Canoe Tug-o-War

June 12, 2016
On Wednesday, June 22, Paddle Georgia, A Project of Georgia River Network is invading downtown Calhoun!!
The invasion will feature a street party at the Calhoun Depot with music, food, canoe and kayak rides, and canoe tug-o-wars! Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m., and anyone can join in on the fun! The event is open to the public! The event will also feature food vendors, a DJ and dancing, and canoe and kayak test rides in the Cedar Creek Park pool. Test rides begin at 5:30 p.m.; tug-o-wars begin at 7 p.m.
Canoe tug-o-wars will be taking place in a massive portable pool provided by event sponsor Cedar Creek Park & Outdoor Center in Cave Spring. In these events, two canoes are tied end to end and co-ed teams try to paddle pull their opponents across the pool!
A double-elimination tournament will determine the tug champions. Registration for the tug-o-wars is $25 for each four-person team (3 paddlers and 1 substitute). Each team must include at least one woman. ALL proceeds will benefit New Echota Rivers Alliance, a Calhoun-based citizen group working to protect the Coosawattee, Conasauga and Oostanaula rivers!!
The event is sponsored by Georgia River Network, Coosa River Basin Initiative, New Echota Rivers Alliance, and the Gordon County Chamber of Commerce.
