River Valley Chapter of the ACC will hold roll sessions at the Mercy Fitness
Center at 7600 Dallas Street in Fort Smith on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of
January, February, and March. Two lanes of the pool will be available for
practice. The cost will be $5 per session for Arkansas Canoe Club members and
$8 for everyone else. (Mercy Fitness members and roll session instructors will
be admitted free). Please sign in at the front desk first; there are towels and
lockers available. Before bringing you boat into the pool area from the side
door, use the hose outside the door to wash your boats; their will be some
bleach/water mix available inside to use as well. All participants must shower
before entering the pool. We are very fortunate to be able to use the
nice facilities at the Mercy Fitness club, so please honor these requirements
and make sure that everyone follows their rules.
roll sessions are intended for boaters who own and bring their own equipment; participants
will usually allow others to try out their equipment, but please do not expect
someone to supply equipment to you for the whole night unless you have worked
that out with them. We hope to have several volunteer instructors at each
session to assist people working on their rolls.
