Freedom Hall Pool

1320 Pactolas Rd

Johnson City, TN 37604

(423) 461-4872

Come join the J.A.W. , Mahoney’s Outfitters, some APE’s, and other paddlers from around our region at the Freedom Hall Pool for tips & tricks about basic kayaking skills and learning how to roll.

Already mastered the basics and have a bomb proof roll? There is still a lot of fun to be had at our pool session by practicing your flat-water freestyle moves and fellowshipping with other paddlers in a nice warm water environment.

Admission to the pool is $2, rolling advice is free! Contact the office of the pool for session confirmation or questions regarding the facility. (423) 461-4872

Please note: The J.A.W. does provide the current fleet of boats for demo at the pool session, 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 post a message on the APEs yahoo group site or contact me with this link:

http://worldkayakblogs.com/wildwildwes/contact-me/

We will try our best to get you outfitted for the night! Also feel free to contact me for any other questions or comments you may have with the above link.

I hope to see you at the pool!

TRR Pool

 

 

 

 Johnson City, TN Chapter of Team River Runner

 Sessions are from 7:30 P.M. – 9:00 P.M. on most Wednesdays / or noted otherwise in dates listed above at the ETSU Center for Physical Activity (CPA) Pool.  Gear up earlier if you want.

These pool sessions are limited to veterans and volunteers affiliated with Team River Runner ONLY.
As usual, pool session info below!  Big reminders: rinse all boats every time unless they’ve been kept at the pool and sign in on the kayak club’s log.
Pool session reminders:
- New paddlers can not participate in pool sessions until they have completed an Intro to TRR session, received medical clearance, and signed all waivers.

- Always sign in on the sheet kept by the ETSU kayak club.  This will insure that we continue to get pool time.

- If you haven’t filled out a paddler/staff info sheet, please let me know.  Same goes for release forms (DSUSA, VA, and media).  All paddlers (vets and volunteers) sign an release at every TRR event.

- Pool sessions are 7:30-9 PM.  We can’t hit the water until 7:30, and need to respect the kayak club’s time and clear out of the pool area by 9:30 (not out of the pool by 9:00 or so).  I’ve been showing up at 7:00 to get gear organized and do pool side teaching.   Feel free to come early to get your gear in order.  The back door is usually open by 7:00 or so.

- Always rinse your boat off before bringing it into the pool area.  If the hose isn’t by the door, just ask and we’ll find it.  If you boat has been hermetically sealed since the last pool session, you’re probably good to go.  If there’s any possibility it has grass, dirt, bugs, etc. in or on it, please give it a quick rinse.  ETSU has been generous with their pool, so let’s keep it clean!

IMPORTANT: NO paddler participants should be in the pool without TRR volunteers present.  For a very new paddler (i.e., no wet exit demonstrated), a minimum of two volunteers must be in the pool (not in boats) prior to putting the paddler in a boat on the water.  Make sure that you know the skills of your paddlers and use common sense.

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.

Curtis England started this weekly event in 2015 called the Nolichucky Beer League!  The event gets its roots from the Beer League started over on the French Broad Ledges in Asheville.

The NBL occurs on Thursdays at 6:30 P.M during April-October when river levels are between 750-2500 CFS.  Anyone is welcome to come out with their long boats to do attainments from U.S.A. Raft at 2 Jones Branch Rd, Erwin, TN to Twin Eddies.

The goal is to get the kayaking community fired up about some upstream paddling on this great section of river.  Paddlers are also encouraged to bring their beverage of choice for afterwards for some fun fellowship.

Come on out and join the Nolichucky Beer League on Thursday evenings for some attainment fun, racing and training!  If you don’t have a long boat give the Jackson Action Wagon a shout and it can hook you up for the evening.  The NBL hopes to see you on the Noli! :-)

Jerry’s Baddle is a dual sport race that began in 2006 to honor a good friend, Jerry Beckwith, who had been diagnosed with ALS. The race was born out of a desire to keep his spirit and passion alive by raising money to help fight the disease that took his life and to foster the community he loved.

