Winter Roll Sessions
Winter roll sessions are in full swing so get out and practice the must have skill for elevating your boating. Now is the perfect time so check the forum weekly for details and make plans to come out and get under your boat! Roll roll roll your boat gently around the pool. If you are already a solid boater 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 now and then skip rolling on the river until after spring!

National Paddling Film Festival
The 2015 National Paddling Film Festival in Frankfort Ky was on February 20th and 21st. Even with the insane weather this was another successful event celebrating the sport that we all love. Check out the NPFF website here. Click on the History menu item to see this years winners.
