Join eNRG Kayaking & Rafting lead guides for a throw bag toss challenge, and discussions on mechanical advantage systems that can be used with a throw bag.  We will talk river safety, carabiners, pulleys, and how to best use these tools to gain mechanical advantage.  This is a dryland exhibition.  Bring your throw bag if you have one, and dust off any rescue gear stashed in your gearbag to re-familiarize or familiarize with some important rescue tools.
