18 participants are needed to make pool reservations and to make this class cost effective.
Please sign-up early!

Program cost is $50.00. Boats and gear will be available for rental at $50.00 for the entire 10 sessions and includes a beginners’ river trip on Loyalhanna Creek in March. If space is available, walk-ons will be accepted at a flat rate of $6.00 per session.

We stop after each class at a local restaurant/bar for food and beverages and talk about paddling in general. This is a great way to meet new friends and get introduced to the sport of kayaking.

All you have to do is show up, and pay the 8 dollars. No need for reservations. They have boats, paddles, etc.

The university supply of spray-skirts is dwindling rapidly due to the effects of chlorine from the pool. I believe there are only 3 or 4 functioning ones left. I use the term functioning loosely. If you are planning on using university equipment, you may wish to bring along a spray-skirt.

Brook high school

Session details:
Where:                    Brooke High School Swimming Pool
Brooke High School is located north of Wellsburg just before getting to Follansbee.  
Turn at the light by the Dollar General Store – signs for Brooke HS are prevalent.
Drop boats near the main entrance to the pool –  stay on walks, don’t drag in any unnecessary dirt..  Details of how best to enter will be available at the door.

Be sure your equipment is clean. Stage on the pool deck, then get ready in the locker rooms.

Day / Time
Starting: Tuesday, February 4, 2014; then every Tuesday evening – 7:30 PM to 9 PM 

Sessions: Feb 4, 11, 18, 25; Mar 4, 11, 18, 25 Apr 1, 8, 15, longer as needed.  Ten (10) sessions total (estimate one or more cancel from above due to weather or breaks)
Date changes subject to occur
Brooke Spring Break is around 4/2, so that session may not happen.

Cost / Funds:
 $20 for the season or $5 per session
But we also need to apply for American Canoe Assoc. (ACA) member insurance (same as the TRPC clinics).
This cost is $15 for the season or $5 per session.

 (we will have to pay two (2) lifeguards at $10/hour, so please try to attend and pay for the season)
Total season cost then would be $35.  Buying a season pass is the best value and highly encouraged for administration of this plan.

Equipment: Having your own equipment is ideal.  
If you are a beginner, let me know and I’ll work on getting something for you to use or rent.

 Same as always, practice your skills then seek out those needing help.

Art Bertol                   304-527-4855 e-mail:

 1. Two life guards will be on duty for all sessions. Our fees will be used to help pay this cost. 
2. Each of us must subscribe to ACA member insurance (unless you are already a member) then sign a release form – attached below -
please bring your completed form when you arrive.
3. Be sure all your equipment is clean. Bring gear as there may be need. We are working on possible boat storage also. 
4. NOTE:   Please try to keep any and all dirt out of the pool and off the pool deck.
