Celebrate spring in the Smoky Mountains with a free, family-friendly event in the Nantahala Gorge! Don’t miss the NOC 8 Ball Race and gear demos/specials at NOC’s Outfitter’s Store.
This year’s Spring Fling will feature a carnage filled 8 ball competition! Competitors will run in heats of six from the NOC Founder’s Bridge to the old highway bridge on NOC’s campus. 8 ball paddlers will do their best to slow down participants as they make their way downriver. The top competitor of each heat will compete in one final run to determine the best of the best!
Scheduled releases of the Cascades & Upper sections of the Nantahala River round out this weekend. Take a look at noc.com/events for free shuttle times, a full event schedule, and registration information!
