Thanks Jim and Corrine for the great party spot..
Yeah i couldnt read the numbers on the mailbox but with a bit of help we finally got there.
I wished i could have shown you all a few more techniques of rescue.but the time is limited and the most basic of them all most of all (paddle float re-entry) you did OK with.
The heel hook assisted re-entry was tried with a few and that went great also.. so many more to learn and keep practising..we are now going to hit the ocean in what i call good weather and sea conditions..if it gets bad, i hope the practice comes back to help you if the conditions turn bad..yes at times good weather ends in bad weather on the return trip totally unpredicted...be ready.. Thanks Everyone for making this a great event

First timer with the Meetup group. It was more difficult to get back into my kayak than I had imagined. I've used and mastered the hook and strap 2 person / 2 kayak rescue but this was much more difficult. I wish I weighed 125 lbs. I'm glad Tom Bedard talked me into joining the group. I look forward to the next paddle. Thanks, Jerry Imhoff

Hi Amy and Everyone,
I will bring you a free cooler and ice packs (some frozen and some not) since i have too many of them and if someone can make use of them, good... If anyone else also needs some ice packs for any of our events - let me know..
I use lots of them to keep me COOL since im so HOT.. ;-)
