What we're about

Welcome to the group that paddles Ohio‘s, rivers and creeks. If you enjoy paddling moving water (and some lakes too), this is the group for you! Keep in mind that paddling in moving water involves more inherent risk than paddling still water. Because of this, some paddles may not be appropriate for new or beginner paddlers. You must read and accept our release of liability prior to joining or attending any event. Now, lets go paddling!

Countryside YMCA Roll Lessons / Practice

Countryside YMCA

Demo video link https://youtu.be/Xo7jiBI8JaQ Bill Cacciolfi and his crew are teaching rolling to up to 6 new students each week. New students pay $75 for the first session only. You learn using his equipment. After that, each session is $10, to cover the YMCA fee. For those of you that have been trained to roll with Bill Cacciolfi, the Lebanon pool will be available for kayak roll practice. Please pay Kathy Peterson the fee of $10 before putting your clean boat in the pool no earlier than 2:30 pm. Please bring exact change. The pool deck must be cleared by 5:15.  PS. This meet up is just an FYI. Signing up here does NOT give you access. Fees collected when you arrive. Bring a clean boat. I suggest letting Bill know via email if you plan to attend practice, just so he knows what to expect. Show up with a clean boat (smaller boats are easier to accommodate per Ms. Peterson), and exactly $10.00. I am posting this to get the word out to your group. Here is Bill's notice re-posted at his request. New Paddlers must contact Bill to secure a new student slot. From Bill...... Hi.
