Requirements to join the trip:
Be comfortable running the Nantahala, several times, have successfully paddled Nantahala Falls, several times. Successful means dry hair or combat roll.
A solid combat roll is not required, but some rolling proficiency is recommended.
A river runner or creek boat is recommended and full flotation is mandatory.

The Pigeon is a step up from the Nantahala, but not as challenging as the Middle Ocoee. If you are preparing for your Ocoee PFD, this is a good trip to assess your skills.
