BENEFITING: New River Conservancy
EVENT DATE: Jul 23, 2016
If trash were treasure, we wouldn't be fundraising!
Join New River Conservancy on the New River for the first annual Boat & Float, costume contest, & after party on Saturday, July 23rd.
All money raised will fund our river cleanup efforts for the 2016-2017 year!
Registration packet pickup will begin at 10:00AM at Riverside Canoe in Crumpler, NC. Shuttles will leave promptly at 11:30AM.
**BOAT (Kayak/Canoe) AND FLOAT (Tube) LAUNCHES WILL BE DIFFERENT. Please be aware that because tubes are slower, the kayaks and canoes will be shuttled to a put-in further upstream. Boats will eventually catch up with tubes. Time on water (regardless of boat or float) will be approximately 2 hours.**
While on the water, be on the lookout for the Party BARge which will be stocked with snacks and libations. Don't worry, Woody, Waddle, & Quackers will show you the way!
Costume & Boat Decorating Contest!
1976, America's 200th birthday - and the birth of our beloved New River Conservancy! Dress your boat (and yourself) like it's 1776 / 1976! Whether it's powdered wigs or bell bottoms, show us what you've got! You bring the duds, and we'll bring the prizes!
But wait, that's not all! Join us for the AFTER PARTY!
Join us for the After Party at Boondocks Brew Haus in downtown West Jefferson for great food, tasty drinks, and great music by Andy Ferrell! Entry is $10 without Boat & Float registration.
Party begins at 4 and will wind down around 7PM!
Gather your friends and family and come paddle with us to celebrate 40 years of protecting the water, woodlands, and wildlife of the New River Watershed!
