As usual, Girls at Play staff is volunteering to be safety kayakers and guides for the day and in exchange, this year, we are suggesting that each person donate on a sliding scale between $25 and $50 (whatever you can afford, keeping in mind all of the great work that AW does for us). All of the proceeds go to AW so that they can continue to work for the river access and conservation that we whitewater paddlers have the privilege of enjoying.
The idea is to get a bunch of awesome, fun, women paddlers together enjoying the river and helping each other gain confidence and skills. This is a great day to come out for your first time down the Lower G. We are taking up to 20 paddlers so be sure to make your donation early.
Everyone who participates will be entered into a drawing to win awesome prizes from our partners including Kokatat, Vapur and Smith Optics!
We’ll meet at the take-out to the Lower Gauley (upper lot) at 10 a.m. Please bring a lunch to eat on the river and be prepared to help with shuttle.
IMPORTANT! You must register ahead of time! For safety and fun we are limiting the group to 20 women. You can register by calling Girls at Play at 828.333.4482 and giving your donation via credit card OR by choosing one of the donation options below and paying online. We can’t take any money on park service land so everyone has to book ahead of time by credit card. We look forward to paddling with everyone and supporting AW!
