APE's Logo“Operational schedules are determined daily.  This schedule is subject to change at any time due to changing electrical demand, weather conditions and lake levels.” 

Well it looks like we are going to get a 24 hour release from the Tuxedo Dam, so I will be leading a river trip on the Upper Green this Saturday, May 28, 2011 for APE’s that would like to join us.  This trip is an excellent intro into creeking (Class II-III+)!  Check out all the BETA for this run on American Whitwater @: http://americanwhitewater.org/content/River/detail/id/1079/

We will plan on meeting at the put-in (Tuxedo Dam) at 10:00 A.M. to set-up shuttle down to the Gallimore Private Lot.  Does anybody have a Green Key yet?  If not, I will swing by G.R.A. to purchase one for the season on the way to the put-in.

After we complete the run, there is a ¾ mile hike with your boat uphill to get to the take-out parking lot.  A smaller group of us with Class V experience will head on down the Green Narrows to the Fishtop take-out.

 For those wanting to car pool from the Tri-Cities, let’s plan on meeting in Johnson City at 8:00 A.M. at the parking lot beside of Arby’s off of the I-26 Exit 24 for Elizabethton (Map link – http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&source=s_d&saddr=I-26+E&daddr=S+Roan+St&hl=en&geocode=FRwgKgIdJn0X-w;Faj-KQIdi5IX-w&gl=us&mra=dme&mrsp=0&sz=17&sll=36.31318,-82.353022&sspn=0.0074,0.013036&ie=UTF8&ll=36.306601,-82.341242&spn=0.007401,0.013036&z=17).
 
Please contact me by e-mail before Friday at 4:00 P.M. or by phone Friday evening if you plan to join this trip, so I know how many to expect.

I hope to see you on the Green!
