First Home Town Throw Down of 2018

transom wrote 59 days ago:


Water levels are high and so was the energy at Dead Dog Hole for some fun competition. The event starting out with a bang as someone driving by on I-90 called in a kayaker in distress and we were paid a visit by a couple of County Sheriff Deputies that just wanted to make sure everyone was OK. Both declined the offer to jump in some of our spare gear and get out on the water with us. We paired up in teams of two for a combined score rodeo. Each team got three rides and one down river freestyle session. Afterwards everyone hung out for a short surf session and caught view of a classic Eastern Washington Sunset.
1st Place went to Team Old School– Jacob Peterson and Drew Stephens. Scoring 29 points, mixing up some old school moves with smooth cart wheels and modern freestyle.
2nd Place went to Team Send It—Ben Jordan and Chris Mowry. Scoring 20 points, and going big on every ride with plenty of loops and even a solid wing over entry on the down river freestyle session.
Taking up the rear was Team Zero—Brian Jamieson and Blake Sommers. Scoring 0 points, and showing up fashionably late but just in time to catch some surf before sunset.

APE’s Lower Doe River Cleanup

bozemankayaker wrote 290 days ago:


Meeting at Green Bridge Landing river access across from Hampton High School at 10:00 A.M. to clean the Lower Doe River section to Valley Forge, TN.  Jerry Griffin will discuss the sections that he has mapped and crews assigned at the river access Saturday morning.

Most of the cleanup will be wading and walking the river banks to collect trash. We can still use boats to haul trash out on by pulling them with our rope, but at these levels the water will to shallow to paddle in most places.
We want to get as much trash as possible out of the river, but are looking to clean up to the flood plain for safety reasons and time limitations.  We will carry the trash to the roadside for pickup and removal.  Carter County is placing a dumpster at Green Bridge Landing to collect all trash from cleanup.  APE’s will provide trash bags and gloves to all participants.

Return to Green Bridge Landing by 4:00 PM for a pizza party from Jiggy Ray’s (http://jiggyrays.com/).
