Curtis England started this weekly event in 2015 called the Nolichucky Beer League!  The event gets its roots from the Beer League started over on the French Broad Ledges in Asheville.

The NBL occurs on Thursdays at 6:30 P.M during April-October when river levels are between 750-2500 CFS.  Anyone is welcome to come out with their long boats to do attainments from U.S.A. Raft at 2 Jones Branch Rd, Erwin, TN to Twin Eddies.

The goal is to get the kayaking community fired up about some upstream paddling on this great section of river.  Paddlers are also encouraged to bring their beverage of choice for afterwards for some fun fellowship.

Come on out and join the Nolichucky Beer League on Thursday evenings for some attainment fun, racing and training!  If you don’t have a long boat give the Jackson Action Wagon a shout and it can hook you up for the evening.  The NBL hopes to see you on the Noli! :-)
