Nantahala Hometown Throwdown #1 (May 5, 2012)

It was a happy Cinco de Mayo at the Nantahala Wave! Saturday morning at the river began with rain, but the clouds soon parted and made way for sunshine and a beautiful afternoon for some playboating. The first Nantahala Hometown Throwdown of 2012 could not have been a better day filled with nice weather, big air moves, and lots of friendly competition and good sportsmanship!

Are you prepared for a fantastic 2012 at the Nantahala?

2012 is poised to be a great year around the Nantahala River! The Western North Carolina HTTD series will include four events during the summer and one event in the Fall at the Nantahala River. Mark your calendars for these dates:

Saturday, May 5
Sunday, June 17
Sunday, July 22
Sunday, August 19
Saturday, September 29 (NOC GAF weekend)

The three Sunday events will occur the day after the NOC Canoe Club Challenge, so plan a full weekend of competition including slalom, freestyle, and even downriver racing (on the August date only). The Nanty events will be held at the Nantahala Wave and the smaller “Bridge Wave.”

On Saturday, September 29 (NOC GAF weekend), a special HTTD event will be held–more details about this championship event will be released soon.

In addition to the HTTD events, there will be plenty of other events to get involved in: the NOC Freestyle Shootout, the ERA/Wavesport Nantahala Open, wildwater and slalom events, and the NOC’s 40th anniversary. Check the Events section for information on upcoming events in the Nantahala & Asheville areas.

It’s a great year to get involved so be sure to contact Amanda if you would like to volunteer for one of the Nantahala Hometown Throwdown events or if you have events to add to the calendar.
