Announcing a new event for Seattle Area Sea Kayaking Meetup Group!

What: Daylight Lk Union Paddle before potluck BBQ

When: Sunday, September 16, 4:30 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Event Description: Hi, several people wanted to have an earlier paddle so they can rent boats before the places close. I do not know how to get in touch with Fran, but maybe she'll lead it. There's a *slim* chance I'll be able to do 3mo of housecleaning before then. If I were leading, I think I would go over to the arboretum. It's a bit windy so the Montlake cut might be a little tricky, but should be great once you get over there. I put the start point as Moss Bay because they do overnight rentals. For a couple bucks more you can keep them for an extra day and paddle Monday too. Fran or anyone is free to call me with a better idea and to update the MU. This is a separate event from the later one so be sure to RSVP to both if you're doing both or RSVP just to the later one (http://seakayaking.meetup.com/35/calendar/6280825/) if you can't paddle, but want to socialize.

Rentals: Moss Bay is on Lk Union (http://www.mossbay.net/boat-rentals.aspx) and they do hourly or daily takeaway rentals ($55 for a single). You could get one for tonight and do another paddle again tomorrow before 5P. NW Outdoor Center (http://www.nwoc.com/) is also on Lk Union just a stone's throw east of my place.

New/Used: I think Seattle Raft and Kayak is having their fall clearance (http://www.seattleraftandkayak.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=page.display&page_id=166) and REI is having their Labor Day sale. Lots of great stuff on Craigslist this AM too (http://seattle.craigslist.org/search/boa?query=kayak&minAsk=min&maxAsk=max)

Give me a yell if you want me to organize (not necessarily lead) a paddle Mon before overnight renters need to turn in their boats at 5P.

I hope you all enjoy the weekend and looking forward to seeing some of you later!
