Beginners can do a fun "Golf Course run" (mellow class 2 and 3- with lots of flat water between waves) or play some more at the playground! There will be more intermediate outings like potentially a far side of Cassette or Far Side of Mountain. Maybe the advance group will want to tackle the big chute at Pelican Rapids, in which case this could be some great viewing possibilities for visitors.
Come at the museum in the morning to see what the various plans are!
