Mark your calendars for the following Demo nights!
Feb 21st – Outside World
March 6th – Nantahala Outdoor Center
We are very happy that The Outside World and Nantahala Outdoor Center are bringing an assortment of kayaks to GCA’s Peachtree City Roll Practice at Kedron Aquatic Center. This is a great opportunity to try out a new or different boat in a warm indoor pool.
Please arrive at the facility early (about 4:30 pm) to fill out paperwork and be ready to go at 5 pm when the pool becomes available for our use. Your friendly neighborhood roll practice coordinator, Lisa Haskell, would also like to be able to get in the pool for a practice session!
Please be sure that your boat is clean so that we don’t mess up the pool. There is no hose available at the pool so you will need to clean your boat before you arrive.
The details will be the same as last year. The cost per session will be $6 for GCA members and $10 for non-members. You will also need ACA insurance which is an additional $5 unless you are an ACA member. To get credit for ACA membership you will need to have your ACA number available for me to put on the waiver form.
This is a very nice, large facility. It is large enough to bring your canoe or sea kayak to roll and still leave plenty of room for other people. The water and facility are heated but aren’t hot in my opinion. Some people roll in just a rash guard but I am usually too cool that way. If you get cold easily you might want to bring a couple of layers with you the first time until you have an opportunity to see how the temperature works for you. There are nice changing rooms with showers for after roll practice.
Many times a group of us will go to Mellow Mushroom afterwards for dinner. You are all welcome to join us.
