TWRA: New Boating Laws Effective July 1


    NASHVILLE — Two new laws concerning recreational boating will become effective July 1 that are hoped to help increase safety on Tennessee waters.
    As of July 1, a requirement similar to the “Move Over” law on land will go into effect. As written, the new law will require boaters to slow to no wake speed within 100 feet of a law enforcement vessel that is displaying flashing blue lights.
    Also effective July 1, there will no longer be an exemption from boating education for renters of watercraft.
    Tennessee residents born after Jan. 1, 1989 are required to pass a boater education exam administered by an approved representative of the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency in order to operate any motorized vessel over 8.5 horsepower. Out of state residents born after Jan. 1, 1989 must show proof of successful completion of a National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) approved boating safety course. Non-resident certification may be from their home state or any state issued course.
    Persons who have already made reservations or entered into contracts with marinas are encouraged to continue with their plans, but are asked to complete an approved boater education course before renting again.
    Tennessee residents born after the Jan.1, 1989 can purchase a Type 600 Exam Permit online or from any hunting and fishing license vendor for a cost of $10 and go to a testing location to take the exam or take a class. Locations for testing and for classes can be found on the TWRA website under the boating section. For study materials telephone (615) 781-6682.

American Crappie Trail officials said they could not be more excited to return to Henry County and to work with the Henry County Tourism Authority.  Spectators are invited to watch the Pre-game show with Sam Heaton and Matt Morgan then stay for weigh-in starting around 3 p. m.
The ACT is the highest paying and most prestigious crappie fishing trail in America.

The tournament will have a major economic impact in the local economy for this 2-day event. Teams will make multiple trips to the lake prior to the event.  ACT is working with anglers in the community and sponsors to develop a conservation minded trail to promote crappie fishing for Paris.

None of this would be possible without sponsors:  Lucas Oil, Protect the Harvest, B’n’M Poles, MidState Seed, Engel Coolers, Frontier Metal, General Tire, Super Clean, Abernathy’s, Rockport Rattler, Power Pole, Ranger Boats, Evinrude, RoadRunner, Charlie Brewer Slider, Mid-South Tackle, Bug Band, Rod Sox, Bobby Garland, American Angler, Skipper Jigs, Crappie Now, Driftmaster, Grizzly Jig, ProBuilt Jig

FerrySTOC9 May 17-20




May 17-20 
FerrySTOC 9
Sponsored by Paris Landing Tourism League

Bringing long distance, cross country riders to the Paris Landing area as a base for local area riding and group camping.  Meet Sport Touring and ADV  riders who are passionate and serious about their riding. We ride a little further, a little faster and a little safer than typical motorcyclists. Once again, we anticipate the arrival of riders from places as far away as California, Florida, New York and everywhere in between. Heck, we might even have some Canadians join us again!

FerrySTOC started as an idea during a trip to the Blue Ridge Gathering in the Fall of ’09, an event on the ST-owners.com calendar. (STOC=ST Owners Club is a free, internet based riding club.)  Why not have an event themed on the 4 rivers area and ride the ferries that cross those rivers?  And  ... just to play a little bit on the theme,  let’s have a Gothic based Tinkerbell fairy riding a motorcycle as our trademark. Why not bring more tourists into our local community? As time has passed, this event has grown a loyal following and expanded with suggested routes for the Adventure riders - riders who lust after gravel roads and back woods exploration in rural areas. With Land Between The Lakes  just across the river, this event brings the ADV riders together with long distance sport touring riders, all in the name of fun.


All riders are welcome, regardless of make or model. We do ask that you wear full safety gear, ride within your personal abilities and limits of safety, absolutely NO DRUGS and please, no drinks until kickstands are down for the day. It’s all in the name of fun and getting to visit new friends from around the country.


Contact Randy Collins, 731-695-8416 for more information.

Please RSVP if you plan to attend so that we can be prepared with a head count. Remember to buy local and support our Paris Landing Tourism League that is nice enough to host this event.
