Atlanta Hometown Throwdown Event #5 – Freestyle Competition

August 26 @ 1:00 PM

Feature: Big Creek, Roswell, GA (Water Dependent)

Come out and join us for our 5th HTTD,  a friendly freestyle competition on Big Creek in Roswell. Judging will be done by your fellow competitors and friends, and points will be awarded for everything from spins to unintentional rolls i.e. window shading.

Prizes will be given out for participation or volunteering, and not based on score. Winner’s just get bragging rights, and points in the throwdown standings.

-Sign In/ Registration will begin @ 1:00 PM at the Put In at Grimes Bridge Road. World Kayak will be providing on-line registration prior to the event and we will accept walk-on registration on the day of the event. We encourage you to use the on-line registration system to help us better prepare for the event. You can access the link http://worldkayakblogs.com/throwdown/register/

-We will put in and paddle down to the surfing rapid, where the competition will be held. After the competition we will paddle down to the take out at Vickery Creek Park.

-Awards Ceremony and Prize Draw will follow after we have gotten off the river, and will be held at the take out, Vickery Creek Park. You must be present to win a prize. There is an array of prizes for our local and national sponsors.

**Please note that this is a natural flow section of river. We will watch the online gauge to see if the section will be runnable. If it is not runnable, we will either change the venue or change the event. We will keep you notified if anything changes!
