Recap of the WNC River Rescue Rodeo!

On September 29, 2013, the WNC River Rescue Rodeo was held on the Tuckasegee River in Dillsboro, NC. Sponsored in part by Landmark Learning and the ACA, the event included hands-on rescue and medical scenarios, boat and equipment rescues, throw rope competitions, and a knot-tying rodeo. Teams of five came to compete from as far away as Ohio, although most of the teams were regional.  

Taking first place by a small margin was Western Carolina University, followed by the Cincinnati Paddlers in second, and Warren Wilson College in third. The winning teams took home over $1,000 worth of prizes and materials, and everyone left with small sponsor gifts and gear from the silent auction.  

Don't miss out on the fun next year--dates for the 2014 River Rescue Rodeo will be set soon with registration opening in the late winter!
