Hey Jon, Group camping is available for $15.00 per person for the weekend payable to me. I've already paid for the site. If you would like your own camp site or hook ups then you should make arrangements directly with The Greenbrier Campground. Yes we have a group site that includes places to put tents side by side under an awning, you can also camp down below awning next to river- was rocky a couple of weeks ago but improvements were supposed to be made prior to our arrival and a couple of us have rv sites so there should be room for a tent or two there as well.
As we discussed. I'll be bringing my box trailer ( The Waller Hauler) and Lori and I sould be up there early Friday. Don't need hook-ups. (You've seen my setup) I'll setup where ever the old guy that runs the place tells me to but can make adjustments to the location if needed.

whitewater clinic expanded to 25 people! I Just talked to Chuck and he is going to make this happen on the web in the near future. We couldn't offer this expanded format without the generous support of the additional volunteers that have committed to help out.

9;00 am picnic shelter toward the end of the green field "the talk" (Greenbrier River Campground), 11:00-12:00 lunch and boat fitting 12:00-2:30 paddle stroke practice, eddy turns, ferrys, peelouts 3:30- 5:00 Ft. Spring to Campground paddle 5:00-6:30 showers, break 7:00 Stuarts for food campfire till whenever.
Tony, your good stature with the river gods may pay off. Gauges and forecasts look great. I will be there Friday.
For those coming from I-64, the easiest route is Exit 161, south on Rte 12 for 11 miles to Alderson, then left on 63. In 2 miles or so Stuarts will be on the right, and another 2 miles or so is the campground also is on the right.

so we are full then? That answers that question. I have a friend who's daughter may have been interested. I'll check and see if they want to be put on a wait list or not. Not 100% sure they could come anyway. I'll find that out.
So it starts at 9am Saturday. Can we arrive Friday night? In other words is that included in the $15/person or is that just for Saturday night? Are the adequate trees in the group camping area for hammock campers?
I think that's all the questions. At least for now. Thanks! Looking forward to the weekend!

hey Rick the $15.00 per head covers two nights, vast majority of clinic campers will be Fri. and Sat. night. Actually not that many trees in the group area, near or on the river bank and the camping area is under a structure that reminds me of a carport- maybe between the posts- also a few of us have individual campsites, maybe some hammock trees there as well.

some reminders that might make your weekend more enjoyable, first off if you need to borrow a boat and you didn't let me know on your registration form then you need to let me know pronto (personal message or phone call) so we can get you fixed up. even if your staying for just the day you may find a camp chair to be an ASS-Set! I'm going to be optimistic and suggest you bring sunscreen. If you're pessimistic bring a rain jacket. A little cash could be handy- to pay me for camping, I'll have t shirts, hoodies, stickers log books, and also have one wv guide book for sale. Extra set of car keys never hurts. Questions????

here is where it gets a little bit confusing- you mentioned on the message board wanting to try the xp but you listed the kilroy as your boat for the clinic- I'm pretty sure I can get people to bring more boats (so you can use the xp) but I do need to know that's what you want.

If I can run the course with the boat I have, I'll run it. If you think I can't run the course in it, then I will be needing a boat. I do know that I can surf eddys with it, have not tried much of anything else with it. I don't need to try the XP now, I went ahead and bit the bullet on a katana. I would feel more comfortable doing the class in my boat, question is if the boat can do it.
