Event Details

Ken and Christine Putnam host a fun afternoon of paddling during the 2018 YADKIN RIVERKEEPER TOUR  (9 mi); then, settle into an evening of music by the always sublime, Martha Bassett. Everyone is encouraged to bring a potluck dish to share. During the evening there will be free beer, wine, and food. 

The TOUR raises money for Yadkin Riverkeeper, allowing us to run education programs, conduct research and champion legislation that protects our waters.  

All paddlers must register. Registration closes on June 21, 2018

    • Paddlers with their own boats are charged a $38 entry fee per person per day to cover insurance, shuttle, processing fees and entry to post-paddle events. If you have paid your Yadkin Riverkeeper Membership Fee ($25), the entry fee to paddle is $30. The student paddling entry fee is $25. 
    • Don’t have a canoe or kayak? Yadkin Riverkeeper has negotiated preferred rates for kayak rental (holds one person, $37 per day) or canoe rental (holds two people, $49 per day). Rental charges are in addition to your entry fee.

IMPORTANT FOR REGISTERED PADDLERS: 

Registration opens at 2PM at the Putnam house, 4169 Scott Rd, East Bend, NC 27018.

Music starts at 6PM. Don't forget to bring a dish to share!

WE NEED VOLUNTEERS

Volunteer on LAND: 2-3:30P. You will help with parking, registration or loading boats onto trailers. If you volunteer during this time, you will be able to paddle for only $15 (boat rental fees apply).

Volunteer on WATER: 2-7P. You will be assigned a group of 10-15 paddlers to guide down the river. You must be a very good swimmer and be familiar with boat safety and first aid. You will also complete water safety training prior to the paddle. If you would like to sign up for this, we will call and check your qualifications prior to the paddle. If you volunteer during this time, you will be able to paddle for only $15 (boat rental fees apply).

Volunteer to Drive Shuttles: 5-7:30P. You will drive 12-person shuttle vans. These vehicles drive just like a car. Drivers require a valid NC driver's license. If you volunteer for the morning shift, you will be able to paddle for only $15 (boat rental fees apply). There is no cost to volunteer to drive in the afternoon because paddling is not an option, but you can join the party after the paddle for free.

Come to the Post-Paddle Party: The post-paddle party is from 6-9PM with music by Martha Bassett. Bring a dish to share!

Note: Personal Flotation Devices (PFD's) are REQUIRED for all paddlers. PFD's are included in your kayak or canoe rental; however, if you are supplying your own boat, please bring a PFD. All paddlers are required to sign a waiver; if you have a minor child, the waiver must be signed by a parent or guardian.

Disclaimer: All Yadkin Riverkeeper Paddle Trips are subject to change. Times and availability are flexible due to weather, flood gauges, and other circumstances beyond our control. Please allow extra time based on river conditions. All ending times are estimates. Yadkin Riverkeeper Paddles are alcohol-free.
