hey B,
welcome to the buzz. Most of your pool sessions are going right now.
they are meyers pool, broomfeild pool, and Confluence kayaks has a pool session with DU. I am sure there are more but I don't know of them. Also, Confluence kayaks should be able to get you set up well. They have a large selection, a knowledgable staff, and tons of information about the sport. They also have rentals and demos at a reasonable rental fee. Colorado kayakers is also another web site that can help a novice boater. The buzz is your hard core creek boater/lawyer so they tend to take it out on the new people. hang in there and keep coming back to the buzz it is a great site. And with all the bickering and B.S it will realy make you laugh.
Welcome to the buzz.

PS: do not, under any circumstance post pictures of your home made nose plugs after a waterfall on the home page.
