Greetings Fellow Paddlers, Walkers & Cyclists!
Smith River Fest is coming: September 4-7, 2009
DRBA is still accepting video submissions for the upcoming Smith River Film Festival to be held on Sept. 4th (Deadline to register is August 24th). We have already received some great entries and want to see YOUR films too! The entry fee for the contest has been waived, so if that has been holding you up now is the time to send your clips in! Help us showcase the natural beauty of the Dan River basin, the thrill of paddling & cycling, and raise money for a good cause at the same time. A registration form is attached. You will receive one free ticket for each film submitted (limit 3 films per person).
Tickets to attend the film festival are now on sale for $10, all proceeds benefit river access development on the Smith, Mayo, and Dan Rivers. Come enjoy a bag of popcorn, laugh at some funny wipe-outs, and vote for your favorite video to win the grand prize!
On Sept. 6th join us at DRBA's Gear Swap for all recreational gear (paddling, cycling, fishing, camping, and hiking). Come out to buy, sell, and trade your gear. Hasn't your spouse been nagging you to clean out the garage?? Everyone who pre-registers will have the opportunity for their gear to be advertised in advance on the web prior to the event. If you are looking for a good used boat or bicycle, this is the place to find a good deal to get into a new hobby inexpensively!
Don't forget to join us at the North Bassett River Access on Sept. 7th (Labor Day) for Smith River Fest 2009. A fun filled day of paddling, live music, informational booths, and enjoying the beautiful Smith River. More details can be found at http://www.smithriverfest.com/.
See you there!
