Skills this Thursday May 19th KICK OFF

Postby kayakerjnj » Tue May 17, 2016 6:05 am

It’s that time of year again when we will start our Club’s Skills Sessions

Our first Thursday is scheduled for this week, May 19th.

We host these free sessions for all who wish to participate, Club Members and those who just wish to get involved.
We have been conducting these sessions for many years now. Everyone is encouraged to take advantage of them.
The more proficient your skills are, the safer and more enjoyable your days on the water will be.

These sessions begin as early as 4 PM, and can last until sunset or until the group succumbs to the need to PPR :D (post paddle refreshment)

Here is our location we utilize in Hanson https://goo.gl/maps/3VUQ1

Our Skills Sessions are an informal and low key opportunity for all to practice in a well-supported environment of fellow paddlers – instructors.

We emphasize acquiring your safety essentials first, wet exit, self and assisted rescues etc. If you’re looking for more excitement, you can work on more advanced paddling strokes and your roll too.

There are many regulars who have worked to acquire advanced paddling skills and they often assist other people achieve their own goals.

PFD’s are a must. Nose plugs, and scuba masks help keep the pond out of your sinuses. You’ll want them if you’re practicing skills that will immerse you in the water.

The winter we had has set our warm up back a bit so the first few weeks are likely to be cool, so please bring cold water attire so you can stay warm when you're in the water.

We’re hoping for a great paddling season ahead.
Paddle with a big smile, its contagious :D

I have to go to the dump and bring home a few trailer loads of compost, mix it with what I dug out of a new garden yesterday and then fill it back into the garden. If I have anything left, I'll be there.

We're just finishing up. I don't think I'd have the energy go tip a boat over, never mind roll it back up.

I've really got to update the photo on the skills page on the website. Jordan is in this gawdawful yellow tempest, and other floaters are Steve Roberts and a pigeon smoking a pipe.
