The pool at ETSU was full of Wave Sport boats last night doing a little of everything…: rolling, cartwheeling, edging, even wet exiting. And that is what an ERA/WaveSport boat demo night is all about.

ETSU was on our calendar for last night; one of the schools we targeted for our 2007 Outdoor Program Push. Our second time to visit ETSU, we already knew that there was a lot of enthusiasm in this group. Not only have the pool rolling sessions been a success, but the school has revitalized the school’s kayak club, which will embark on its first river trip of the semester this weekend on the lower Nolichucky.

Johnson City is obviously a target-rich environment for paddling and hosts its own list of southeastern celebrities like Caleb Paquette, Ashley Strickland and Adam Herzog. In fact, all three stopped in to check out the action and hang out for the LVM premiere.

It is hard to imagine a better study break than a night of playing in kayaks (in a really nice, warm pool) and watching a carnage-rich LVM video. From Johnson City, we are now headed up to southern Virginia and Sweet Briar College for a big night. We are feeling smarter already!!
