TRR Clinic June 2 & 3, 2007

Instructed K-1 for the TRR (Triad River Runners) annual spring clinic, starting with a classroom and pool session on Thursday May 31.

Lake session followed at Belews Lake- Piney Bluff Access on Sat. June 2.  Nice day and about 20 students overall including my group of 4.

On Sunday June 3rd, we went to Cox Chapel acess and training rapid on the New River, at Cox Chapel Va. (just NW of Sparta NC).  The day started out early morning with pouring rain, windy and a bit cold at home.  Forcast was for better weather at Cox Chapel about an 1 1/2 hour away.  While weather improved it still was overcast, dizzely, and cool all day.  After much diggin around to pull together gear to outfit the beginners in my group for the day, we worked our way up the training rapid and spent the day working on moving water skills, ferries, peel-outs, eddy turns, S-turns etc.
