Joint GCA / AWC winter roll practice is back! Indoor pool roll sessions
will be held Mondays from 7:00 to 9:00 PM beginning Monday, January 9, and
running through the last Monday in March.  Plan to take advantage of this
great service provided by your club.  Whether you want to learn to roll,
practice your roll to stay sharp, teach a fellow paddler to roll, or work
on other techniques such as wet exits, hand rolls, deep water re-entries,
etc., the indoor heated pool is THE best place to hone these skills in the
middle of the winter.

LOCATION: We will be returning to the Warren / Holifield Boys' & Girls'
Club. The club is located at the
corner of Berne and Marion Streets near Grant Park. 

To get there, exit
I-20 at the Boulevard / Grant Park / Cyclorama exit southbound. Go about
1/2 mile to the traffic light at Berne Street — turn left.  Go about another
1/2 mile and you'll see a large brick building on the left at the corner of
Berne & Marion Streets.  Turn left. You are at the Warren Club building. 
The pool entrance is in the rear. Enter through the gate on the far end
of the building to unload boats. Once again the ACA carries our insurance
for this event, and non-ACA members will be required to sign up for an ACA
event membership at an
additional cost of $10.00 for the entire event (January thru March).  This
is in addition to the $5.00 per session paid to defray pool rental expense.
ACA members, have your ACA number available or pay for an event
membership. Louie Boulanger is our Roll Practice Coordinator.  If you have
questions about roll practice, or would like to volunteer to help, either with
instruction or with keeping track of money and waivers, call Louie at
404.373.2907. BE SURE YOUR BOAT IS CLEAN. A hose is available at
the door to rinse out river mud, old bird's nests
or cobwebs.
