    They do rolling sessions at Kent State. I know several people there that would probably be willing to set up a class just for our group. At this point it would be after the first of the year and we would probably do several 2 hour sessions. Besides Tuesdays being a problem is there any other night I should avoid. They typically have the pool 2 nights a week (One I believe is Sunday night)for Kayaking but if we have a lot of people they'll need to know in advance. They have there own boats so you won't need to bring one but they do have limits of about 10 boats so only about 7 people could take the class at a time. Please comment back and let me know if that's a viable solution for everyone interested and I will get it set up.

    Here is a link to some basic tether you can purchase by the foot. I believe Appalachian Outfitters and The Backpackers Shop carry "by the foot tether" as well - buy local and but call first to double check! http://www.nrs.com/product/1450...­ (These would make great gift giving ideas for paddlers!

    We have this posted in 2 places so I thought I would add the Date and time to this one. We will be practicing paddle strokes, wet exits, and even some rescue techniques. Kayaks, paddles, etc... will be provided. You can however bring your own gear just make sure it's clean before you put it in there pool. Christine Cancian will be lead instructor.

    Since there seams to be plenty of interest I'll contact the people I know at KSU. I'll get some details as to when and how much. Maybe get a group rate that will lower it but to be honest it probably will be very inexpensive. Give me a couple days to get back to you on the information.
