COP Winter Roll Sessions

From COP:
COP will again be hosting roll sessions this winter at the Grove City YMCA. This year’s winter roll sessions will run on Sunday evenings 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on the following dates: December 1st, December 8, January 5th, 12th, 26th, February 2nd , 9th, March 2nd, 9th , March 30th. There will be roll sessions on Sunday mornings from 8:45am-10:45am on November November 17th, December 15, January 19th, February 16th, March 16th.

The Grove City YMCA is located at 3600 Discovery Drive, Grove City, OH 43123 (Take exit 97 off I-71S (OH-665 and London-Groveport Rd). Turn right / west at London-Groveport Rd/OH-665 (187 ft). Immediately Turn right at Haughn Rd (1.6 mi). Turn left at Orders Rd (0.4 mi). Turn left at Discovery Dr (0.2 mi.).

The charge for members is $7 per session for members and $14 for non-members. Cash or check (payable to COP) is acceptable. Payment must be made at each session for that session.

All boats must be immaculately clean, inside and out, before entry into the aquatic complex. Bringing a boat that dumps leaves and dirt into the pool jeopardizes the sessions for everyone. We were not able to conduct roll sessions this year at some prime facilities because of past practices by inconsiderate participants. Please do not plan to clean your boat at the YMCA facility.

As a safety precaution, all paddlers must wear helmets during the sessions. Also the YMCA strictly prohibits cell phone use in either the restrooms or the locker rooms (grounds for expulsion).

No seal launches are permitted for plastic boats. A few COP whitewater kayaks and paddles will usually be available free of charge at each pool session during January through March for those without boats – call Jim at the number below to confirm availability. No extra COP boats will be available at the November and December sessions – you must bring your own boat to these sessions.

For further information contact Jim Murtha ([masked], phone[masked]).

      Yep, just show up about 10 minutes before, with a clean boat. You'll have about 30-45 minutes of classroom before hitting the pool. I had a lot of fun last year and can't wait to join you this year soon. :)

    Jenn and I will not be attending this one. I've posted all of the roll sessions for this winter and hope to make it to most. Have fun and let me know how it goes.

    Guys, heed Kristin's warning with regards to an "immaculate" boat. I went last year and had a few tiny pebbles rolling around in mine. They were so small it took me about 20 minutes to find them as they just kept rolling from one end of the kayak to the other under my floats. In this case silence truly is golden, cuz there was no way they would let me enter the pool otherwise.

    A COP membership will save you lots of money on this, especially if you decide to go to a lot of them. Membership is $30 per year. Sign up online: outdoor-pursuits.org This is a great organization with a lot of expertise and they do many other things besides boating.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
