Kayaking the Etowah

Thanks to many of you we were able to take all the men on a kayaking trip down the Etowah River. We had 41 men and guides on the trip as we had to split into 3 groups. It was a great combination of rapids along with a gentle flowing current. We made sure that everyone on the trip ended up in the river, either on their own accord or with a little help. We all spent a little extra time at the falls going over those rapids numerous times. The trip lasted about 3 1/2 hours and all were tired and hungry when we were done. The trip for me was capped off when I came around the last bend only to see Victor Gooch swing off of a rope swing and do a full gainer into the river. I was not only impressed but also amazed at the grace he showed. We ended the day with a trip to Ryan’s for an all you can eat buffet. I assure you we got our money’s worth. I know several had 4 plates of dinner along with another 4 plates of desert. I believe the management was happy to see us leave. We will be putting pictures and video on both Facebook and also our website. Check it out. Again, thank you so much to those of you who made this possible. We really appreciate all you do.

God Bless,
