Announcing a new Meetup for Seattle Area Sea Kayaking Meetup Group!
What: Volunteer Op - Be a Swim Course Kayaker for the Cottage Lake Triathlon
When: Saturday, September 11,[masked]:30 AM
Cottage Lake Park
18831 NE Woodinville Duvall Rd
Woodinville, WA 98072
We still need 25 more kayakers to help with swim safety at the Cottage Lake Triathlon Sat Sept 11, 2010
We meet at O dark thirty, but the coffee and bagels are great ;-)
We meet at the swim start at Cottage Lake Park at 6:30am, spend 20 minutes going over what each of us needs to do and then support the race for about 2 hours. We are primarily responsible for monitoring the edges of the course, chasing down wayward swimmers and providing a rest bouy (our boat) to tired swimmers. We also provide encouragement as well as transport some swimmers back to shore when requested. Danskin has divers and medical professionals on several larger boats that handle a bigger emergency. The exact details will be sent to you as city permit requirements get flowed down to the schedule.
So come join us and help out, in addition to feeling good about your contribution, you'll meet some great people, have some coffee and bagels and even get a volunteer T shirt.
I will bring loaner boats for all that need them,, so far I know the following people needs kayaks, let me know if you also need one.
Thanks - Saul
I'll also host a BBQ for all of you after the event at my house in Kenmore at about 3pm or so - more details to follow in a later email:
Thanks - Saul
