October 1 & 2, the Nantahala River will be the site of the 2011 U.S. Canoe/Kayak National Championships hosted by the Nantahala Race Club (NRC).
There are two days’ of races and events to spectate. Saturday will be the qualifying events and Sunday the semi-finals and finals.
In addition there will be a head-to-head slalom competition on Saturday night that will be just plain fun to participate in/watch. And on top of all the competition will be the Saturday night music by the awesome Steel String Session Band at the Pub.
If you are interested in being more than just a spectator, the NRC is always looking for volunteers! Check the NRC event site for information on each day’s line up and contact information for volunteering.
