Winter Roll Sessions are Just Around the Corner
The time is fast approaching for the winter roll sessions. They will begin this year in January so watch the forum for details and make plans to come out and get under your boat! The best way to develop boating skill is to start with a solid foundation and that means work on that roll. If you are already a solid boater then come out and help teach and inspire new boaters in the club. The BWA roll sessions do a lot to help our club refuel with new boater energy so make plans to come out and have some fun in the pool. You can roll indoors in January and then skip rolling on the river until spring!

November/December Bowlines
The latest issue of Bowlines is out and you will not be able to stop reading once you get started. Check it out here.
