Announcing a new event for Seattle Area Sea Kayaking Meetup Group!
What: Lake Washington Paddle & BBQ
When: Thursday, September 6, 7:15 PM
Where: Click the link below to find out!
Event Description: Our first meetup of the summer was so popular, that we decided to have a few more weeknight paddles. So let's go for a paddle after work on a Thursday night again. Our 7:15 launch is a bit later for the Seattle folks to get through traffic and so that we'll see more of the evening wild life such as the beavers.
Bring a headlamp, you'll need it for the return paddle.
I can bring 6 single and 3 tandem kayaks replete with life jackets and paddles (that means up to 12 of you can borrow one of my boats, others will need to bring their own). 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.
There are THREE 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.
Log Boom Park is at the very north end of Lk WA in Kenmore right on the Burke-Gilman Trail:
If you decide not to show up, please email me, or change your RSVP or even phone me at least an hour before the launch. No shows for borrowed boats are a headache since that means we delay launch while I drive 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 I paddle isn't that much fun.
It'll be great to meet all of you and have a fun paddle.
