Hi everyone, thanks for inviting me. I was also surprised to read about the "dry drowning." Never heard of that! I wonder how many cases went unchecked. I will try to get my club to go to Ginny Springs Sept. 13 to meet with the other clubs. Are any of you going? We are going kayaking July 20... still trying to get my people wet!
Welcome. I can see from Ric's comments you have experience as it relates to both medicine and aquatics. Sure would love to hear more about you. I just read about an article I have never heard before now; "Dry Drowning". Never thought such a thing could occur. Hope you can be real asset to us. God Bless Ya!!
Welcome to the site! If you have a moment see if you can comment on DAP member Marilyn Jeffcoat's page. She lives in Lexington and I believe she is trying to develop some new aquatic programs.Thanks!
