FAYETTEVILLE, WV (LOOTPRESS) – Get ready for a spellbinding event as the Fayetteville Convention & Visitors Bureau hosts the “Witches & Warlocks Stand Up Paddle” on the New River this Sunday, October 29th.
This enchanting gathering is set to take place at the Tunney Hunsaker Bridge on Fayette Station Road from 9 AM to 10 AM.
Participants will embark on an otherworldly adventure, but with great power comes great responsibility. To join this coven of stand-up paddlers, attendees must take note of the following essentials.
Prior registration and signing of a waiver are mandatory. It’s essential to know how to swim and to come dressed in personal flotation devices (PFDs).
This mystical event is not suited for beginners; participants should be confident in their ability to maneuver boards amidst the river’s challenges.
As the gathering unfolds, participants will launch their boards at the upper beach of Fayette Station, all while adorned in PFDs.
The paddle will lead them approximately 500 yards upstream on the tranquil waters before returning to the beach. While it promises a leisurely paddle, it’s essential to keep in mind that the river’s current can present challenges even for those experienced in paddleboarding.
For those eager to join this enchanting voyage, it’s important to note that participation is capped at 80 attendees to comply with permit requirements.
If you’ve reserved a spot but find yourself unable to attend, please notify the organizers. This will allow others to partake in this bewitching adventure and help maintain a streamlined experience.
Additionally, carpooling is encouraged, as is utilizing the upper overflow parking area at Fayette Station.
Participants are kindly asked to unload their boards at the upper beach parking lot and then move their vehicles to the upper overflow area, ensuring everyone has the opportunity to enjoy the event fully.
Should water levels on the river be deemed too high, the event organizers will make a decision in advance to either relocate or cancel the event.
For those in need of board rentals, the Mountain Surf Paddle Sports team will be happy to assist.
