Metro Hooch Take Out - Paces Mill

Have you ever thought about what happens on the river after you break or lose your paddle? Are you out running rivers with a pair of hand paddles in your boat for back up but you’ve never used them? Have you ever wondered what the “flipper” side of paddling is all about? This is your chance to get answers!

Join Lisa Haskell and Jim Tebbel on the Metro Hooch on Sunday, September 17th at 1:00 pm for a hand paddling clinic. Come on out and get a feel for how they work, what is different and what is the same. Get tips to make learning to use your hand paddles easier. If you have  your own hand paddles, bring them along. We will have a few extra pairs of hand paddles available if you don’t have your own but you need to let us know if you want to borrow a pair. We don’t want to end up without enough sets of paddles. As always, dress for the water and weather and bring snacks/something to drink. For this class you might want to consider gloves if it is cool – your hands will be in the water much more than usual.
If you don’t have a current ACA membership number, please bring $5 for the ACA insurance.
