But… what a treat!

Special Guest Coach, Olympic Gold Medalist, Joe Jacobi will be at the Ray McLain Training Camp beginning on Wednesday through Sunday, June 24 to June 28. Joe is well known for promoting “Olympic Values” and the best attributes of canoeing and kayaking through coaching, instruction, and professional presentations to all audiences on and off the river. Joe also was the Color Analyst for NBC Olympics for both Whitewater and Flatwater Canoe/Kayak at the Olympic Games in Beijing. He called over 20 Olympic races over 11 days of canoe/kayak competition with two different production teams. Also provided commentary and stand-ups for a one-hour broadcast of the Olympic Whitewater Trials on MSNBC.

Joe will also be onsite for Wausau Whitewater Weekend and we have excitement coming up for that. Details to follow but Joe is promising to teach us all about Slalom Survivor and make it part of the weekend schedule.

There is a limit on participation and the camp is capped at 30 participants. Right now there are 8 registered. The camp is for any age but anyone under 18 must have a chaperone. Lodging is provided but you may also stay at one of our many area hotels. Go there now and check out your options!
