The Great Eleven Point River Float set for June 29

Groups and individuals are invited to join in The Great Eleven Point River Float, to be held Saturday, June 29, hosted by the Randolph County Tourism Association and sponsored by Perry Properties, LLC.

“Our goal is to see how many people we can get for a float on our county’s finest floating river,” a spokesperson said. “The winner will receive a large trophy and a $100 cash prize. Join your neighbors to float the beautiful, shady 11 Point!”

Participants are free to travel at their own pace. The prize will be awarded to the group with the most participants, not to the fastest to cover the course. There is no charge to participate.

Participants will put-in between 9 a.m. and noon on June 29. The float begins at the site of the former Woody’s Campground, four miles north of Dalton on Highway 93, and ends at the river access point at Dalton.

Participants must furnish their own boats, tubes, kayaks, or canoes—only one motorized boat allowed per group. Proper safety gear such as life preservers must accompany each vessel. Groups are responsible for their own take-out transportation at Dalton.
