Clinic Dates: June 10, 2017 Registration Deadline: June 5th Lead Instructor: Tony Daniel Location: Greenbrier Campground near Alderson, WV Clinic Fee: $30 per student Class Size: Maximum of 20 WVWA members (minimum of 4) Class Status: 8 of 20 spots filled (as of 6/1/17) Students registered (and paid): Randy Parker, William Frye, Nick Waller, Terry Elswick, Jim & Jenni Johnson, Max & Freya Lauer
Clinic participants are encouraged to take the class in a whitewater boat.
Students will be separated into beginners (with little or no whitewater experience) and novices (with limited Class I and II experience).
We will work on learning basic paddling strokes, eddy turns, peel-outs, and ferries. Participants will also focus on safety and basic river reading skills.
On Sunday there will be a club trip on the Greenbrier River from Ft. Spring to Alderson. Clinic participants are encouraged to paddle on Sunday to work on their newly learned skills.
Participants will need to call the Greenbrier River Campground (304-445-2203) to make a reservation for a campsite. Tony already reserved 4 RV and 4 tent sites so say "I am with the WV whitewater group". Tony paid a deposit on the sites, but it gets paid back to him as people call and reserve sites and he wants to make sure the reserved sites are full before adding others.
You must be a member of WVWA to participate in the clinic. If you are not already a member, Click Here to join.

Nicky took the course last year but unfortunately he hasn't had a lot of time on the water since then. I'm signing him up for this year. I have all the forms filled out and will give them to you plus payment at tomorrow nights meeting if that's ok with you Chuck. I offer my serves as Safety Boater as we should have quit a few certified instructors this year and I am only certifiable....
Nicky and I should be there late Thursday evening. Would love to do fun short paddle from the put in to the camp on Friday if anyone is interested. And I'll have all my extra boats and gear too if need.
