Presentations

 5 Things I Wish Someone Told Me When I Started Kayaking
(in-person)   Bear - upstairs Sat 3:30pm-4:15pm 
(available virtually) 
It sounds easy...buy a boat, put it in the water, start paddling. Let's talk about what you need, what you don't, and more to make a paddler's first or 50th day on the water full of smiles. Come to this safe space where we'll explore all those questions that you've been afraid to ask but need to know.



 Group Leadership for Amazing Day Trips
(in-person)   Bear - upstairs Sat 4:30pm-5:15pm 
(available virtually) 
Learn the principles that experienced leaders follow to safely support groups for day trips on the water. John will focus on pre-trip planning, group and expectation management, risk assessment, and incident management. If you're looking for war stories about how Cousin Eddie got pinned on that nasty rock, this is not the place. Just practical stuff you can use to lead your first, fifth, or 100th trip.

 Perfectly Pack your Kayak for a Multi-Day Trip
