    This trip was a little different than others based on the training that was done. All together a good show of yakers with varying skill levels. Awesome opportunity to conduct self and assisted entries which every kayaker should be familiar with. The BBQ afterwards offered a deserved break and chance to connect with new comers and regulars.

    I paddled to and from the meetup, so I was not there for the entire event, but I do want to say everyone was very friendly and the leaders were so great and patient and informative and accommodating. Thank you so much!!!! Now that I have helped with rescue, I hope to be adventurous enough to actually do my own exit and re-entry!!!

    Hi! Will you also be teaching wet exits and entries? I don't have a skirt, but I really should learn what to do if my kayak flips. Just thought I would ask :)

    IF YOU WANT TO PARTICIPATE IN THE BBQ AFTERWARDS PLEASE MAKE SURE TO LET ME KNOW -- YES or NO . (if you haven't already) I'm collecting $5 per person participating, we will be having Hamburgers, Hot dogs, cold water and soda. I'm also thinking of pickup up coleslaw, potato salad, macaroni salad, etc... So far we have 12 participating and 8 ppl who have not responded. It's going to be a great day!!

    Hey, will there be a rain date? Last I heard they were calling for heavy thunderstorms on Sunday

    July 18, 2013

    • Chris K.

      I'm totally happy in the rain too. I'd beach for a bit though if T-storms kick in.

      July 18, 2013

    • Elizabeth L.

      For Amityville -- Looks like Saturday is the bad day. Sunday is only 10% chance of rain, Winds SW 9mph and a high of 85. I will watch but we look good :)

    Hey Theresa, most to the trips, especially Wednesday nights are good for paddlers of all skill levels. All of the experienced paddlers in this group and very patient and helpful. Everyone loves getting new people as excited to be out on the water as they are.

    I've been waiting for a "starter" trip. So glad you're having it so I can give kayaking a try. I have the feeling I'm going to love it. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
