Anyone up for roll practice? or union chutes?

I have free time this week and would like to get out to the lake or union...
as for rolling, I would like to improve my sweep roll for combat readiness and help you out with your hip snap, or whatever I can

as for union chutes, its flowing well and tons of fun- but if you're thinking about replying to join me for a run, I gotta warn you that I'm a beginner and might swim on you...

Hey Carrie,

Saw that you called, and I was on the other line....I get bad reception where I'm at. Was wondering if you would be interested in a lake session tomorrow? Man, would love to go today but too swamped with work and baby stuff

Let me know.

Daisy

I can meet you at a lake or union this afternoon. I get off work at two PM and need to grab my boat and could be at the lake or union by 4. You up for that?

Me and another are going to Golden PP this afternoon (Tuesday 8/3). Likely arrive by 4:30-4:45p. Will run until dark. Tomorrow, I'll probably do Union Chutes around 5p-ish. (Water permitting.)

Union chutes is one of the toughest places to learn to roll at medium and high water because of the swirling eddies. That's where you turn a good roll into a great roll.

Also, a swimmer without pfd died there a few years ago by getting trapped in the pool below the Hollywood wave.
