comprensive guide to denver area roll sessions?

I sort of imagined it would be here like it used to be at least in the form of a whole bunch of people asking about where the roll sessions are and when, but i guess everybody either a) knows by now or b) is communication telepathically and only speaks in public in order to make fun of me ..
anyway anyone interested in insitigating indoor endos inform i?

Hope this is of help,
Sunday: Meyres Pool Denver, and i think some pool in Boulder
Tuesday: DU pool Richie center, and Golden Rec-center
Wednesday: CU pool (CU students only)
Thursday: Golden Rec-center
Friday: CU pool (CU students only)

These are the ones I know about but more are added throughout the off season like in Evergreen last year, plus there are even more outside the metro area, and probably several i don't know about. Occasionally you can "talk" ($) your local lifeguard or courtious rec-center staff into alowing you to goof around during some off hours. If this doesn't give you your chlorine fix, or at least totally ruin your spray skirt, check out the "retail, instruction, jobs" forum of the buzz i think i remember seeing some posts there. enjoy!

Rolling instruction experiences wanted for book

I am seeking stories of personal experiences on learning to roll. (see adjacent post today).

I especially want stories of losing and regaining the roll, of problems experienced the first time, and of fears and mental blocks that get in the way.

If anyone wants to seek comments on my behalf, feel free to print and distribute my note to one of these roll sessions. Thanks!

It would be cool if the organizations that host pool/roll sessions put them on the mountain buzz calendar as a re-occuring event.
