebuilds its camp in a new location. Thanks to the generous donors and support of the paddling community, the APEs group was able to donate nearly $400 to Camp Bays Mountain!

Pictured below is Debbie Briscoe, the winner of the Jackson Kayak FUN and many-year coordinator of the cleanup, along with Wesley Bradley, the local Jackson Kayak Regional Team Member.

Overall the cleanup was a great success! USA Raft owner, Matt Moses, remarked, “You guys did awesome on the clean up! I paddled to Jackson Love yesterday and it looked so much better! We all love working with APEs and are proud to be your partner and home base on the Nolichucky!”

APE’s member, Jeff Baldwin, commented, “Great day on Saturday participating in the annual Nolichucky clean-up.  Awesome BBQ and good times hanging out with fellow paddlers. So enjoyed the day ………trying to remember if I gathered any trash… LOL!  Big thanks to Andrea Parra and Sara Reis as the event was a very nice start to their newly elected positions within the club!”

The APEs group is grateful to all the volunteers and sponsors who helped make the cleanup successful. A special thanks to USA Raft for providing the cleanup location and for all they do to help local paddlers get out on the river. What a great day!

Sponsors: Jackson Kayak, Mountain Sports Ltd., Chaco, Astral Buoyancy, NRS, US Forest Service, Kokatat, Landmark Learning, USA Raft, Uncle Johnny’s Hostel, Texas Roadhouse of Johnson City
