This has been a good month for paddling – ok, what month isn’t a good month for paddling?!?  The James River has been low but the Lower James through downtown Richmond has retained adequate levels for padding.  I just read a recap of the Coastals trip to paddle the Yough, Lower Big Sandy, and other rivers to our north.  And we’re getting ready for our first Hometown Throwdown here in Richmond (taking place this Wednesday, June 24 at 6pm – here’s an event link:

https://www.facebook.com/events/1437408479912844/

Since this is my first blog post as Richmond’s World Kayak Ambassador  I’ll give you a little background on myself.  I’m originally from Little Rock, Arkansas.  I moved to Richmond in January of 2014 following a year working for Nantahala Outdoor Center and Jackson Kayak.  A large part of why I chose Richmond is because of the year round flows on the James River and the overall quality of whitewater in the area.  I’m excited to represent World Kayak and have the opportunity to re-establish a presence here with 2-3 Hometown Throwdown (HTTD) events over the course of this summer.

That’s it for now.  I hope to see everyone at this weeks HTTD!

Northwest College in Cody

This weekend with temperatures in the 60′s , Northwest Community College made their way over to the Shoshone. Instructor Andy Quick of Gradient Mountain Sports ran a crew of fourteen students down the 6-Mile section. They worked on drills such as catching eddies, proper paddling techniques, and how to… swim through rapids? With the help from local boaters Ed Conning, Taylor Hensen, and Jerod Ready, there was plenty of safety for those who found themselves separated from their trusty vessel. It was great to see so many young people out on the river enjoying the sport of kayaking. Future river courses  will be offered through North West and Central Wyoming College over the summer months.

4th Annual Families Paddle Too!

When: Memorial Day Weekend

Where: Smokey Mountain Meadows Campground, 755 E Alarka Rd, Bryson City, North Carolina 28713

Cost: 1 child free with every paid adult. Adult camping fees will be $11 on a numbered tent site and $10 in group camping.

For more Info and to volunteer, contact coordinator Brent Summerfield: summerfieldbrent@gmail.com

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.
