Thanks for offering to take this project on! Are you a member of SOA (Seattle Outdoor Adventures) Meetup? We do a bunch of kayak events. I'm an assistant organizer for them and I've schedule several kayak outings. We'll probably be doing an over-nighter to Blake Island pretty soon. I've been trying to get a hold of Scott for some time, but have gotten no response. Instead, Patrick and I tried to coordinate a trip through the Sea kayak meetup email list to Saddlebag island, but that just turned out to be the 2 of us attending.
One problem with the kayak meetup is there is a big discrepancy between beginners and experienced paddlers, so there really needs to be 2 different types of events. Generally, beginners will need some access to rental kayaks or 'loaners'.
I'd be happy to be an assistant organizer for this group and would be able to cross-post with the SOA meetup.

I haven't seen any activity since I joined and it looks like Scott
abandoned the group. Maybe there wasn't enough activity. I'll go ahead and
pay for the next 6 months and become the organizer to hold the group open,
but want to know if people actually have any interest in maybe scheduling
some fairly regular paddling. I'd be interested in a regularly scheduled
paddle maybe every second week on a Monday or Wednesday evening and then
some occasional weekend trips. I have extra kayaks, so we could keep
things fairly low key and geared more to introducing people to the sport
through day paddles in addition to organizing trips for more advanced
paddlers. We could use the existing local infrastructure of WKC,
Mountaineers, etc. for addressing more advanced skill development or work
it ourselves. What do you think? I'd also like at least 3 or 4
co-organizers so that we can keep the schedule full enough to keep people
interested in a great activity
