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 will spend a couple of hours next Wednesday (9/10) 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 will meet you at Echols (click on the link below for directions) but will not return with the group, so will need at least 1 driver for this. You will automatically get put onto the waitlist when you sign up. The first driver to sign up will get moved to the trip list, first come-first served after that. I can expand the trip if mutliple drivers sign up.
The plan is to meet at Echols at 5:00 (please be prompt!), get out to the park by 5:30, and be off the water at around 8:00.
The Club provides: Boats, spray skirts, pfds, paddles, helmets, nose plugs.
You should bring: swimwear, towel, change of clothes, water, snacks.
