Summer Roll Sessions
Summer roll sessions will begin June 21st at the Tates Creek Aquatic center. Come out and learn the finer points of rolling your whitewater boat. For those of you who already have the mojo there is a need for instructors. The sessions this year are on Thursday nights at 8pm. Check the club calendar, forum or facebook for more details.

2018 BWA & Viking Summer Party
The club summer party is set for August 10th - 12th at the Ocoee. This event has everything from fun on the river to campfire partying and even a down river race. The Ocoee River location provides the perfect spot for just about every skill set. The upper and middle sections of the Ocoee provide really good paddling for class 3 and 4 boaters and the nearby Hiwassee River provides a more relaxing class 2 river run for those just wanting to relax for a nice summer time paddle.
