Meetup Description: Hey it's summer and time for a paddle and BBQ.
While I've moved to San Diego, I'm in town this weekend so it's time for a Paddle, BBQ and a bit of dancing.
We'll have loaner kayaks replete with life jackets and paddles for about 26 people. I will bump up the RSVP count to allow anyone who is bringing their own kayak to join us.
I'll be flying in Thursday night, landing time 3pm , and could use a ride up from SeaTac if it works for someone to pick me up.
I could use help loading boats at about 2:30 at my house so email me [address removed] if you can help.
We will put in at Tracy Owens Park also known as Logboom Park in Kenmore. It's just below the intersection of Hwy 522 and 61st Ave NE.
We'll go over some safety stuff and then head out for a paddle to get to know each other, see some wildlife (beaver, turtle, blue herons, etc.) Paddling makes you hungry so we'll have a potluck BBQ afterwards.
What to bring:
o Prepare to get wet, You might want to bring a towel and change of clothes.
o Water bottle. There's water and restrooms at the park.
o Refreshments and snacks for afterwards
o Your sense of adventure and fun
o Headlamp if you have one - for paddling back after dark if the group decides they want to. Might come in handy for the BBQ too.
In the RSVP let me know if you need to borrow a boat or if you'll be bringing your own.
I will be doing some boat repairs prior to the paddle to address the listed problems.
So far I am bringing kayaks for the following people - if you need to borrow and don't see your name on the list - add "need to borrow" to your RSVP and make sure your RSVP is a "Yes". Here are the boat assignments so far.
Who Kayak Single
Saul Orange Necky Tesla Single
There are Seven tandems. If you want to share a boat with someone, please specify with whom you are partnering or that you're looking for a partner in the RSVP comment.
If you decide not to show up, please email me, or change your RSVP or even phone me at least 3 hours before the launch. No shows for borrowed boats are a headache since that means we delay launch while someone drives the empty boat(s) back to my house - can't leave them on the trailer or they may find a new home while we're out paddling, and towing empty boats while we paddle isn't that much fun.
I'm sure all of you will have a fun paddle.
