Happy 2018 paddlers! It may seem early, but after a few months of rest its time to start thinking about our 2018 season. To that end there is board meeting Wednesday (check your e-mail for more information). After that, expect to see some more updates on kickoff meeting, race schedule, and practices for 2018.
Mahalo to everyone who came out to practice on Monday. We had 20 paddlers show up and 2 graciously volunteered to sit out. That's the first time this season. Its never good to leave anyone on shore but this is definitely filed under good problems to have. If we keep up the great spirit and recruiting, we might have to find another Canoe!
Paddlefest was a great success for the club. Thank You to everyone who committed to the extra paddling and helped promote the club in the community. We had many interested people taking rides and hopefully we get some new members out of it. See some pictures below.
Less than a Week now! Huge thank you to everyone who came out to help get the wa'a off the trailer and rig them for our first practice next week. Everything went smoothly and we are all ready to get on the water. The weather even cooperated; it turned out to be a really nice day outside and I'm hoping we can have that good luck for next weekend too. Check out the gallery below for pictures of the process while you get your Paddle, PFD and gear ready for next week.
It's starting to get real now! The Canoes left their winter home and are ready to be rigged next weekend.
Losing some sleep today may be frustrating but don't despair paddling is only 3 weeks away! One advantage of the time change is the extra evening light allows us to start our full 3-day per week practice schedule right away after April 1st.
We are now 1 week out from the season kick-off meeting. If you go to our new calendar page you can save a link to your personal calendar so you don't forget. There is also a Facebook event, please invite your friends we want to have as many people at the meeting as we can.
