Meetup Description: Hey it's summer and time for a paddle
While I've moved to San Diego, I'm in town this weekend so it's time for a Paddle, before I fly back this afternoon.
We'll have loaner kayaks replete with life jackets and paddles for about 6 people (due to time constraints, I need to keep things simple so I'm keeping the headcount down, if you have your own boat join us anyway).
I woke up at 3am on Saturday morning and decided I needed to be in Seattle, home of the best people and most beautiful nature in the world, so here I am.
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.) .
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.

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.
