!!!!Mark your calendars for the weekend of June 1 & 2, 2013 for the 2013 SLIP CLINIC!!!!
(Forms at the bottom)
The Slip Clinic is a great opportunity for beginners, practiced beginners, intermediates and youth to improve their paddling skills and techniques. It is also a great opportunity for more experienced paddlers to get involved. We are asking every experienced boater to help by instructing, assisting, safety boating or just coming out for dinner and fun on Saturday night, June 1! EVERYONE can be involved!
The clinic’s philosophy is to teach paddlers on water where they feel totally comfortable, with progression to more difficult skills and water after mastery of basic skills has been demonstrated.
The TRPC officers are coordinating the Adult Clinic this year, assisted by Roy Bartoo, Ralph Minto and Mike Whaley. Questions can be directed to Josh Fetters at firstname.lastname@example.org. All students, instructors and assistants must be members of the Three Rivers Paddling Club to participate. KHCC members are also welcome.
The adult clinic is offered to all adult members of TRPC and nonmembers of the TRPC who submit their dues and application with the 2013 SLIP CLINIC forms.
The Youth clinic will be offered for children of TRPC member families who are at least six years old. It runs concurrently with the adult clinic. Children 16 years old or older may participate in the adult 2013 SLIP CLINIC clinic.
Instructors and Assistants
Instructors and assistant instructors are needed! Remember the way you felt when someone taught you to paddle? Remember the way they cheered as you did your first wobbly eddy turn and smiled when you swam the last two rapids? Even if you haven’t taught before, you can help! We can put you with an experienced instructor. We also encourage you to participate as instructors prior to the event. All instructors must be 18 or over. You can even request a level to teach. And instructors/safety eat for free Saturday night!
This year, we are planning a Saturday evening dinner beginning around 6:00p.m. at Breakneck Campground, which is located across the road from Betsy’s Barn. Accommodations can be made to have Vegetarian Lasagna on an as requested basis. Dinner was great last year and we expect the same this year. There will be a charge of $15 per adult and $10 per child (ages 8 & under) if you want to join us. Alcoholic beverages will not be available, but BYOB. NO GLASS CONTAINERS PERMITTED! Everyone is invited to come out for dinner, even if you’re not attending the 2013 SLIP CLINIC.
- Pig Roast/ Veggie
- Vegetarian Lasagna (as requested)
- Cheese Potatoes
- Green Bean casserole
- Linguine Salad
- Salad- Ranch & Italian dressing
- Cold drinks
Once again, the Cheesemans will be providing breakfast both Saturday and Sunday morning at the campground lodge. Cost will be $7 (pay at door). This has been a big hit since it began; you will get plenty to eat. It cannot get any more convenient than this!
Camping this year will again be at Breakneck Campground located on Cheeseman Road. The cost for camping is $8 per person for the grassy or gravel sites, payable upon arrival. The 10X10 wooden decks are $15 per night, the 3-sided hut is $25 and the “deluxe” cabin with electricity is $60 per night.
The deadline for form submission will be May 18th. All forms are arranged in kits, so that each participant in clinic needs to download and completely fill out one multipage pdf file. For example the first person in a family would use either a TRPC member student registration if they will be student and are a member of TRPC or the non-member student registration if they are not a current TRPC member. The next member of the family would need an additional instructor kit if they want to be an instructor, and their child needs an additional youth clinic kit. Several of the forms can be filled in on the computer prior to printing. After printing fill in the pages which must be done manually and send the completed forms and payments in. Payment and mailing instructions are on the registration form.