The race consists of 4 miles of whitewater kayaking through the Green River Narrows followed by 26 miles of road cycling with 4000 ft of cumulative climbing.

APE’s Nolichucky Gorge 1st Timer’s River Trip & Picnic

Aug
19
11:00 am

River Trip Logistics

NOLICHUCKY GORGE River Trip (Class III/IV*) lead by APE’s Cruise Director, Wesley R. Bradley and Jennifer Bradley.

Cost: $5.00 for USA Raft bus shuttle.

*Please be mindful of the water level for the day and your whitewater skill set.  Please also ensure you bring a whitewater boat suitable for the river conditions.  Low water flow (<600 CFS) will be more technical with a creek like feel and broaches will occur more often without good boat control.  High water flow (1,200> CFS) will be more pushy and swims can be long and boat/gear lose can occur.  We will have the trip from 250 - 3,000 CFS.  However, to ensure the safety of all participants on this trip we will require 1st timers to execute a few basic paddling maneuvers and/or practice rolls/self rescue in flat water to qualify at the put-in before we head on down the river, if the river flow is not in optimal ranges (600-1,200 CFS)

Meet at the USA Raft Outpost (take-out) at 11:00 A.M.  USA Raft will be shuttling our group up to the put-in using one of their raft buses and a boat trailer if needed!  This will make our logistics for shuttling very easy and our cars will be waiting for us back at the take out when we get off the river!  Please bring $5.00 to help cover the cost of this shuttle ride.

 

LOWER NOLICHUCKY River Trip (USA Raft Outpost to Sawmill – Class I-II) lead by APE’s Cruise Director, Debbie Briscoe.  Plan to play a lot and maybe even stop & go swimming with a snack break included to make it a fun day on the lower!

Meet at the USA Raft Outpost (put-in) at 12:00 P.M. to set shuttle for the Lower Noli Trip.

APE’s Picnic

Meet at the USA Raft Outpost at 6:00 P.M.

This is our last big “get together” for the year.  We will have tasty food catered by TBA at USA Raft when we get off the river!  Please feel free to bring any side dishes or deserts to share with the group.  If you are an APE’s member the meal will be FREE and non-APE’s members can chow down with us for $9.00 per person.  We will also provide water and sweet tea for beverages at the picnic.  If you do wish to bring adult beverages to the picnic, USA Raft has asked that you drink them from a cup (NO glass or cans!).  You may also want to bring a folding chair due to limited seating.

 

What to bring:

·         $5.00 per person for shuttle, if running Noli Gorge

·         Appropriate whitewater boat, paddle & gear that you own (Yes, I will sing the song while we are loading!)

·         $9.00 to eat at picnic per person, if you’re not an APE’s member.  Or $17.00 ($22 for family) to get you signed up as an APE’s member through 2018 and cover your meal!

·         Folding chair for picnic

·         Feel free to bring side dish or dessert to share at picnic.

 

RSVP

To sign-ups for this event please send the following information for each person attending to Wesley R. Bradley:

1.      Full name

2.      River running section (Gorge or Lower)

3.      Are you a first timer on the run?

4.      Are you eating at picnic meal?

Saturday, October 28th will be the Lord of the Fork Race. It will have the usual format: One Minute Intervals from Skunk Beach area to Climax, unless for some reason Fist cleans up between now and then. The Rendezvous will be taking place at Carson Island, so we will do the awards there.

Kayak race through the Russell Fork Gorge. Start line is just around the right-hand bend below Fist, finish line is at Climax. Class 4-5, better know where you’re going in there. One minute interval starts. No entry fee, but we have $5 of expense for each racer, so donations are encouraged to help offset this. Every racer is expected to bring a prize for the winners, we’ll divide it all up after the race. Bib handout and waivers will be taken care of on race day. If you know someone that plans to race and is not on Facebook, please send me a message and I’ll try to contact them. Also message me if interested in volunteering for safety or other logistics.

Spectators Information:

Be respectful of no parking areas on Big Hungry Road. There is often good parking available just past the trail head. The hike in is steep and slippery. Wear good shoes and bring an extra jacket. It gets cold down in the gorge. Follow this GPS location for SPECTATOR PARKING
