Pack Raft Water Polo in Bartlett Pool - Dec. 2 – 7 - 8:30 PM
I generated the idea and Jim Gonski reserved the time. Now I guess I had better recruit a pool-full of paddlers.
Games will be played with 5-paddlers per team, 2 teams at a time on the water.
Kayakers have been playing kayak polo for years so here is our chance in pack rafts. To the best of Jim’s and my knowledge this game may never have
been played before.
While the ideal would be for all paddlers to have their own boats, that will not happen. Those who own boats are encouraged to bring theirs and be
willing to let others paddle your boat when you are not in the game. Jim will provide helmets, PFDs and will have fairly short paddles (kayak length,
which we will see if they work well with the rafts, which are wider than kayaks).
Come on out as part of the inaugural pack raft water polo evening. Here is a link to kayak polo so you can see/ read a little about what the night may

If you go to http://www.meetup.com/AnchorageAdventurers/calendar/11923011 you can sing up as an Adventurer member (it’s FREE) then you can RSVP so we
have some idea of who and how many paddlers can be expected and what we may have in the way of boats.
We will see if John Evenson, the fellow who rents pack rafts in Anchorage, may be willing to bring his boats. These would probably need to be rented from John (but I have not talked with him about it yet).
