This morning at 8 AM, unleaSHEd Women’s Adventure Festival pass holders can join @paddlechota and @billylush for free paddleboarding and kayaking (while supplies last) at Billy Lush Boards and Brews in Downtown Knoxville! If you plan to attend, save time and complete a waiver online at www.billylushboards.com!
Here is a short video about the Chota paddle club filmed (mostly) last weekend on a Class III+ trip on the Upper Pigeon River and a Class I/II trip on the Lower Pigeon River. This video shows club members working on kayaking skills like peel outs, S-turns, rolling in a current, and paddle strokes! Chota organizes whitewater and flatwater kayak/canoe trips, a paddle school in June, works with kayakers to improve skills, and promotes conservation efforts for rivers in our area. Plus, this group loves strong women like we do!
