Rendezvous Registration
Opens January 12
TSRA Rendezvous
Five days of family-friendly paddling, outdoor fun and fellowship at Camp Nakanawa in Crossville, Tennessee! April 3-7, 2019
Rendezvous is TSRA's not-to-be missed annual festival and fundraiser. Camp Nakanawa, which surrounds beautiful Mayland Lake in Crossville, Tennessee, is our home base for five days of paddling area rivers and streams. Based on the weather and water levels, trips ranging from flatwater to class IV whitewater are organized and led by experienced trip leaders. This family-friendly event also features opportunities for hiking, cycling, bird watching, taking scenic drives and enjoying good old-fashioned fellowship. Silent and live auctions offer ample opportunity to go home with some new and used-but-still-useful gear, handcrafted items, art and more—while supporting TSRA’s mission of conservation, access, education and fun!
Register early for best prices and cabin choice.
Early Bird Registration Ends March 17

2018 TSRA Membership Drive
Thank you to everyone who participated in the  TSRA membership drive at the end of 2018. Star Members and 3 Star Members gave a little more than the usual $25 family/household membership, and can now flaunt their TSRA limited edition gear with pride! In total, the membership drive resulted in 6 new TSRA memberships, 32 renewing memberships, and $300+ donations to both the Jack Lyle Fund and TSRA's general fund.
The student membership level introduced during the membership drive is an ongoing option. Students only have to pay $10 for an annual membership, with a promise they will contribute four service hours to a TSRA project over the next year.
