Meet at the Deep Lake/Millersylvannia State Park boat launch at 1pm.  Aim to be on-water by 1:30pm.   We will probably be done by 3:30pm but participants can leave when they desire.  We will always be within 10 minutes of the boat launch.

Be prepared to get wet by wearing appropriate immersion gear.  Water temperature varies considerably depending on air temps over the preceding few days.  Come with basic knowledge of the skills you want to practice.  There will be no formal instruction but many people will be focusing on "wet" activities such as rolling, bracing, and rescue practice.  We will provide structure, safety, and support.  This activity is appropriate for all skill levels
