Support Elizabethton Whitewater Park in the Works

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

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:

Shoshone River Park Project

james wrote 710 days ago:


A group of local boaters have began to organize in Cody Wyoming. Their missions? To have access enhanced for all river users! The project would consist of enhancing around one mile of recreational area along the Shoshone River in Cody, WY. These enhancements would include: improved access for boaters and fisherman, improved parking and access to nearby hiking trails and climbing destinations, stabilization of existing banks, and the implementation of whitewater features at natural constriction areas. The group has began organizing meetings, making contacts, and proposing the project to possible stake holders. While the project is still in its infancy, members report they have received positive feedback from many groups. This is an exciting opportunity for Cody, and we look forward to learning more about the project!
