http://www.Steepcreeks.com is hosting the 3rd annual TVF competition this March......
The guidelines are simple, drop the most Total Vertical Feet during the month. Competitors use 12 days during the entire month of March to rack up earnings for their team. Competition begins sun-up March 1st and ends sun-down March 31st. The competition was envisioned by Steepcreeks.com a little over 5 years ago and 3 years ago the first competition was hosted. Through the years a bit of tweaking, faithful competitors, faithful sponsors, and hard work a format customized specifically for the terrain of the Southeast and water availability. The competition is shedding light on a unique window in the sport of creekboating. SE creekers running from something, blazing as fast as possible down their local gnar, protecting and maintaining the integrity of creekings hidden arenas. In the first two years of TVF teams have knocked out TWENTY plus laps on the Tellico ledges in a single day, teams paddling throughout the entire night to gain more TVF, and competitors training for the event by running TEN laps on the Green Narrows in a single day! Some competitors are using TVF as a platform to raise money for charities through seeking pledges of $.01 per v.f. dropped. The competition has two categories for competitors to enter. Sik Birds, for creekers whose paddling vessles disappeared beneath them quite some time ago (Be the Ball), and Young Lions for paddlers who don't feel comfortable in an arena with paddlers looking to execute 5,000+ feet in a day. Join the competitors for a fun Award Ceremony held at the NOC's new venue on the Nantahala River. The Award ceremony details will be finalized and announced at the beginning of March. Everyone is welcome, tons of prizes and cash will be awarded, good times will be had, and the central location to the SE will be a perfect springboard for chasing rain.
