Things Were Jumping On The Old PondIt was busy on the pond behind Rutabaga in Madison this past weekend. Greg (above) and I conducted a Kayak Progression course. This 2 day affair covers the intro to sea kayak stuff along with more advanced strokes and rescues.Then Brent conducted three one-day forward stroke clinics, each preceded by some fine harmonica playing. On top of all this, there were dozens of test paddlers trying out boats for the first time.

It was a dance, but all 3 groups stayed out of one another's way as we each did our thing. Our class was enthusiastic and caught on quickly to every thing we threw at them.Penny seemed to enjoy her first struggle with the paddle float rescue. At the end, they were all ready to cautiously take to the water in the company of others. Our numbers grow.

Paddle safe...
