Announcing a new Meetup for Pittsburgh Kayakers (ka-"yack"-ers)!What
: Rolling class @ SRUWhen
: Thursday, October 21,[masked]:00 PMWhere
: Aebersold Recreation Center @ Slippery Rock University
Slippery Rock, PA 16057
Want to learn how to roll your kayak? Then come out with us Thursday evening for a pool class at Slippery Rock University.
Why would you want to learn to roll? Among the reasons:
- Builds self - confidence
- Improves your safety in challenging paddling situations
- Great way to cool down during summer trips
- Makes you more relaxed on the water
- Entertain others, especially land-lubbers
The class starts at 7:00 PM at the Aebersold Recreation Center (ARC) pool. The cost is $8 for a one-day pass for the ARC - the class is cheap, and the water's warm! Show up a little early to register, and to get a boat (first come, first served, they supply the gear). They use whitewater boats, but the instructor assures me that the skills are the same for touring & sea kayaks.
They hold the class once a week on staggered days. I plan on going to multiple classes to get good at it and get comfortable under water. If you're interested, you can meet me off the I-79 Zelienople exit and we can ride up together. More info at the SRU Web site
