I'm just hoping for 30-45 minutes while everyone is showing up for boatball. If we could do this 3 or 4 times prior to whitewater school, this will provide everyone the stroke vocabulary so that you go into whitewater school prepared to really work hard in your class to fine tune, build it up and get your technique solid.

For each session, we'll go through some fundamentals and then just give everyone some time to practice, discuss and work it out. No stress, working with everyone at their own level. Others will lkely show up to share their perspective on technique and strokes too... :poke2:

I will miss the season opener for the first time since the inception of boatball. I will count on my team mates from last seasons world cup champion team to continue to dominate the river. Have fun. See you later in the season.

I screwed up my calendar... as I was told early on, watch out because your kayaking might not be good for your marriage.

Well, I know what I love and what I really love.

My wife's birthday is TODAY so I really need, no WANT! to be with her... and I was really looking forward to a good paddle.

I'll be out next week for sure.

Tom Burroughs will be out to JumpStart this week though and I hear he's not too shabby of a kayaker!
