What a fantastic group of students we had!! There were three classes of beginers and all three rocked! This was my second year safety boating for Canoe U. With my schedule I can only boat the graduation weekend so I get to see the students put to use the hard learned skills from the previous classes. Our group had a great day on the Kettle today! 100% no swim run down Blueberry! 100% no swims down Mother's Delight and 100% no swims down Dragons Tooth. We stopped and seal launched them off "the rock" By time we arrived at Hell's Gate we had tired them out quite a bit. Just a few mishaps in Hell's Gate...but hey...that's Hell's Gate. Jim was hitting his combat roll! Rosie came within a hair of hitting hers!!! So close! One gentleman in Art's class had an OK roll but WOW surprise...he had a killer hand roll he learned off You Tube! So much fun! You can tell everyone of these people will be on the rivers tearing it up! Great time!
