Brews, Boats & BBQ for Better Rivers

  • SweetWater Brewing Company (map)

Join Georgia River Network (GRN) for our 2nd Annual ‘Brews, Boats and BBQ for Better Rivers’ – a kickoff paddle party and GRN fundraiser!

This fundraiser is a pre-season gathering of paddlers from all over Georgia at SweetWater Brewery. We invite paddlers of all skill levels and disciplines, as well as those who have never paddled but are interested in this wonderful sport. Come meet GRN staff members and learn about our mission and upcoming events. This is also a great opportunity to meet new paddling friends and renew old friendships! Representatives from several paddling groups across Georgia will be there. We will also be honoring our 14 in 2014 finishers, which are individuals who took on GRN’s challenge to participate in 14 water-related events in 2014. So, come on out and mingle with us! Note: All attendees must be 21 years of age or older as of February 8, 2015.

Tickets can be purchased here:

AND… 1 complimentary raffle ticket entry to win a sit-on-top Jackson Riviera kayak from our awesome event sponsor Outside World Outfitters
