    So I was practicing using the throw bag tonight. First throw - about a 40 footer, I aimed for the manhole cover in the middle of my cul de sac and nailed it bang on LOL - beginners luck! Anyways - looking forward to learning some more tips & techniques on throw bags on this course. Especially some tips on reloading as it's a bit of a PITA!

    So as of right now we have 8 people signed up for this course with room for more as they have more guide trainers available.

    You guys missed out - the course was a BLAST!! Heres the thread from flybc after the course: http://forum.flybc.ca/index.php?showtopic=50071&st=0&gopid=583369&#entry583369

    Here's some video I took from the 2nd day of the course:

    Note in the video you can see one of our guys flip in the Terminator rapid if you look far enough downstream! Some pretty huge water - the Thompson is a big river!
