Member dues/cold weather paddling

Hey Paddlers!

I've had a couple inquiries about member dues, so here's how it works.

If you have paid before, the date you paid is your member number-yyyy/mm/dd.  If your date is over a year ago, it's time to renew!

If you haven't paid your dues, just go to the homepage and click the "Pay Online" button.  Simple as that!

Don't be fooled by the unseasonably warm days and go paddle unprotected.  The water is still really cold and a swim could kill.  Dressing in layers will just make you die of hypothermia with waterlogged clothing, you really need neoprene or a drysuit.  If you get too warm, take off your hat or gloves, splash a little water in your face, or drink some cold water.  And don't forget to wear your life jacket.

I have some volunteer opportunities available for paddlers, with Team River Runner-Virginia Beach.  They take wounded warriors and their family members paddling as part of their healing process.  We are putting on a racing point series this year and will need people to help with registration, timing, sponsorship/fundraising, and to act as safety boaters on race courses.  Contact me directly if you want to be a part of this.

For those who have considered competitive paddling but haven't quite gotten there, this is going to be the best year ever.  There will be at least ten local races to take part in.  They will be on our calendar soon!
