Cold Weather Paddling CLINIC at Overmountain Outdoors

Nov
21
6:00 pm

Overmountain Outdoors Special Event!

Do you love paddling in the summer and want to keep it going in the winter? But you’re not too sure what it takes to do it safely?  Overmountain Outdoors and Wesley R. Bradley are teaming up to offer a FREE clinic on how to properly outfit yourself for cold water & winter paddling.  Join us on Tuesday, November 21st, 2017 at Overmountain Outdoors and learn how to dress for paddling success in cold weather!  Clinic starts at 6:00 – 7:30 P.M.

Many paddlers have the misconception that after the leaves fall off the trees, that boats get stored till the flowers come back out.  The fact of the matter is in the southeast winter and early spring host some of our area’s best paddling, especially in whitewater!

We will be showcasing many products from Immersion Research & Kokatat during the clinic.  We will give tips and tricks on proper use and care of many products you can use to keep you toasty warm in the cold weather.

You may want to bring your own folding chair to the clinic, because seating is limited at the store.

Overmountian Outodors is located at:

142 W Market St

It is a paddling pool party on Thursday nights from 7:00 – 9:00 P.M.!

Where:

Kingsport Aquatic Center‏

1820 Meadowview Parkway
Kingsport, TN 37660
423-343-9758

 

Contact the Aquatic Center for session confirmation or questions regarding the facility.

 

Cost: $3.00 per person

Come join the Appalachian Paddling Enthusiasts and other paddlers from around our region at the Kingsport Aquatic Center‏ for tips & tricks about basic kayaking skills and learning how to roll.

During the summer, we will be in the outdoor pool, but in cases of rain, the center will partition off part of the indoor pool for us.  During the winter, the center will have bulkheads installed in the indoor pool and we’ll have a section for our use.  That indoor pool is huge!

 

Logistics for bringing in your boat and equipment are pretty simple.  There is a gate to the outdoor pool and a door to the indoor pool.  The gate/door will be opened during the initial rush of people right around 7:00 P.M. for 10 minutes or so.  After the gate/door is closed, people can drop their boat & equipment off at the door, walk to the front desk to pay the $3.00 and someone will go open the gate/door for them.

We will also have occasional access to the lazy river to use for kayak practice in current!  Stay tuned for announcements for these special events…

 

Please note: The Jackson Action Wagon will occasionally provide FREE kayak demos of the current fleet of boats at these pool sessions, but neither the pool nor the J.A.W. provides paddling equipment (Paddle, Spray Skirt, etc…) for these sessions.  If you are just starting out in the sport and do not yet have your own equipment, please get in touch with the Event Sessions Contact to see if you can get some loaner gear for a session.
