    Great class. Very informative and I learned a great deal! Can't wait for more classes. I am much better prepared. Also, everyone there did a great job and feel confident everyone could work together to lead many great trips in the future!

    Would my metal knee prevent my being successful in this course?

    Great class, I can't believe how much we learned and how much that is still left to be learned.

    I found this training enjoyable and challenging! I reccomend that you work on your paddling skills and both self and assisted rescues before attending. Otherwise get ready to be challenged and learn alot.

    Is there any further cost for this training? The details say you need to be an ACA member.

    Do any of you have plans or recommendations for a certain hotel?

      I think the "member" reference was for meetup members. I am not sure you have to be a ACA member but I signed up for the "Introductory"­ ACA membership. It is for 6 months and was $15.00. An anual membership for an individual is $40. There is a $50.00 fee for the class and that goes to Sea Kayak Carolina. You can call them and they will process it on the phone. Scott is fabulous. (Just ignore his odd sense of humor., Love you Scott.) Not sure where to tell you to stay. I am staying with some friends. Tom is camping and I am not sure what Jimmy is doing. I stayed at the Fairfield Inn in North Charleston (right off Highway 26) in January and I was very impressed (even got hot cookies) but I think that would be about 20 minutes from SKC. Maybe Scott has a suggestion.

    Yes you do need to be a ACA member, the cost is minimal and if I remember correctly I thought they told me that you could even wait until you pass the course. Might want to call Sea Kayak to verify this.

    If you have any interest in this don't hesitate to call me with questions or concerns.
