May 20 - Canoe Practice

The Ely Crews took advantage of a warm spring day to visit Lake Allatoona Aquatics Base and practice paddling in the wind, one and two canoe rescues, and solo recovery techniques. Scouts participating were Brian Flamm, Brian Corbett, Ian and Brennen Graessle, and Sam Francis. Kyle Corbett (Brian's brother) also joined us, along with Scouters Pete Corbett, Rick Farber, and Eric Flamm. Brian F., Ian and Brennen completed the final requirements for Canoeing Merit Badge.

Tipping the canoe over takes lots of practice...

Don't worry, we'll save you!

Brian and Sam's first attempt at a one canoe rescue...

I can see better if I stand up!
