Any Instructor types willing to halp with training group members in kayaking skill sessions ?

The Sea Kayaking group continues to grow and we continue to get a lot of new
With our having pretty much burned out Bob on teaching meetup people, we need someone singular or plural, to step forward and assist or lead training sessions.
I can provide kayaks for 10-12 people if we do this on Monday or Wednesday evenings around 6:30pm in the north end (since I need to head home and get boats after work, I'd like it close to my house, so Kenmore works best, and Magnusson Park is workable but may be a challenge on certain days).
I'm thinking we need to cover a lot of basics like paddle strokes, including ruddering and turning strokes, leans, braces, sculling, self rescue including rolling and since my skills are at best, marginal in some of these areas, I'm asking for some of you to step forward and volunteer to help out. I'm open to setting these up as "pay" sessions with the "instructor" keeping the money or refunding it to those that pass, or whatever you as an instructor think is fair.
If you think that you can help with this, shoot me an email:
