I live close to Petersburg but joined this group for the chance to attend some of the events you offer. I expect to do more with you in the Hampton Roads area this spring and summer. Although kayaking is my only paddling sport, I vote to support the name change, since canoeists and SUP boarders may feel more inclined to join in.

Subject: [HRKayaking] Happy New Year!
I want to welcome you into a new year of paddling and fun on the water. As always this time of year, I caution everyone to be extra safe on the water. If you don't have the gear to survive a swim in sub 40 degree water, please stay off the water for a while or go buy a wetsuit! Wear your lifejacket, let someone know where you'll be paddling and when to expect you back. Paddle with people who have the capability of rescuing you if needed.
In an attempt to be more inclusive, I am considering changing the name of the meetup group from Hampton Roads Kayakers to Hampton Roads Paddlers. I'd like to hear if any of the members have any thoughts on this first though. Please let me know if you like it or don't!
Time slips by and all of a sudden a bunch of the members haven't paid their annual meetup dues. If you have let it slip by or just didn't get around to it, I would greatly appreciate it if you could catch it up sometime in the near future.
