This event will be a float down the Tug Fork River located in Pike County, KY and Mingo County, WV. THIS IS A FAMILY EVENT! ANY CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT!
You can float in kayaks, canoes, floats, or whatever you wish to bring. You also have the option to fish while we float, we only ask that if you chose to fish that you do it away from the non-fishers and keep toward the back of our float. We will be meeting at the boat ramp located by the Mexican Restaurant (1069 Central Avenue, South Williamson, KY 41503, in South Williamson, KY. The boat ramp is located just prior to the restaurant on the right-hand side of the road. We will enter the river here. A shuttle service will be provided. We will unload floating devices and 1 person from each vehicle will be shuttled to our exit point at the Chattaroy Park and Ride. That person will drive their vehicle down to the Park and Ride and will be brought back to the boat ramp to enter the water with everyone. The float typically takes 2-3 hours, depending on the current and how fast we float.
You may bring snacks or drinks for the float. NO ALOCHOLIC BEVERAGES OR DRUGS OF ANY KIND ARE PERMITTED ON THE WATER. All participants will sign a waiver before entering the water and will be asked to sign a form allowing video footage. You are not required to be videoed.
