Ssoooo.. The Whitewater self rescue weekend is coming up in less than a month at Reliance Fly and Tackle. Normally we drive up Friday afternoon and leave camp by 8 am to begin classroom instruction on the bank of the lower Hiwassee. If you can't make it Friday night, it is possible to drive up early Saturday morning but it is NOT recommended because the day ahead is usually ...very tiring as it is. Cost will be $100 per person and there will be a $50 refund at camp. This is to insure that participants show up. The remaining $50 will cover camping and a meal on Saturday night which is usually BBQ stuff provided by RFT. I will need commitments and payment from participants no later than the June club meeting. If you can't make it to the meeting, contact me and we can meet up. We have a minimum participation of 8 and a maximum of 14. Judging by the progression series and other interests, I think we will have no problem meeting this requirement. There will be a list of things to bring handed out to students. The main ingredients of this list will be: good river shoes or tennis shoes, pfd, helmet, and wetsuit. contact me with any questions or commitments. any verbal or email commitments ahead of time will be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!
