The Force 10 club Beginners Weekend ... Aug. 22-23/09
If you are interesting in learning how to windsurf ....then here's your chance. The Force 10 Boardsailing Club is having a Beginners weekend Aug. 22-23 at Little Bow Lake (1.5 hrs S of Calgary). Entrance to the lake is from the East side ... head for Lomond, then turn South. Easy to get to from Keho.

Little Bow is a smallish, weed free lake with sandy beaches and a sandy bottom ... works on any wind direction ... but is especially good in strong NW conditions. Great conditions for both kites and windsurfers ... the kite launches are all a little bit tight.

Keep the above weekend free so you can participate. This is your chance to promote your sport and bring some new people to the sport. Dust off your beginner equipment  bring it out and teach someone how to windsurf.
Please contact Doug Ross if you are planning to show up and let him know what equipment you can bring. He would like to have some idea how much beginner equip is going to be on site.

Here are some pics from last years fun! See you again!

 

See you on the water!
Aloha, bob
