Learn To Paddle/New Rec Season

Tomorrow night (Thursday) is the planning meeting for the August 7th TRRA Learn to Paddle Day. Please come if you can.

The new rec season begins August 2nd: spread the word to any friends who are interested in dragonboating!

A little more info on both, below, from Ben's earlier email:

Learn to Paddle – Saturday August 7
Sparked by the success of learn to row we anticipate a very active turn out of folks who want to get in kayaks and dragon boats. As this is a first time event and we know all you paddlers have some good ideas on how to get people and what to do with them we will be holding a planning meeting next Thursday, July 22nd at 6:30 at Millvale. We are looking for folks to help recruit volunteers, create flyers, distribute flyers and help with follow up. Woody Duntstan, TRRA’s Director of Marketing, will be at the meeting with Ben Ledewitz. Please RSVP benledewitz@threeriversrowing.org if you would like to attend this meeting.
 
Summer Programs 2nd Season
The next season for the Rowing, Dragon Boating & Kayak League run from August 2nd to October 8th. Many of our summer coaches are returning to college in the middle of the season and we are currently looking for new coaches to fill these positions. If you are currently coaching one of these programs and will not be able to continue for the full 2nd season or if you would like to apply to coach in one of these programs please contact Ben – benledewitz@threeriversrowing.org

Ben will need Paddlefish to steer, drum/coach, paddle stroke seat, and staff the info desk on Learn to Paddle Day (10 AM through 2 PM).

Volunteers are also needed to help set up and clean up. He'll need a couple of people Friday (around 5 PM) and Saturday morning at 9 AM for set-up work -- then a few people for 2 PM Saturday to tidy up -- and Monday (open time) for data entry.
