Congratulations to 3 new Canoe Instructors

Post by Walter Felton » Mon Apr 22, 2013 5:20 pm

Congratulations to the ACC’s three new American Canoe Association canoe instructors. Heather Huckeba, Kristian Underwood, and Chris Handley all successfully completed the extensive process to become certified ACA canoe instructors. All 3 worked hard during the process which included 2 very long weekends of work along with lots of practice and paperwork between the two weekends.

An additional thanks goes to the ACC support team which included Paul Shepherd, Steve Shepherd, T Yamashita, Arthur Bowie, and Marcell Jones during the IDW and then Arthur and Marcell during the ICE. Gayle provided the food for the ICE which took a huge load off of the candidates and staff.

This level of support and dedication to the sport, by both instructor candidates and staff, is what makes the ACC instructor program one of the most successful in the nation. I am truly proud to be a part of that program.

That's great three more open boats with single blades. May you bring the sport to many others. BOB
