Yakin' Bout Kayakin' with CKA

 

 

 

Starting April 4th, we will be beginning a new tradition!


Yakin' Bout Kayakin'

with CKA!

 

 

 

The first Thursday of each month we will be hosting an evening out to get together and talk about kayaking, equipment, possible trips ideas, or anything else we want to "yak" about!

Please join us at the Second Chance Saloon in Columbia, Maryland.  Thursdays are Happy Hour Prices all day at the Second Chance Saloon. It will be the perfect chance for us to talk and get to know each other better, or catch up with some old friends.  It is also a perfect time to talk about kayaking.  Sit down with experienced kayaks and newbies alike, to learn more about each other and the sport we all love so much.

To get directions or to find out more about the location, please visit their website at http://http://2ndchancesaloon.com/ and learn about the Second Chance Saloon:  Columbia's Home of 100 Beers.  But don't worry, they have other drinks too... maybe even some rum for the mermaid!  Hope to see you there!

If you don't want your spouse or ex to know where you're going to be, just show up... but RSVP's are appreciated.

    The first monthly Yakin" Bout Kayakin' seemed to be a hit with those who attended. The venue worked quite well despite the fact that it was karaoke night. I do think we can move the venue around a little to make it easier for people from other parts of the realm to attend. Feel free to send me suggestions on that front. Thanks for coming everyone.

    Great idea for a social get together, especially for newer members that want to come out and meet the group, learn the personality of the group, before coming out for what could potentially be an intimidating first paddle with the group. We all were there once, right? :) Thanks for organizing!!! Glad to see everyone.

    I was happy to be a part of the inaugural CKA Yakin' meetup event! I was a little worried about how strict you would be with "on the bar stool time" ;-) The Second Chance Saloon was a great choice! The karaoke caterwauling was contained to another glass enclosed section of the bar so we could see them (hilarious), but could still hear ourselves talk. The service and the food was really good. AND they had Resurrection Ale in a can (swoon)! It was so great to see all my paddlin' buds again! Thanks Chuck for setting this up. I had a great time!

      I believe technically its happy hour prices all day on Thursday. I'm cheap. It's not like the 5 star 5 dollar sign places Jake takes his group. LOL I will be there at least a little before 7 though

    Is anyone that is going to 2nd chance also going camping on 4/19 ?

    April 3, 2013

    • Bill

      Hey Chuck, I looked at the schedule, but I didn't see anything about camping on the 19th. Is this a regular planned meetup, or are we all just planning to go back to the 2nd Chance and pass out under the bar again in two weeks?

    • Chuck

      It's not a very big place Diana but I will try to have something that says CKA on or near our table(s). Look for the people having the most fun. :)

    I am going to try to make it. And I just got my wetsuit!

    April 2, 2013

    • Bill

      Chuck, do we need wetsuits for this event?

  • Edwin H.

    Going down to the ocean this weekend. Hope to make the next one.

      Edwin - NO WAY you are a native of White Hall! No true murlinner would have included a "to" in that sentence.

    I might not be able to make it this Thursday, but am looking forward to this happening on a monthly basis.

    Chuck, I enjoyed your talk last Sunday.... But I am frustrated that the meet ups are overbooked instantly. I also can't figure out how to know if there is a kayak to rent. Can you advise how to actually rent and paddle?

    March 31, 2013

    • Chuck

      The easiest thing I can tell you is that there are almost always kayaks to rent. When you RSVP for a paddle there is usually a question you have to answer about whether you want to rent a boat or not.

      March 31, 2013

    • Chuck

      Right now there is a lot of pent up desire to get out and paddle and the first paddles I posted for the season filled up in 20 or 30 minutes. With the exception of the summer solstice paddle the next group I posted took more like 12 to 18 hours to fill. As we get more paddles scheduled the problem should be minimized but will probably never go away. Until the water warms up you have to have at least a wetsuit to attend paddles and I don't rent them. As cold as it has been I'm afraid the water won't be warm enough to paddle without a wetsuit until late April or early May. I hope I'm wrong.

    I have Friday off, so what the heck!

    Nice title, FYI-Thursdays its Karaoke night there and it does get loud.

    March 30, 2013

    • Amy L.

      Karaoke is mainly in the dining area. Is the bar area as loud Hal? I have been before during Karaoke, but didn't stay long. I know Jenny Friedman's Meetup goes every month for Karaoke. She may be able to shed light on the sound and large crowd (if there's one).

      March 30, 2013

    • hal

      There are 2 other meetup groups that meet there on the 1rst Thursday of the month for karaoke. Dont know if its loud in the bar area but its a small place....That place has good prices...$1 Naty Bos in a can.....Whats that Willy Nelson song....Cant wait to get back on the River again

      March 31, 2013

  • Cassie

    I don't need a wet suit, I don't need a kayak, I don't need to be having a good day(got back and neck issues), and, most importantly, I don't need to worry about showing up. Awesome. I'm in. I can handle this one. Thanks Chuck.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
