Categories one and two are getting together in the Chilson pool twice over the next few weeks, giving some a chance to show off their gear, others to try out the sport for themselves.
Members are bringing several types of float tubes and fins to the pool from 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5 and 1 to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 19, ensuring everyone will get personal attention and help. If you're going (unless you're like John Brady, who says he's coming, but just wants to watch), bring your swim suit and a towel. Unless you have a Silver Sneaker or Chilson Recreation Center membership, the cost is $3.25, which covers the cost of admission to Chilson for the day. When we venture out onto a local lake this spring you'll also want a life jacket and chest waders, but Chilson promises its pool is both shallow and warm.
The goal is to create a cadre of knowedgeable, crafty float tubers for trips this spring, summer and fall to Front Range and high mountain lakes. Maybe we'll call ourselves the Loveland Fishing Club Float Tube Flotilla.
