May 9th City of Athens Relay for Life Bass Fishing Tournament Canceled
The City of Athens Relay for Life Team has made the difficult decision to cancel this year's Relay for Life Bass Fishing Tournament on May 9. The team had concerns for the safety of boaters, and did not want to put anyone at risk.
In addition to COVID-19 restrictions and concerns, TVA has issued a River Traffic Alert for May 8-10 at River MM 297.5 due to transmission line work.
TVA asks those who do enjoy the river this week to note: Transmission and helicopter personnel will be working during daylight hours. Safety patrol boats will be present and monitoring channels 16 and 13. For safety, watercraft should avoid the area or take extra safety precautions and go slowly.
Athens-Limestone County Tourism is providing a collection of press releases and information regarding closures, modified hours of operation, and other information about Covid-19 and its impacts via this blog.
