RIVER SAFETY & RESCUE FOR TRIPPERS

Contact me as soon as possible. We planning a river safety and rescue course with Paddler Co-op on August 7 - 8.

The course will specifically focus on the needs of paddlers who must deal with problems in remote locations with limited equipment. We think it will provide valuable skills and greater self-confidence for both trippers and playboaters.

This is a paid, professionally taught course. Amount including tax will be approximately $200. (P. S. This is a great opportunity for our WCA trip organizers to take advantage of their club educational credits!)
