RESERVE YOUR SEAT NOW! The next OGLP session will be held Tuesday, August 20th through Thursday, August 22nd in Lancaster, PA. Immediately following OGLP will be the 2019 PA OuttaSight/KAOS Adventure Weekend (Aug 23rd and 24th). Contact Bill Butler at Bill.Butler@TeamRiverRunner.org to attend.
The TRR OuttaSight Guide Leadership Program (OGLP) has been developed to train OuttaSight Guides with the skills and knowledge needed to train members of their own chapters to be OuttaSight Guides. It is, in essence, OuttaSight’s Train-the-Trainer program. Paddlers who complete this program will be endorsed as Guide Leaders, provided a certificate of training, and will be expected to train others in guiding principles.
To attend OGLP, contact your Chapter and/or your Regional Coordinator.

Days 4 and 5 will be spent actually planning and doing an OuttaSight / KAOS event in the local area. Veterans and community members who have low or no vision will come and you get to teach them how to kayak safely. Expect to put between 30 and 60 kayaks on the water.
Your instructors will be available for advice and to assist, but this event belongs to you!
