There is no formal lesson, but will be assisted and accompanied until comfortable. Indicate when you sign up if you're going. I am usually wearing a red cap.

How to Get There:
Event Directions:From 14 ST SW, (south of Glenmore Trail) turn west into Heritage Drive SW towards Heritage Park. Do not go into the first carpark you see.
