Time shifted to Thursday due to weather.
This year we will do this on Gun Lake to bring it closer to more people. I will get there by about 5 PM, and late comers are welcome, before about 7:00 PM. Weather will be a factor, particularly since this is a safety oriented event. So I may cancel with less than 24 hours notice.
We will demonstrate all of the following techniques, then split into groups and practice until everyone has had their fill.
• Wet Exit
• With Skirt
• Without Skirt
• PFD 101 - Finding out if you really know that PFD and how to wear it.
• Emptying water from capsized boat in deep water
• Non Assisted
• Assisted Rescue
• Scissor Method
• Cross Bow Method
I will have an extra boat to lend, and others might also.
As new information becomes available, I will append it here, so check back regularly.
Update: I moved the put in to the Allegan County park so we can get to some deeper water around Blackbird Island. Deep water makes this more realistic. Thanks to Deb Masselink, who will be our floating SAG wagon.
