First of all, thanks to the more than 130 people who came out to Southern Appalachian Brewery last night to help us enjoy the adventure films and raise money to support RiverLink and Our Voice. It was a fantastic evening, and we succeeded in raising over $1,800 for these two excellent causes.
And thank you to our business partners who supported the event and made it better at every turn. Southern Appalachian Brewery were great hosts, Diamond Brand Outdoors provided awesome door prizes that brightened the evening, and Legacy Paddlesports/LiquidLogic Kayaks gave away a new boat to one very happy Derek Watson. Congratulations, Derek!
And finally thanks to Outdoor Sports Marketing who helped produce much of the video content for the evening, and thanks to Team Scum who were busy in the back of the room turning out some very sweet t-shirts to give away. All talents combined to make for a very fun evening, and we’re grateful.
As promised, here are links to the online versions of most of the films that were screened last night. We hope you enjoyed the movies at the bar, and we hope you’ll take time to enjoy them again here. Stay tuned to RapidTransitVideo.com for more adventures in the near future.

All these are good but the Smokies one is especially near and dear to my heart! Keep up the good work!
