> Here is my July offering for Tennessee... Seinerama 2
> The Pot Point House, located on the Tennessee River near Chattanooga, is
> owned by the Tennessee River Gorge Trust. They have it available for a 3 Day
> Weekend; Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights on July 6, 7 & 8. It's a clean,
> modernized, log house in a beautiful, rustic setting and hosts a scenic
> overview of the river. The field activities will be similiar to the first Seinerama
> i hosted back in April of 2002 with an extra day and 2 nights thrown in. The
> Fall 2002 issue of American Currents featured a report of it written by Steve
> Ellis and myself, or here it is online with color pics...
> Thursday will be our arrival day / afternoon and settling in to the house.
> Friday, our first full day, will be spent exploring the Tennessee River shoals,
> the Sequatchie River below Ketner's Mill and several sites along the Little
> Sequatchie River including some spring runs and a cave.
> Options for Saturday and Sunday could be the urban streams of Chattanooga or
> snorkeling and sampling the Conasauga and / or the Hiwassee River which is
> about an hour away.
> Potential rainy days can be spent-in-the house relaxing or a trip to the
> Tennessee Aquarium, but rain should not be much of a concern in July. In fact it
> will make seining easier and snorkeling much more comfortable.
> We will try to stop-in-the Keener's Sequatchie Valley Farm again for free
> range chicken double yolked eggs and Shitake mushrooms for our Saturday morning
> Cost for the 3 days and nights will be 100 bucks. This will cover the Pot
> House rental and i will stock plenty of provisions, drinks and road snacks.
> Any monies left over after expenses will be provided to NANFA. I could probably
> get Connie to cook another evening meal for us IF we promise to be on
> time... this time... as opposed to last time! I also might be able to talk the
> Tennesse Aquarium into some passes or better yet a behind the scenes evening tour.
> The Pot House has 2 big bunk rooms with single beds. Logistics will limit us
> to 10 people and need 5 to make it work financially. Let me know if your
> interested. This invite will also be published in the Spring American Currents
> so better get your name in the hat before it hits the newsstands! To sign up
> send $50 to Casper Cox, 1200 Dodds Avenue, Chattanooga, TN 37404. 423-624-0721
