Final Notice for club event

Postby Shawn » Mon Jun 18, 2007 12:17 pm

Okay,
Sunday June 24th. James Smith, Certified ACA Instructor, will be teaching our first kayaking class.

We will cover paddle & stroke technique, boat control, roll instruction, basic water safety, self rescue, rope rescue and swimming techniques.

This will take place at Shawnee Mission Park Lake Boat Ramp. starting in the early morning around 10am. We will end around noon, and those who are interested will go out for a lunch.

In the afternoon for those interested in continuing, we will most likely be heading down to the kaw for some moving water instruction.

The Cost is $15 for a year long pass or I believe $5 for a day pass on the lake. Bring a $20 just to be sure.

Call me if you have any questions. 913-709-8155

So far I believe we have 5 people signed up.[/code]

Teri, we are meeting at 10am. Should be done by noon.

With the heat and the work we will probably be worn out by noon.

See you then.
Shawn

Appears we will have around 6 people taking the class. Looks like an even split between whitewater and recreational/tour kaykers.

I just wanted to say thanks to all who participated in yesterday's class. Was a great experience for me and I picked up a bunch of new skills thanks to James, Shawn, and Rod. I even got to paddle in a Lay-Z-Boy recliner (or was it a Corsica?)

Thanks again!
