A PFD (Personal Floatation Device) is required for all of our paddles. Do you have your own PFD or have acces to one?

Yep

Please tell us a little about your previous kayaking experience. It's okay if you don't have a lot of experience.

Mostly a flatwater fitness paddler. A little bit of open water paddling, no whitewater.

What kind or type of kayak(s) do you own? If you'll be renting or borrowing from a friend that's okay too. We also have rental kayaks for members to use.

A plastic P&H Capella, an Epic 18x, and a Kirton Typhoon sprint boat.

Why do you kayak? Some people paddle to relax and get away from it all outdoors, others to stay fit. The real crazies paddle just for the joy and fun of it. What's your reason?

All of the above . . . and paddlers are generally a good bunch to have a beer with at the end of the day.

What do you hope to get out of joining this group? Some people want to improve their paddling skills others just want to socialize with fellow paddlers. Is there anything special you're looking for?

I just want to paddle kayaks and tell marsupial jokes.

Introduction

Hey, is this place cool, or is it just us?

What Bill is saying about this Meetup Group

I have done several paddles with this group, and without exception, Chuck has shown excellent judgment in choosing locations, and in cancelling where conditions require (and in finding good alternate locations.) Chuck, Kimmee, and Ken make consistently make these events safe and enjoyable. Five stars.
