Thursday 8/29 Kenmore Paddle & BBQ for those that have their own kayaks

Description: We will paddle at the north end of Lake Washington

It's Summer, the weather is supposed to be nice on Thursday and I'll be back from my business trip, it's time for a paddle and BBQ.

As discussed earlier with the cost of maintaining the gear, I am starting to post events separated into the ones where people borrow gear (I'll charge $10 for those) and ones where people have their own gear (those will remain free).

Lets meet for a  paddle on Lake Washington and the slough. This trip will depend on the weather. We’ll meet at Logboom Park  at 6pm for a 60-90 minute evening paddle.

This trip is for those that need to borrow, if you have your own kayak, sign up in the other paddle.

If you need to borrow a kayak sign up in:

The water is warmer this time of year and it's frequently windy, our launch and route is fairly sheltered but we still need to use our heads and our equipment. . If you are signing up in this meetup, I am assuming that you need to borrow a kayak, if you have your own, then sign up in the other event.

[b]Rating:[/b] This trip is rated ‘protected’ or SK1. A wet suit or dry suit is advised.

[b]What to bring:[/b] [*]Kayak, paddle, Paddle Float and Bilge Pump. [*]PFD,

Clothes for paddling, something that will keep you warm if damp, Kayak Shoes, [*]Change of clothes for after, towel. [*]Rain Hat [*]Lights - at least one white light e.g. headlamp (not a strobe or flashing light) to be mounted on the kayak on worn on the person. Cyalume lights work great because they still work when wet. Fasten them to your kayak with duct tape. [*]Perhaps a power bar or dried figs to munch on. [*]Sense of Humor and fun.

    I'll have the BBQ going if you want to skip the paddle and stop by the park, I'll set up a big tarp to keep you dry

      The Link above shows the address for Logboom Park in Kenmore, Don't ever use the maps in meetup, because any member of metup in any group can move the point on the map and not have it match the address.
