    JRBF-Fall Mtg-Howardsville @ Howardsville, VA
    Oct 20 @ 6:30 PM

    Hey Folks,

    I hope everyone has had a great summer and is looking forward to the fall.  In the last several years, we have lost the tradition of having a fall meeting due to the fact that it was connected to the Tireless James, which was frequently canceled due to rain.  Many have expressed a desire to get back to a regular fall meeting, which has typically been more social.  
     
    With that in mind, I hope you all can make it to Howardsville on October 20.  My hope is that folks will float that day, we will have a brief meeting at 6:30 and for those who desire, camp out in the evening.  Several folks have stepped up in the last few months to say they would like to take on a more significant role in the festival, and I plan use this time to talk about how things might be structured going forward. Roger Nelson will be grilling hot dogs.  
     
    So in brief:
     
    Fall meeting/ float 10/20
    -Float from Wingina to Howardsville
    -Meeting at 6:30
    -Roger grilling hot dogs 
    -Camp out if desired
     
    Please let me know if you plan to attend so we can make sure to get enough food!
     
    Thanks, and I look forward to seeing many of you in October!

                  The James River Batteau Festival  campsite for Thursday June 20, 2019 will be at the site on the up-river side of the Slate River confluence with the James River. This site was new in 2016.

                  Please do NOT go to the old Solite Plant campsite as that area is closed off now.

                  If you are traveling from Rt. 15, continue past the old Solite plant entrance a little further just after you cross the Slate River. The entrance to the new site will be on the right.

                  Please use caution driving on this site and observe all designated markings as to what areas are available for JRBF use.
