Registration is closed

This trip is limited to members with a wet exit certification.  To successfully register you will need to sign into your OOPS member account, and your account will need to be a member of the "Wet Exit Certified" group.

Narrative: NOTE: Although part of the Trip Organizer Training/refresh program, this class will be good practice and review for any paddler.

This class will go over rescue basics: rescuer safety, rescue priorities, T-rescues and self-rescues, the hand of God and Scoop rescues, contact towing, and possibly all the rescues at once…

In addition to your boat, paddle, lunch, and helmet, we recommend you bring a spare paddle and paddle float if you have them. Wear extra layers since we may be spending more time in the water than usual.
