Learn to creek boat from the author of the Creeking Bible!

(Registration Deadline—April 16, 2016)

Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts (APEs) is pleased to announce another of its Paddle with the Pros clinics, this time by hosting an Intermediate Creeking Clinic with Leland Davis.  Leland has been teaching people to kayak for over 20 years.  In 2005, he became one of the first instructors to offer creeking-specific clinics, and he has since lead creeking clinics and adventure paddling trips across the US, in Mexico, and in Chile.  He’s the author of two whitewater guidebooks, ‘The River Gypsies’ Guide to North America’ and ‘North Carolina Rivers & Creeks,” and was the original founder of the Green River Race.

This one day course is designed for the intermediate level aspiring creek boater.  No previous creeking experience is necessary although strong intermediate kayaking skills (CL 3+) and a solid roll are required.  The course will take place on a river similar to Wilson’s Creek in difficulty and specific location will be determined as we get closer to the date.  The class will be limited to 10 students.  If you’ve thought about getting into creeking this is your chance!  Send in your registration form and payment to take advantage of this outstanding and rare opportunity to learn from one of the world’s best.

COURSE OBJECTIVES: Introduction and development of skills that will allow participants to increase their competency and comfort on class 3/4 creeks.

COURSE PREREQUISITES: Students should be proficient in class 3+ whitewater and have a solid roll.  Participants should be in good health and overall fitness and possess solid swimming ability.  Minors must be accompanied by parent or guardian.

Ladies Green River Takeover

The idea of this day is to get as many awesome women as we can out on the Green river together. It will be all about simply having fun on the water together as a big group of rad ladies. All too often the river is filled with men and I want to have a day where the women take it over!The plan is to start with a group run on the Upper followed by a trip down the Narrows. If you’re not up for the Narrows, then we’ll have a group taking out after the Upper. It is not meant to be a day of instruction or ideal for first timers, but of course the idea would be to support each other, share lines, suggestions, etc…

After the run, we’d like to all come together at Fishtop for some drinks, light food and hanging ou…t! The event is sponsored by Dagger Kayaks and Adventure Technology Paddles.

Additionally the event will be a fundraiser for the Shannon Christy Memorial Fund, a fund to honor Shannon’s memory by supporting women in the paddling community. We are recommending (it is not required) a minimum $10 donation for the event which will also get you a raffle ticket and the chance to win a paddle from AT, a sparyskirt, throw bag and gear bag from Seals Sprayskirts and Accessories, gift certificates from Mountain Khakis, a pair of shoes from Astral Whitewater and great GIRLS AT PLAY swag!

Mark your calendars and share this event with anyone who might be interested! We want ALL women who feel comfortable paddling either the Upper Green or the Narrows. Lets see how many ladies we can get out there!

The plan is to meet each morning to discuss river options to paddle. If folks want more organized activities then we need volunteers to step up to help.

Do we want a group dinner? Then we need folks to step up to plan it. Maybe some evening activities for the kids. Who can plan it? If you have an idea, then go for it. If you are willing to help, let Brent know.
