Sunday Morning Pool Session


2007
11.11

We had a good showing at Rocky Mountain Fitness this morning. Russel, Miranda, Tyler, Troy, Paige, Lauren, Marty and I had a great time. Tyler, Troy, Russel and I were practicing hand rolls and stern stalls. They are all ahead of me on hand rolls – I’m still about 75% in the pool. Hopefully hit the gutter next weekend, but you can’t beat the pool for that warm water in the winter :-)

Here is troy in a Shooting Star, Tyler performing his ‘Turtle Swim” followed by a hand roll, and Lauren (Chuck from AlpenGlow’s daughter).

Idaho Once Again Looking to Force Kayak Registeration


2007
11.06

Gov. Butch Otter is once again trying to push a bill requiring non-motorized boater registration. This bill basically pushes the needs of power-boaters (money for access facilities) on those that rarely (if ever) use these points for access.

I have three boats, so at $20 per year I would have to pay $60 every year – and while my boating is advancing, I can only paddle one at a time… This is analogous to requiring you to license your bikes to ride on the road – which would actually make more since considering the road had to be built and the river was already there!

Read this from KayakIdaho to get an idea of what exactly is going on. Also read this AW Article which links to this from KTVB .

Then go HERE AND SIGN THE PETITION!! Or write your legislator soon!
