USAFA pool sessions??

Yo, just moved back down to the Springs, wondering if anyone knows if there are pool sessions at the Air Force Academy. If I remember correctly they used to have a kayaking club at the Academy.

Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks,
Drew

YO! USAFA has their pool sessions every tusday nights, starting at 8pm-10pm, but we usually show up around 730-745-ish. Next Tuesday is the last pool session before Christmas and new Years. Starts back up on Jan. 5th I think.

Here's the number to call, ask for the open play kayak pool session which is only $5 bucks.

Cecil there also teaches intro to kayak classes for ~$40. In the Spring and Summer, he also offers the 3 day Fast track Intro to Kayak lessons; pool, lake, and then river. Pool sessions are pretty much Year-Round here!

Number:
719-333-2940

He's also trying to sell a Black Jackson Classic Fun if you know anybody interested.

See you around maybe!

OH, and it's not with the Cadets at all, it's held at the Community Rec Center's pool.

So that's where you've been. Missing being up north again Drew? See that shit, you've been slacking for so long people think you need intro to kayak lessons man.

Also, Alex what the hell have you been up to lately? Getting on any winter Ark trips yet?

Me, Cecil, and Nick went on a kayaking road trip to AZ the weekend before Thanksgiving. We hit up Fossil Creek. ~80 degree air temps, natural hot spring water with nice warm temps, and some fun waterfalls! I'm using Cecil's Jefe in the beginning, but then at the end (~13:11 minutes) I'm using my Hero on powerhouse...ended up backwards for a bit. HAHA!

You didn't see the video?

Check it out here:


Other than that, I've just been doin the school thing and hitting up the gym. I've lost ~20 Lbs in about 2.5 months! You get any winter boatin Ark trips in yet?

Not too many good days in the Army but one of them was the day I handed them back their climbing skins and snowshoes.
