I took a look at the Paddlefest website http://www.paddlefest.bc.ca/ to see what I might want to sign up for this year in the way of workshops.
I've done a rolling course, actually I didn't roll but I did hang upside down in my kayak and got out too. This was done on November 19, the day before John's Big Accident. I'm going to pass on that workshop, but the rope gymnastics caught my eye. Take a look at the website
And a special note to Bernie, check out the definition for Commando Kayaking, I think Paula may have the equipment, definately you and Dennis encompass the definition.
What I will do is test paddle some kayaks and check out gear.
See you in Ladysmith!
