    Great fun. Peter, the organizer, and his crew were gracious, personable and pretty excellent all around.

    We had a great turnout and a great morning of paddling. No one swam today and the only capsizes were on purpose. Thanks to everyone who came out.

    Is use of team gear mandatory for intro session? I have my own WW kayak (seldom used) and was looking to get it wet...

      Hi Dennis! Glad you're going to try out polo. For the games we require that you use the proper gear for safety purposes. Of course if you want to bring your boat out as well for the warmup and drills I don't see a problem with that. Sorry for the late reply. See you tomorrow!

    I just started taking rolling classes and was not having an easy time of it. So it's not necessary to know how in order to joint this particular meet up is it?

      You will have to learn how to roll eventually, but we don't require it for the beginner class. Polo is actually the best way (and motivation) to learn to roll!
