    NOTE - This event has been postponed due to Covid-19 pandemic.  If we are able to reschedule later in the year, we will make a followup announcement.
    As part of the New To Sea Kayak program, this pool session follows the Workshop (not a prerequisite) and offers the opportunity for people to actually sit in (and fall out of!) ocean kayaks in a safe and controlled environment under the watchful eyes of experienced paddlers.  This pool session offers the following opportunities:
     - Experience a capsize and how to effectively (and easily!) come out of the boat
     - How to manage a capsize while wearing a spray skirt
     - How to get back into the boat with assistance and by yourself
     - Feel the difference between various boat models and types
    You do not need a kayak or equipment to attend, but you should have water clothing more substantial than a bathing suit to prevent abrasions, especially to your legs.  There are locker rooms to change, and showers to clean up afterwards.  Water shoes (cloth or neoprene) are required - flip flop, crocks, and similar footwear are not recommended as they can get caught on the foot braces.
    Date: Saturday May 2, 2020
    Time: 1:00pm - 3:00pm
    Location: Haverhill, MA (exact location for registrants only)
    Cost: FREE!
    Registration for this pool session MUST be submitted by emailing [email protected] in order for us to manage logistics, volunteers, and equipment.  We will provide specific address and information to those who register by email.

    NSPN is excited to host Andrea Knepper of Chicago Adventure Therapy for a Zoom presentation and Q+A 
    In the summer of 2019 Andrea took a sabbatical from her role as executive director of CAT to paddle the west coast from Canada to Mexico. She will share experiences and photos from her trip with us and take questions and answers.  It should be an exciting "virtual paddle" with her and we hope many of you will join us.
    This is open to all members and a link to the Zoom meeting can be found on the NSPN Business forum. If you have questions PM me and I can also set you up individually.
