SWR for Rafters- May 3rd/4th

Due to lot's of interest, I have scheduled a Swiftwater Rescue Class for Rafters. It will be on the front range, the dates are May 3rd and 4th. We have an instructor who is well versed in the specific needs of rafters. This course will be focused toward private rafters, not commercial. There will be no certification given, just an abundance of knowledge. It should be a fun class and you will learn a lot. Our instructor is very experienced and overly certified to teach this course.

Please email or call me for further details including cost and specific location

Does one need to be a class III rafter or can a beginner benefit from this class?

Beginner rafters are welcome.

Also, kayakers who boat with rafters a lot will benefit from this class.

Tubers need not apply

Tubers should go to the Kayak class.

Anyone remember seeing the tubers run clean lines at Gore Rapid a couple years ago? Or saw the same guys running Blackrock, including Rigor, and the Big South? One of those guys in now going to the US Olympic trials in swimming for the 100 back. I'm road tripping to Omaha at the end of June to watch. Kayakers, including those that aren't good enough to follow the tuber's lines, are welcome to join in the caravan.
