The Last 2011 ACBE
By Mark Nadal
The last ACBE was fun with some first timers, some old schoolers, some climbers, followed by some beers at The Pub.
This was my first year coordinating ACBE. It may have been at the Boat and Climb that Joyce convinced me to coordinate. Thanks to volunteers Jimi, Janice, Eve, and Andrew, and to the all the participants who entertained, I mean worked hard to perfect their rolls, ACBE made for a fun summer.
Check the COP calendar for the pool sessions if you want more practice. I plan to be at Alum creek on Tuesdays next summer to work on my roll, so see you then, unless I see you on the river before.
Let me know if you have any suggestions for improving ACBE next year. Some suggestions already accounted for, so no need to submit, are:
- Clearer water during the last week in August but with global warming the new whitewater is mochawater.
- An ASCI like Whitewater Park, which will be ready in 3011.
Have a great rest of the summer. See you at Gauley Fest, on the river, or at the pool.
