A Wednesday Night Paddler with Chesapeake Light Craft.

A Special Wednesday Night Paddler with Chesapeake Light Craft

 

We're combining forces with the folks from Chesapeake Light Craft (CLC) for a special Wednesday Night Paddler on May 29th from Jonas Green Park near Annapolis.  Obviously this is a huge change from the way we normally do Wednesday nights.  It will be a longer drive for those who regularly attend on Wednesdays but a little bit closer for our members who live in the Annapolis area.  It will be yet another chance for members to try boats they haven't paddled before.  If you've ever thought about building your own boat you won't want to miss this one.

 

Jonas Green is going to be CLC's new location for their monthly Wednesday night demo paddles and they will have a good selection of their recreational and sea kayaks for us all to try.  I will also be bringing several of CKA's Liquid Logic Inuits which will be free to try for the evening so if you don't own a kayak this is a FANTASTIC opportunity for you.

 

The final game plan for the evening will depend on the weather and water conditions but it will not be our typical Wednesday Night out and back with a social stop in the middle format.  To give as many people as possible a chance to try out CLC's boats we don't want anyone spending a lot of time in one of the CLC boats.  There will also be non CKA members there who want to try CLC's boats and we need to be respectful of that fact.

 

I've set the start time for 5:00 PM but don't worry if you can't get there by then.  Sunset on the 29th isn't until 8:31 PM.  If you can get there by 7:00 there should still be plenty of opportunity for you to join in the fun.  I envision a situation where the usual social hour happens all night long on the beach while people take several short 10 to 15 minute paddles on their own or in small groups in the area around Jonas Green throughout the evening.

 

In between paddles you can gather round to socialize, discuss kayaks and sample some of the goodies that anyone chooses to bring although I'm hoping for even more than our usual turn out on that front for this event.  Please, if you can bring a snack to share with the group.  Our guest event host for the evening is CLC's Sales Manager, Joey.

    First time using meetup.com. I connected with a wonderful group of paddlers for a pretty good time visiting both on and off the water.

    As a meetup newbie and a wet-behind-the-ears paddler what do I need to bring tonight? I've got a boat, a pfd and a paddle but beyond that I'm stumped!

    Since we are not paddling anywhere this is a good opportunity to bring my gas grill, I will also bring hotdogs and buns.

    I was debating on cancelling since I have a lot going on tomorrow and am worried about being able to make it, but every time I check, someone has cancelled. So, I'm a maybe and will cancel if it starts filling up again. I just don't want to take a spot if there is anyone on the waitlist.

      Excuse us if we don't quite feel your pain Mike. Especially if you manage to get some paddling in while you are there.
