Ladies on the Lower G 2012 - Mind Body Paddle

Ladies on the Lower G 2012

Ladies on the Lower G 2012

Ladies on the Lower G will be taking over the river again this year on Friday, September 14th to raise money for American Whitewater (AW)!  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!

Hard moves in easy water for a powerful mindset

You may think you know what practicing hard moves in easy water means, and I bet you don’t think of it as paddling the Narrows of the Green (a Class IV-V section). Earlier this month I paddled into the Narrows of the Green to watch Green Race. For those of you unfamiliar with the race,

Boundaries for a powerful mindset

The rapids you love exist because of the boundaries of the river banks. Those boundaries create a container in which the water flows powerfully. If you want a powerful mindset, you want to create your own river banks that empower you to feel confident, live and paddle at your best. What happens when you don’t
