    Please Welcome a New Ride Leader

    By Ben Slay

    We have included Michael Grube as one of the Ride Leaders for this Friday Delaware Ride. Michael recently completed COP Ride Leader Training. Before he is listed as an Official Friday Delaware Ride Co-Leader, he will be interning with us. 

    As there is a lot to learn about Ride Leading that can't be found at the basic Ride Leader Training course. And can only be obtained by putting theory into practice with a bunch of seasoned COP Hooligans that call themselves Ride Leaders

    Injured on a COP Trip or Event?
    We need to know! Please be sure to tell your trip leader so an incident report is sent to the COP office, office@outdoor-pursuits.org.

    What do we do with these reports?
    1. If you are seriously hurt, we may be able to get some excess medical coverage for your bills. (Decision lies with our insurance company.)

    2. We need to know what’s going on out there in the field. How are accidents happening? Can we do something to prevent them? Can we at least warn our participants of the risks?

    Welcome Nic Sanna, Our New Boating Activity Leader!
    Spending his formative years in the flatlands of Northern Ohio, Nic Sanna learned many lessons along the muddy banks of the mighty Sandusky River. It was here that he cultivated a desire for paddling that would ebb and flow throughout the years. After leaving his hometown to travel and find great adventure in the United States and abroad he finally settled in Columbus to attend the Ohio State University and study Landscape Architecture. Post graduation 2011, Nic started boating again and took advantage of the April K2 class to check out COP and see what this swift water thing was all about. That weekend bonds were formed between not only new friends but with the magnetism and surreal power of moving water. The following weekend checks were cashed, Ebay was surfed and the classifieds were raided for all the essential gear. Nic now resides in Clintonville with his lovely wife Courtney and paddle pup Dublin, where they somehow manage to cram half a dozen boats in their basement. (even the dog needs a boat, right?) When not on the water or lost in the woods somewhere Nic spends his days as a designer and planner for the Columbus Rec and Parks Department.
