Full Name: Alan and Marlene Fisher
Activity Title: Strokes and Maneuvers Workshop
Date of Activity:  5/24/2018
Narrative: We will meet at the Vancouver Lake Park at 0945, share some preliminary discussions about proper body posture and stroke mechanics, then proceed to the practice on the water. We'll focus on the usual strokes, but also spend time practicing the Bow Rudder, Stern Rudder, Hanging Draw and Sculling Draw. After a brief lunch we'll practice our skills further, playing on the water games. There is a Park entry fee of $3.00....Always fun to practice and continuously improve one's paddling efficiency as well as maneuverability .
