You might not like what I'll going to tell you, but here's the skinny on pool time. Someone needs to rent the pool. That's the real deal. The community centers, YMCA, colleges, local pools all get paid up front. Someone is footing the bill, so kayakers can have their winter pool sessions. It's either a club, or a shop, of it's a school group- but someone has thrown down the money first. Then it is promoted to fill enough spaces so that the person who rented the pool can get their money back, or if your lucky which is very rare to make a few bucks. The idea is that the people using the pool will remember who provided the place for them and those people will come shop in our stores.
Look around and see if you can join a paddling clubs, or see if any school programs have anything going that you might be ablt to get involved with. Those might be your best options.
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.
