Flatwater Leader Training on Saturday
Posted by Erik on 6/6/2019, 5:24 am
Hi folks - the Flatwater Leader Training will be this Saturday at 10:30 at River Bend Farm, 287 Oak Street, Uxbridge, MA. We will meet at 10:30 in the conference room in the visitor center. There will be a classroom session from 10:30 to 12:00, lunch from 12:00 to 1:00, and an on-water session from 1:00 to 2:30. You can attend the classroom session, the on-water session or both. RICKA has agreed to provide pizza for lunch.
The focus of this training is on trip planning and logistics, so we will not be doing padding skills or rescue training. We will be paddling the Blackstone River, but the focus will be on scouting, identifying hazards and working as a group to deal with those hazards. Other than wading through knee-deep water, I don't expect that anyone will be getting wet.
Feel free to contact me with any questions
