This just in from Marty. For more information, contact Marty directly at: [email protected]:

"Looks like the Play Pen will work out (the shallow end). We have 4 weeks - Thurs Apr 1 to 22 from 8:30-10:15. $5/person/night paid at the score table BEFORE THEY GET ON THE WATER. Folks must also sign a waiver BEFORE THEY GET ON THE WATER. Space is limited to about 15 people. The small pools (in addition to the shallow end) are better for roll teaching. All boats must be well rinsed before they are brought into the pool. There is a hose at the west end entrance for people to use."

RMOC WINTER CLASSES AND POOL TIMES 2004

GOLDEN

Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center 2005 Winter Pool Season Information

Starting January 13th, 2005 RMOC will kick off the winter pool season at the Golden Community Center. RMOC will be offering three different types of programs January through May in the pool. These will include an Introduction to Kayaking class, a Roll Tune Up program, and Open Pool times. A description of each program follows.

OPEN POOL INFORMATION
Open pool times are designed for boaters who have a complete understanding of how to safely perform a basic self rescue in flat water i.e. a wet exit. If you are not comfortable self rescuing please plan on taking an Introduction to Kayaking class offered consecutive Tuesday or Thursday nights or attending the open rolling session with a knowledgeable boater who will take the time to walk you through the basics of getting in and out of the boat above and below water.

Dates & Times
January: Every Thursday night from 7 to 9pm
February-May: Every Tuesday and Thursday night from 7 to 9pm

Cost
Open pool fee $10.00

Demo boats may be available to try at no cost. Demo boats may be used for short periods during the open time and do not include the use of a skirt or paddle.

Rental boats are available for $15 (includes pool fee) and include skirt and paddle. We have limited rental boats available please reserve ahead of time.

All Personal boats and gear need to be very clean before entering the pool.

Getting in the pool with gear
Enter the pool at the southwest corner of the building through the metal patio gate. Cross the patio, go up four stairs, and walk left into the pool. The changing rooms and shower are available.

A Kayak Instructor will be available to answer questions and help with roll practice if not involved with a scheduled class.

Making a Reservation - Call 720-933-3373
Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance for open pool times and anytime for up coming classes.

The maximum number of open boaters will be held to only 15 people per 2-hour session to eliminate crowding and to give everyone room to move around.

Walk-ins welcome if space is available.

Location
The Golden Community Center 1470 10th St, Golden Colorado 80401
Main pool on the south deck

Direction from I-70 heading west:
Take the Golden exit (Hwy 5 heading west to the Washington Ave exit. Turn left (south), go three blocks to 10th street and turn right (west). Continue up 10th until the road curves back north. At this point turn right into the parking lot of the Community Center.

At this point turn right into the parking lot of the Community Center.

INTRODUCTION TO KAYAKING CLASS
Learn the basics of kayaking and get started on your roll in the comfort of a heated pool. This four hour, two-part class will lead the beginner boater through an easy to understand progression eliminating confusion and frustration.

Participants will learn about equipment used in kayaking as well as foundation skills to safely perform wet exits. The concept of boat control and movement will be introduced along with methods of rolling a kayak. Equipment and instruction will be provided by Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center.

Fee for REI members or Golden residents is $75. The general public is $85. These prices include all equipment and entry fees into the pool.

What to bring

Other good things to have
Nose plugs (help keep the water out of the sinuses)
Swim goggles (lets you watch under water)

Bringing Kayaks

Don’t let a poor roll hold your boating back.

Meyers pool sessions

DENVER

---
The original thread:
https://mountainbuzz.com/viewtopic.php?t=320

Meyers pool is now open for the season!

I was there last Sunday.

Open pool is from 3-7 p.m. on Sundays.

The cost is $6.50 payable to the lifeguards. Although I understand this pool time is sponsored by CWWA, no one ever inquires about whether the pool users are members. I am sure everyone reading this has joined CWWA anyway or will this season.

Directions: once in Arvada get to Wadsworth and 80th. West on 80th to Carr [approx 3 blocks]. South [left] on Carr. 2 short blocks, go left into the parking lot just as the road begins to rise and turn right. It is easy to find and there are signs as well.

All boats seem to be welcome. Last week there were fiberglass squirt boats, plastic playboats, inflatable kayaks, and older RPM's. It was a great scene.

In addition to pool sessions, don't forget that Mandy's "dry land paddling" offers a great early season workout and muscle memory tune up, or a no stress introduction to Eskimo rolling.

Check it out at http://www.creativepursuits.net/kayaking.htm.
