Based out of Martinsburg WV, this group's main focus will be kayaking in local creeks, rivers, and lakes....meaning areas between Brookeville, MD and Flintstone MD, and from Chambersburg, PA to Front Royal, VA. This group should appeal to anyone who enjoys flatwater kayaking and/or whitewater kayaking.

Minimum equipment required for membership is a kayak (no inflatables), a paddle, and a PFD. There is no room in this group for anyone that is not serious enough about kayaking to have already invested in this minimum equipment. Some trips will require a helmet and a skirt. Other members find paddling gloves and a bilge pump beneficial. 

After a free 14-day trial membership, you have the option of joining for a nominal $5/kayaking season (March-October). Anyone who fails to pay this nominal amount within 2 weeks following the free trial membership will be removed from the group. Group size is limited to 50 members. Active participation is recommended to gain the most from the group and to maintain your membership in the group. The Organizer will exercise the right to remove non-active members who have not attended any events to make room for other people waiting to join.

This group was created as a friendly social network of fellow kayakers; for real people wanting to form real friendships. There is zero tolerance for anyone engaging in demeaning remarks or behavior. You must post a clear photo of yourself and your real name to gain membership. Anyone not complying will be declined.

I hope all the members will use this opportunity to make this group a success by participating, leading, suggesting, and discussing what it is YOU want to do. We encourage members to lead trips to places they have enjoyed paddling before. I am happy to post trips you have planned and assign you as an event host.

Let's make this a fantastic paddling season. See ya' on the water !
