Summer has officially arrived so lets get together and take part in an Atlanta must do. If you are unfamiliar with what Shooting the Hooch is, all you need is an inner-tube and a life jacket. We tie up our inner-tubes together and coast down the Chattahoochee River.

We will meet at 1PM at the Paces Mill National Recreation Park and carpool to Cochran Shoals and ride down to Paces Mill from there. A few things.....
- Parking will be $5.00 per vehicle so carpooling is strongly encouraged.
- It is a requirement that you have a life vest. If you do not, you can purchase a reasonably priced one either online or any sporting goods store or walmart. Park rangers can issue fines if they catch you without one.
- Please bring your own Inner tube. Those are also pretty inexpensive at any sporting goods store or walmart.
- You can bring drinks and food. However no glass bottles. ONLY cans. 

I will send out an email prior to, in order to remind everyone of these items also to provide my contact information. Please do NOT partake in any rain dancing for this weekend. Thank you Kindly.
