What we're about

If you enjoy being on the water whether it be the lake, ocean, bay, or river, this group is for you. For stand up paddlers, kayakers, surfers, and all water sport enthusiasts, this is the place to meet others who enjoy being on the water. Most paddles are exploratory covering approximately 5 miles or more conditions permitting. Experienced and non-experienced welcome, depending on the event. Some events are held where rentals are available while others require you to bring your own gear; rented off-site or owned.

ALL MEMBERS OF THIS GROUP AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING TERMS AND CONDITIONS:

1. This is an online social network that periodically hosts events where members meet in person. The group is NOT a substitute for competent, professional paddling instruction from a professional kayaker, stand up paddle boarder, surf instructor, or guiding service. Organizers, Assistant Organizers, Event Organizers, Members, and Sponsors do NOT guarantee the competence of any individual in this group. Members are responsible for their own safety and should be aware of their ability.

2. Water sports pose dangers in any environment- calm, flat water to waves. Any and all consequences as a result of participating in a Meetup activity, including but not limited to personal injury and property damage or loss are an accepted risk to the participant. If you get hurt or suffer property damage or loss in connection with an event posted on this website, it is entirely your responsibility and NOT the responsibility of the Meetup group or any individuals associated with the Meetup group. BY JOINING AND PARTICIPATING WITH THIS GROUP YOU ACCEPT FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR SAFETY, BELONGINGS, HEALTH, AND WELL-BEING, WITH NO EXCEPTIONS.

3. Be courteous to your fellow paddlers. Please only RSVP if you seriously plan on attending; not just holding a spot and waiting for a "better" option. If your plans change and you cannot attend an event, please change your RSVP ASAP so someone else can join and we do not expect you.

4. Posted event times will be the meet time. Allow sufficient time for parking, unloading, and journey prep (ie bathroom, sunscreen, snack, etc) to be ready for timely departure.

5. Inflatable kayaks such as Intex are not recommended for most outings. In past experiences, they have difficulty keeping pace with the group and navigating, especially in breezy conditions.

IF YOU DO NOT WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND COMPLETELY AGREE WITH THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, THEN YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO JOIN THIS GROUP OR PARTICIPATE IN ITS EVENTS.

All that being said, this group is an excellent chance to try out an incredibly rewarding sport! This group encourages folks of all abilities to join and try new things.

See you on the water!

Falls Township Park Evening Paddle

Falls Township Community Park

Keeping this very simple, no stress, show up if you want to. That is it.

I don't have an imbedded chip or a USB cable from an RF device jacked into my skull to send/receive endless messages-see above^.
The quarried lake is so clear you can see 15' down and only 3200' long, so you can see the opposite end.
There is an osprey and a pair of bald eagles that frequent these quarries to fish, coreopsis, purple loosestrife, thorn berries and a plethora of flora and fauna to observe.
I plan to do a lap or two for time and work on a paddle skill each outing.
You can canoodle around if you want to, no worries.
Meet at the boat launch or out on the water.
No fees, no permits.
Life Jackets!
Elizabeth made it clear that I had my straight corded leash for these events. Lead by example-full pun intended.
As always-be prepared!
