Get ready for Gauley season! You always paddle better in a boat that fits like a glove. The hardest part about boat outfitting is remembering to do it while your boat is dry. Then waiting 48 hours for the contact cement to cure to full strength. The solution? Schedule yourself some time to come by and get your boat right before Gauley release season starts. We’ll get set up in my carport, rain or shine, and work on putting in solid hip pads, knee blocks, and foot padding into your kayak so you have precise body movement to boat to water response. I have tools, if you and some small pieces of foam. While doing that we can discuss…
The Future Rivanna Whitewater Park! Emily Powell, Tate Huffman and myself have done a lot of legwork over the last few years talking to various stakeholders about the things that need to happen in order to make the RWWP become a reality. Check out https://www.facebook.com/RivannaPlayWave/ for more info. If you’re interested in helping move this forward, feel free to pop by. I will have another more formal meeting in the future on this subject, think of this as an overview and brainstorming session. Of special interest to the project would be anybody in the Environmental Sciences, Engineering, Architecture, Urban Planning.
Gauley season starts Friday Sept 8! We may also try to organize a club trip for the first weekend… SYOTR!
