Next Club Meeting

Tuesday, November 19, 2019 7:30 pm at the Casual Pint on Hardin Valley Road.

We will be approving our contributions for 2019 and developing our list of officers for the election at our Christmas Party.

The Program will include a presentation by Obed Wild & Scenic River Ranger Matt Hudson who will tell us about emergency access for kayakers in and out of Clear Creek, Obed River, and Daddys Creek.

To see a great Bio on Matt click: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mC6Avp2_OPk


We will also meet and eat before the meeting at Grill Don Gallos on Hardin Valley Road, 6 PM. Call or text Darren Price if you want to come eat with us so he can save you a spot. If you don’t know his number send me a message!

ETWC Annual Christmas Party!


Saturday, December 7, 2019 at 6:30 PM.

Location: Sam Suffern’s (Message me for address)
The club will provide turkey, ham, wine, beer, soft drinks, tableware, plates, cups, and rudimentary condiments.  Attendees should bring a dish to pass around. This results in the pot-luck feast from heaven…

We’ll have a business meeting somewhere along the way; to elect officers, schedule roll practice for the season, decide which charitable donations we’ll make for the year, and whatever else Mark and the Board feel is needed.


We’ll also have a gift exchange. Basically, this is an opportunity to steal from your friends without guilt.  If you want to participate, bring a wrapped gift.  Gifts need to be nice; something in the $20-up range.  A handy guideline is to bring something you would enjoy taking home (because, given our rules, you might!). There will be a review of ETWC-specific rules before it begins; these have evolved over the years to keep a lid on the mayhem.

  Nanty Trip 9/21
Posted by: Darren Price - 09-19-2019, 08:57 AM - Forum: ETWC Posts/Threads - No Replies

I will be leading this weekend's beginner's trip which will take place on the Nantahala River in western NC.   The plan is to meet at the Patton's Run put-in by 11:00 am.  Boats will be unloaded and the shuttle will be run.  

If you plan to participate (beginners and experienced boaters alike) PLEASE communicate your intentions (no later than Thursday evening) by replying to this email, posting on the form or by text (865) Seven 42-4136.   If no interest is shown, the trip will likely be cancelled.

If the trip is a go, there will be a group meeting at Fort Sanders West at 8:00 AM to carpool to the Nantahala.  We usually remain at the NOC after the trip is complete to eat dinner and as such we get back late (typically 9:00 PM).

A couple of notes for boaters who have never paddled the Nantahala, the water is cold and unlike the Hiwassee, most of the paddling is in the shade.   Regardless of the air temperature, warm clothing is necessary.  Secondly, all boaters must have a river pass.  River passes can be purchased at various outfitters or the NOC.  Prices have increased from last year, I know the season pass is $10, not sure about the day passes (last years cost $1 that has likely increased to $2).  The carpool group will stop and purchase river passes prior to arrival at the Pattons Run put-in.

Thanks,
Darren Price
