Party with NRC at the 2014 Annual Banquet!
Nantahala Racing Club will be hosting our Annual Banquet on Saturday, August 9th at Nantahala Outdoor Center, following the first day of 2014 Junior Olympics competition. Tickets, which cost $20 for adults and $10 for kids 12 and under, cover an all-you-can-eat burrito bar, one free beer (adults 21+), entry into all activities, and one raffle ticket for a chance to win awesome prizes.
All NRC members, family, friends, paddlers and community members are invited to attend the Annual Banquet. Following on-the-water competitions and games, enjoy a banquet dinner, sample local micro-brews and dance the night away to live music on the banks of the Nantahala River. Other activities will include a keynote speaker, a benefit auction featuring items such as private instruction with World Champion Michal Smolen, a brand new Dagger Mamba, and zip line tours.
2014 has been a year of unprecedented growth for NRC. Since January, the club has seen over 200% membership growth, hosted nine whitewater competitions, executed ten unique whitewater development programs, and engaged over 460 people (including 220 youth), for a total of 2,181,780 hours spent outside!
With the support of the community, industry partners and local outfitters, NRC will continue to expand this menu of programs and events in 2015 as we work to grow a sustainable, community-oriented whitewater club that encourages engagement by youth and families of all skill levels in whitewater sport and recreation.
