How to Join our Paddling Community
To Become a Member of the Greater Albuquerque & Santa Fe Kayak/SUP/Canoe/Raft Community, you must first be (or become) a member of Meetup.com. Membership is free and you can register using your Facebook account, or create a new account on Meetup.com
Once you're a member of Meetup.com, navigate to (or search for) The Greater ABQ & Santa Fe Kayak/SUP/Canoe/Raft Meetup Community. Click "Join this Group" to become a member of this paddling group.
You'll be asked to complete 3 profile questions, and upload a photo. Unlike other online communities, we strive to get people together face-to-face. Online privacy is important to us all, thus the information on this site is available to members only. Your picture and whereabouts will only be visible to members of this group.
Already a member? Now it's time to RSVP for your first event! Life is what you make of it, and this group is no different. We're an active group, and ready to share our knowledge and information with you....but you have to take the initiative to meet up with us. If you're not sure where to begin, ask the organizers or attend one of the "Wednesday Night Open House at Sandia Lakes". You'll meet dozens of paddlers welcoming you to the group.
