Echols Dorm: Brick Wall By Side Door
Walnut Creek Park
This class is designed to teach you the very basics of white water kayaking, to prepare you for future river trips. We’ll spend 2 hours Saturday afternoon on the lake at Walnut Creek Park (~10 miles south of town) learning such skills as the wet exit, how to paddle a white water kayak, T-rescues, and the Eskimo roll. I’ll be meeting you all at the park, so will need at least 1 driver for this, so I will put everyone on the waitlist and move the first driver to sign up onto the trip list, and then the first 4 non-drivers to sign up. I can expand the trip if mutliple drivers sign up.
The plan is to meet at Echols at 2:30 (please be prompt!), get out to the park by 3, and be off the water at around 5. This should give you plenty of time to be back for the football game.
The Club provides: Boats, spray skirts, pfds, paddles, helmets, nose plugs.
You should bring: swimwear, towel, change of clothes, water, snacks.
