Thanks to the ladies who joined the SWR class this past weekend. It was great to meet all of you. I am sorry to the 2 that couldn't make it Saturday due to injury and illness. I look forward to meeting up with all of you again this summer to paddle and hang out!
We had a pretty intense class on the river on Saturday- Nick reached his goal of providing a mini epic day! Anyone that knows Waterton (it is very short)- we didn't even make it down the whole run in 6 hours on the river. Lots of scenarios one after the other- kept us on our feet and left us exhausted by the end of the day. I learned a ton of what to do and what not to do. I have had my own epic days on the river with friends and this was great to sit and talk about each scenario right after it happened and analyze what we did right and what we could have done better. There were definately some intense moments.
Anyone who is interested in organizing their own class is encouraged to do so. If you are interested and dont have a group let me know and I can work to get you together with some other people. I know there are a few of you who were interested but couldn't make it this weekend. Also, let me know if you have any questions or want more details on the class. Depending on the level of the group I believe Nick can taylor it to a specific level or crew.
Thanks again for a great weekend! Sunday topped it off for me on the Platte for river clean up - I dont think I will be paddling much in Confluence after seeing what lies along those river banks.... (OK, maybe only in flood stage...).
