Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
To Be Determined
I am trying to get out and kayak this Saturday and make a trip that can accommodate paddlers of all levels. Beginners are those that have been in a white water kayak on flat water or those that have only been down a river a handful of times. Intermediates are those who have been down class 2-3 rivers a handful of times and are ready to step up their game. Advanced paddlers are those who are very comfortable on Class III rivers, can handle some Class IV rapids and have a solid combat roll. Please do NOT sign up unless you have taken the intro flat water class with me or have similar experience, which means you must have experience paddling a white water kayak while wearing a spray skirt and know how to wet-exit. Knowing how to T-rescue is recommended but not required. Call me if you are not sure of your qualifications, 434 296 4812 (home) 434 242 2417 (cell no reception at home).
At this moment, I don’t know where we will be paddling, all depends on where and how much rain we get this week (rain dances are a must). This trip may or may not be canceled at the last minute (day before).
**This is also a great opportunity for the intermediate and advanced paddlers who are interested in learning this section of river to lead future trips. We need more kayak trip leaders!!!
I will also try to add in a section for intermediate and advanced paddlers only, if possible.
Your name will go onto the wait-list when you join, then I will move the first driver and then add names in order of those who signed up. I’m setting the trip max to 4 people as that is the number of boats I can tote, but may expand it depending on the number of drivers and boat transporters that sign up. If you have a boat and gear and can transport it, you are automatically in.
The Club provides: Boats, gear, boat transport, (including dry tops, wetsuits, a limited selection of gloves and booties), gas for drivers.
