Paddling classes offered at Kennedy

June 12, 2011
Messenger News

A paddling class will be held Saturday at Kennedy Park, with certified instructors. Class options are:

"Introduction to Paddling," 9 a.m. to noon, for $10. This course will help participants feel comfortable with a boat and paddle, will introduce basic paddle strokes and cover paddling safety.

"Introduction to Moving Water" will be 1 to 4 p.m., at a cost of $20. This advanced class targets people with some paddling experience and those who have been through a beginner paddling class. Paddlers will be introduced to reading river features and using currents for maneuvers such as ferries, eddy turns and peel outs. Participants likely will get wet.

Preregistration is required by Wednesday, and should say whether the canoe or kayak is the choice of vessel to use. Participants are encouraged to bring their own vessels, but rentals will be an option.

To reserve a spot, contact Karen Hansen at 576-4258.
