Narrative: At Deception Pass State Park looking forward to paddling tomorrow, but nothin' to do tonight? or having trouble pitching your tarp? Come spend an hour playing with lines and knots and bends and hitches. This will be a pale imitation of Mike C.'s clinic. If you've taken Mike's class in the past, come practice stuff you already kinda learned. If you haven't taken Mike's class, perhaps this will wet your appetite. 

Meet at the HQ campsite (site number to be determined but all sites are within hollering range) or, if really bad weather, at OOPS kitchen shelter at bowman bay
