Signing up for paddling events

Good afternoon everyone,

In the week I've been administrating this meetup, I've gotten a lot of questions regarding when the next event is or how to request a kayak to borrow.

Some of these requests indicate that the layout of the site isn't intuitive for everyone.

As far as what events are coming up, we have pretty much one each week and to see the list of meetups either click on the Calendar link on the left side of the page or click on this direct link :

This week we had a meetup on Monday night, our next one is a skills development session on Sunday July 29. On Friday August 3 we have another evening paddle and one of our Organizers is probably going to post a trip out to Blake Island for the 4th and 5th in the next couple of days.

On meetups I organize, I usually have between 10 people and 18 people worth of kayaks I can loan out in a mix of singles and tandems. It varies quite a bit depending on whether friends of mine are using them that day. The best thing you can do is state that you need to borrow a kayak in the comments on your RSVP and I will let you know if I have one for you. I was pleased at this last meetup that everyone that borrowed either showed up or notified me (even if one did email me after we already launched, so I was towing an empty kayak ;-)

If an event is full but you really want to do it, RSVP "No" but in your comments state that you are waiting for an opening and I will try to accomodate you. Sometimes I can borrow additional boats.


So please take a look at the calendar and we'll see you on the water soon.
