"Second Saturday Skills" paddle with tOM & friends

  • Lodi Lake

    1101 W Turner Rd, Lodi, CA (map)

    38.145645 -121.299614

  • This 2nd Sat. monthly offer is for folks that have an interest in building basic kayak skills, trouble shooting for advanced techniques, learning self/assisted rescues and/or learning to roll. I hope to instill the importance of practice and show the value of training in the few hours we get together monthly and strongly encourage participants to seek out quality formal training. This informal clinic has been a regular event for a couple of years now and there are some exciting things upcoming for 2017. I am happy to say that Helen Wilson and Mark Tozer will be coming to Lodi again this year in May. Look for more details soon. Since the training offered is informal I do not charge any fee, but instead have asked folks to make a charitable donation. I have been in touch with The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito and am proud to announce they will be the recipient organization for all donations as soon as we work out details. Stay tuned, Happy Thanksgiving!      


    See you OTW, tOM

    Tom - Thanks so much for taking the time to assist your fellow-paddlers who want (and need) to improve their skills. I attended your clinic once before, and found the comradery and general atmosphere to be enjoyable and 'inspiring'. In the same spirit of 'giving back', I just posted a paddle that I will be Leading, immediately following your clinic, at Lake Clementine. I hope you can join me!
