Just a lil down river running on the Hiwassee River...We'll leave the Ocoee alone for this weekend...bring your kayak and a dry jacket for a relaxing jaunt into Reliance! This is a Class II river section that is fairly tame, but don't EVER take that for granted. Safety on the river (as well as all of my events) is paramount...yes, we'll have fun, but we'll keep our heads on! With that being said...PFDs and helmets are a must for my WW events...This is part 3 of the weekend of events for me, so if you can make it to this...check out the other events that start Friday thru Sunday from me....SYOTR

p.s. my brother and I should have enough room in our two vehicles to shuttle everyone less thing to worry about!
