Presentations

 Navigation 210: Beyond "Look, See, Go"

Killarney - Clarion Hotel Sun 11:30am-12:15pm 

What happens when the fog rolls in or darkness descends and you can't 'look, see, go'? Will you know what to do? Do you know how to plan for this possibility? We can't always focus on our destination and just paddle to it. Attend this discussion of what to do to prevent a possible "lost at sea" call-out. Filing a float plan, planning a crossing, basic chart and map reading, as well as how to use a compass will be covered. Come and learn some basic tips, tricks, and techniques of staying found.



 What's in Your First Aid Kit?

Killarney - Clarion Hotel Fri 4:30pm-5:15pm 

Bear - upstairs Sat 11:30am-12:15pm 

Do you carry a first aid kit when you paddle? Did you purchase one? If so, do you know what's in it and how to use all that stuff? What do you need to add to meet your needs? If you built one yourself, do you have the right stuff? Do know how to use everything? John Browning will explore first aid kits, and what he carries. John will also provide some helpful tips on first aid and backcountry medicine.
