We have cash prizes as high as $250 as well as many other great items, so this is a very good opportunity to win some cash or something nice and have a great time floating the river (Sprewell Bluff to the 36 Bridge). The float takes between 2-4 hours depending on how you choose to spend your afternoon.



Canoe rentals (2 people, 2 paddles) and transportation are also available for $50 through a special 11:00 a.m. shuttle at the Flint River Outdoor Center. If you have your own canoe and want to use the shuttle drop off, you can catch the 11:00 a.m. shuttle for $25 (2 people/2 kayaks or 2 people/1 large canoe). We highly recommend this for the convenience factor!

We had something like that here in the 70's on the Oconee. My brothers and sister got to go, but I was the youngest and mama wouldn't let me.
