Welcome back returning paddlers and a big warm welcome to those who are new to the sport and our club.
This email is to provide you with some important information to help make your experience a good one this year.
REGISTER FOR PADDLE SESSIONS
Our online calendar is where you sign up for paddle sessions. Simply click on the sessions you would like and follow the steps as indicated. You will receive a confirmation email. Feel free to sign up for a few weeks at a time if you know your schedule. The system will tell you how many spots remain. We generally won't run a session with less than 8 paddlers, and this will also be dependent on the weather. The maximum is 20. You can be added to a wait list should someone cancel out. Having said all this, if you show up without registering and there is a seat available, you are welcome to paddle.
CANCELLATION OF PADDLE SESSION
If you can't make a paddle, please go online and cancel your seat. Go to the online calendar and select the day you wish to cancel. Just below the registration button you will see "already registered". Click here and follow instructions to cancel the session. You will get an email confirming your actions. Freeing up your seat may allow someone else to get in a boat from the wait list.
The listed time is departure from dock. Please arrive a bit early in particular if you need club gear. It's also a great time to meet people and do a little warm up of the joints before paddling. Your coach will be lining up paddlers before loading to ensure a balanced distribution of weight in the baot.
Parking is on Bay Street or Baldwin. The parking lot is owned by the restaurant and marina and is for their patrons. The municipal lot to the east of the restaurant is for vehicles using the boat launch.
Please dress for the weather. We have paddled in less than perfect conditions, dressing in layers will help you. You will get wet. Bulky and loose clothing are not ideal, but you will quickly figure things out. Warmer weather means, sunscreen and hats as a guide. Please bring WATER when you paddle. You are out for an hour. Cell phones can be brought at your own risk (waterproof pouch) and car keys can be left in our secure shed. Paddles and life jackets of varying sizes are available for your use.
MISCELLANEOUS BUT IMPORTANT
Our covid safety protocols can be found on our website in the drop down menu. Most important is that you stay home if not feeling 100% and that you follow isolation guidelines.
