butch and prof on the toh contemplating plowing a lot of boatThough totally optional, we’ll spend part of the time working on some basic whitewater safety items that can make coordinating trips easier and safer, including throw ropes and hand of god rescues as well as boat plowing, paddling carrying someone else’s paddles and towing boats and people. We’ll also discuss such important concepts as don’t don’t be 2nd victim and planning your actions. The idea is give folks practice with skills that will help them coordinate/assist, especially cleaning up yard sales as occasionally happens on beginning whitewater trips.
