Saturday July 6 Beginner's Trip
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 post or by phone/txt msg to eight 65 three 12 2623.   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. 

Hope to see you this weekend.
