NSKC is kicking off our 15th season with our annual open organizational and planning meeting, including a club information session for newcomers. We will present an overview of our plans for 2019, along with a discussion of paddling equipment, safety procedures and protocols, and a slide show of “Trip Highlights from the 2018 Season”. The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 21, at 7:30 p.m. in the Hagedorn Room, on the top floor of the Port Washington Public Library. Annual dues will be collected ($10, cash only), to support the use of Meetup and other club expenses. See you there!
