Are you interested in becoming a Trip Organizer for the Jacksonville Kayaking Meetup Group?
As many of you have noticed our Meetup group has grown to over 556 members strong, and counting! It's important that we keep our trips safe and enjoyable, but with the increase in members it has been brought to the attention of your organizers that we need more people planning trips, and we need it done in a safe and efficient manner!
The whole reason behind this meetup group is to help connect paddlers! and I have to say our Organizers have done a great job! It's time for our base to grow, and with that we need a few good men and women!
