Let's meet for a paddle on Lake Washington. We?ll meet at Magnuson Park at 7pm for a 1 hour paddle and then head over to the Fiddlers Inn for a brew and a bite. I can use a hand loading boats either around 2pm or else around 6pm.

We'll have loaner kayaks replete with life jackets and paddles for about 16 people. I will bump up the RSVP count to allow anyone who is bringing their own kayak to join us.


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. I did not assign any kayaks to Maybe's. You also need to show up otherwise you can't borrow a boat from me in the future.

What to bring:
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
  • Lights - at least one white light e.g. headlamp (not a strobe or flashing light) to be mounted on the kayak on worn on the person. Cyalume lights work great because they still work when wet. Fasten them to your kayak with duct tape.
  • Perhaps a power bar or dried figs to munch on.
  • Sense of Humor and fun.


    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.

    -Saul
