Activity Title: Wet Exit Cert & Certifier Training
Date of Activity:  8/29/2017
Narrative: We've got a couple of people who would like to get their WEC in before the Waldo Lake event. Also, I have volunteered to become an additional WEC Certifier, and Mel has agreed to train and qualify me at this session. If there are other folks who would like to get their WEC passed or other folks who would like to help swell the ranks of the WEC Certifiers, please join us.  

Currently all of the attendees are retired so we will meet at 3 pm at the Cedaroak boat ramp. There is a nice backwater there that is good for practicing rescues and the like. If there are folks who need to work that day, I would be willing to meet later that day. Mel and I can just paddle around a bit to past the time (with anybody else who wants to join us). If you are going to come after work, just signup and tell me about what time you think you can make it.
