Get your boating gear ready for the annual BWA / Viking Summer Party. 

Location: For those that came to the Summer Party last year, it's at the same place at the campground for Ocoee Outdoors and we'll have the whole place to ourselves. Ocoee Outdoors Rafting which owns the campground is located at 1985 US-64, Benton, TN 37307 and the campground is on the left, just before you get to the rafting company. Look for the BWA or Viking banners. 

Cost: As members of the BWA or Vikings there is no charge for this event. 

Camping: The campground will be open and camping will be available starting on Thursday night and go through Sunday (No camping Sunday night) The campground is fairly primitive but there are restrooms and showers. 

What to do there: This place has something for everyone. For beginners or for those looking for a relaxing time on the water, the Hiwassee River is only a short drive away. For the more advanced, the Ocoee is just down the road. Feel like really tearing it up and seeing who's the fastest on the water, we got you covered on that too -------> On Saturday August 11th will be the 6th annual "Dick" Bradfield Downriver Race. Open to all participants, this race, honoring the memory of one of our fellow BWA boaters and a hell of a nice guy, Scott "Dick" Bradfield has become a Summer Party tradition and I encourage everyone that's up for the challenge to join in. 

Food: On Saturday, we'll be having a potluck dinner. The main course i.e. the "Meats" will be provided so everyone else is encouraged to bring a side dish or a desert worthy of sharing with your fellow boaters. Other than the Saturday night dinner, all other meals will be up to you. There are several locale restaurants in the area so finding grub shouldn't be an issue.

This is the play boat of the RMR fleet. The Phat Cat is a light, nimble, and fun. The 23-inch tubes and large cockpit make for a comfortable ride and at 51 lbs, it’s light enough to be handled by one person on and off the water. The Phat Cat is able to run what you want to run and steer clear of the places you don’t want to run.
