ha! funny...Is that rule #5?
About those rules...I think I'd prefer to go with the flow a little more. You know, if a bunch of gals show up, we can split up and run whatever we want. If it's just a few, then we run whatever the majority feels comfy with. And I'll try not to be too late.
It's true that the Wednesday thing is not a lesson, but don't be afraid to come if you don't know the river or something like that. I think it's a good way for ladies to meet other paddlers.
And bringing beer is good, whether you plan to swim or not.
