2013 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #1

The first event in the 2013 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was full of fun! We had 15 competitors join in for some friendly downriver freestyle/slalom and boatercross competition!  We had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the Riverpark Campground bank & the river right beach.  The event was held at Big Rock on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN with warm humid weather. 
The river level was a healthy 2,200 CFS, which made the main Big Rock wave/hole feature a fast flushy wave train.  Since a rodeo competition …

2012 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #4

The final event in the 2012 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown Series closed in style!  We continued the trend of “the year of no rodeo” on th Noli, due to heavy rain earlier in the week leading up to the event. 
However, like we have been doing all season, we made the best of it and had 12 competitors join in for some friendly downriver freestyle/slalom and boatercross competition!  We had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the Riverpark Campground bank.  The event was held at Big Rock on …

2012 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown #3

The third event in the 2012 Nolichucky Hometown Throwdown series was kind of a shocker!  Just when we thought the river level for Big Rock was going to drop in for a good rodeo the day before, we awoke on event day to discover the river level was rising from rain overnight.  We have now coined this year’s Noli HTTD Series as “the year of no rodeo”!
 
However, we made the best of it and had 16 competitors join in for some friendly downriver freestyle/slalom and boatercross competition!  We had several …

We had 13 competitors join in for some friendly downriver freestyle/slalom and boatercross competition!  We had several spectators who watched and cheered on the competitors from the Riverpark Campground bank.  The event was held at Big Rock on the Lower Nolichucky River, TN with mild overcast weather.

So we started off our events at the USNWC last Thursday night with a Slalom Survivor Race USNWC style which means head-to-head and no rules!!! just fun.  Okay we have a few rules, like you have to start the race out of your boat and spin yourself around you paddle ten times, then boat up and seal launch into the hole…we call it Dizzy Paddle!  The races were a blast, and Dizzy paddle proved to be a great equalizer among all different levels of boaters.  We had 36 paddlers come …

Chicago Throwdown Results

Anyone who doesn’t think midwest boaters are badass –doesn’t know sh!t (literally).

South bend had storms the few days before the throwdown, and any of you familiar with the area know what this can do to the water quality on the St. Joe river… Pair that with the 42deg air temperature yesterday, and you’d think no one would want to get in their boats. Far from it! We had 9 boaters in attendance for our very first throwdown, representing Indiana, Illinois and Ontario. Hell Yeah!
