"Second Saturday Skills" paddle with tOM & friends

  • Lodi Lake

    1101 W Turner Rd, Lodi, CA (map)

  • This 2nd Sat. monthly offer is for folks that have an interest in building kayak skills as well as learning self/assisted rescues and learning to roll. I have been offering this over the last few months twice a month in preparation for Helen Wilson's upcoming training,(which may be an annual event), and have been asked to continue it. Since all the help I'm offering is informal instruction it is free of charge; I am donating my time for the good of the sport and safety of those getting into it,(though I urge folks to find additional training as well). However, I will ask that anyone that comes and decides to continue attending make a charitable donation of time, resource or money in exchange for what they receive. The training & practice sessions will go on rain or shine, only thunderstorms will be reason for cancelation. I will reserve the option of rescheduling in the case of conflicts with my personal calendar and may have occasion to have a well qualified guest leader fill in for me in case of my absence, (I may have an emergency surf session that needs my attention). Observers are welcome, participants should be ready for immersion, (nose plugs, goggles & whatever else you want to practice with), all should be wearing a PFD. Please bring a good ready to learn attitude and be prepared to leave your ego at the dock. Those that show up repeatedly and can show that they have practiced will receive more attention. If I repeatedly cover the same thing because you have not practiced I will not spend my time on you. If anyone is unhappy with what I'm sharing they are welcome to a full refund of what they paid me,(excluding charitable donations).

    See you OTW, tOM
