Camanche Lake North Shore Primitive Area.

Club equipment will be available June 8, & 22, July 6, & 20, August 3, 17, & 31, September 7 & 21.
Alternate Wednesdays are also available for practice using your own equipment only beginning June 15.


Due to safety considerations, you may not practice alone during our contracted scheduled dates and times. All practice spots must be reserved ahead; even on days you are bringing your own equipment. There are no “drop ins” allowed. Time slots are 30 minutes each beginning at 9AM. Each member is allocated two 30 minute time slots per week. If possible, please try to fill the 9AM to 1PM slots first and try to sign up as close to other previously reserved spots to ensure there are plenty of us to help each other.
