Walnut Creek Park
Going to the Creek-a-thon??
Want to wash that rust off your roll before hitting the IV and Vs???
What: KAyak Roll in the pond.
Where: Walnut creek pond.
When: 2pm echols-> walnutROLLsess -> end 4 pm, just in time for cook out! return around 530-6pm. or find another ride with other creek goers.
Why: Kayaking is better than flyfishing (sorry charles)
Drivers have priority, I will let off you off the waitlist as soon as I find you a seat!
This session is sem-unstructured (who likes structure), providing plenty of time to practice various skills at your own pace. **There is no formal instruction.** However, there should be a few people on hand who are happy to demonstrate and provide assistance. If you want help with your roll, or boat control just ask someone, more on that below.
INTRO TO WHITEWATER KAYAKING (LITE) OPTION:
If resources permit – I’ll open it up to people who have never been in a whitewater boat, and someone will briefly teach the intro stuff: Wet exit, some paddle strokes, T-rescue, etc and then you’re on your own to paddle around, refine these skills, and scavenge for tips from other boaters. Signup regardless of your level of experience, and indicate your experience in the Q/A and if you need the intro.
CLUB PROVIDES: a ride in a vehicle, and any gear you may need.
YOU PROVIDE: Bathing suit & Towel. Some warm clothes for after!
Shoes for those muddy bottoms.
Your own personal kayaking gear if you have it –
TIMES / ATTENDANCE / COST / PAYMENTS:
Maybe the cost of entering the park? Maybe it is free still…?
!If you bail the day of, not only are you potentially depriving others of a spot, but you may be causing excess gear to be checked out and lugged around on your behalf (which is annoying at the least for no-shows.
Be at echols at 2pm
