I've had short courses in freestyle from an instructor, and consider myself a fairly detail accomplished and very experienced paddler, but am not very well practiced on the most extreme fancier side of the sport. Regarding the symposiums, I don't really know where I would fit into the specific classes and what portions of the courses I should take that wouldn't be too basic for me.
I really like the idea of Creekin Freestyle from a practical point of view, especially if it could be taught as instruction to an instructor. I think I paddle much that way now, but could always use some refinement. Since I teach trek leader guides for the Boy Scouts annually at National Camping School, and I do introduce some of the more advanced strokes to my students, I'd like to learn more about professionally teaching these techniques.
Perhaps I'll meet with Charlie to learn more about course specifics planned for the Adirondack session this summer.
