2014 Frontrange paddling crew needed. Or, lets get one started here!!!

Hi all,
I moved to CO about 18 months ago and my paddling/practice buddy moved out of state after last season. I still need to master the roll and am not quite ready for class 4 yet imo. Once I am able to nail the roll in class 3 consistently, that could change and that might be this season.

I am also looking to attend the CW training camp in May to improve my skills and would love to hit up open pool sessions at Meyers in Arvada or in Golden for practice. I live near 285/Simms so I have pretty easy access from Denver to Golden to Boulder for practice.

If anyone is looking for another boater for day trips near the front range on weekends, let me know by responding to this thread. I am talking about the Poudre, S. Platte, Arkansas and Colorado Rivers among others.

Also, if there are other beginners out there or people new to Colorado, I am happy to paddle with you and even show you what I already know about the roll on both flat water or at golden play park (once water levels are sufficient). I can hit it everytime in flat water, ah but that isn't an option on the river lol.

Hey Steven, welcome to Colorado! I'd be happy to paddle with you on any of those runs. I'm always at the pool and I'll be at training camp. Hit me up any time you want to do a run!

Feel free to hit me up via private message anytime you are looking for a paddling partner on the Ark. I've got a good crew, but still end up paddling solo a lot. Be happy to show you any stretches of the river you aren't familiar with.

You can PM me for a trip to the Ark as well. Browns is my playground.
