PNL Presentation / Club Social - April 26, 2018 at 7:30 PM at the Guv'nor Pub

Hi All, this is a reminder that Richard Alexander will be giving the following presentation on Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 7:30 PM upstairs at the Guv'nor Pub.  Also, please note that the time is 7:30 and NOT 7:00 PM as indicated on the previous notice.

"Killing someone on a club paddle --- and other things we should probably avoid.
If you could remove all the risk from a sea kayak outing, the activity would no longer be sea kayaking.  What we do carries inherent risk.  That is one of the things that makes the activity rewarding.  The job of trip leaders (leads and sweeps) is to reduce the risk as much as possible and manage the risk that we can’t control.  Doing this is not as simple as it sounds (we all have stories to tell).  This interactive discussion is designed to help us all learn from our past experiences and become better leaders in our paddling community.  Topics include route selection, weather and sea state interpretation, leadership, group management, having difficult conversations and decision making.  

This presentation is open to all PNL members and PNL members  assisting as a paddle lead or sweep are encouraged to attend.
