I’ve attached the presentation from last night. We’re excited about all the upcoming season and having all of you join us! > Feb 19 Presentation
A couple of things from last night – we’re working on ‘casual clothing‘ – the order site should be up in a few days! I’d like everyone to consider a warmup jacket, and maybe a t-shirt, shorts, sweats. It’s great advertising for the club, and really looks good on the road.
Watch the Calendar
We will have a ‘refinish the K-4‘ day at an airplane hanger down in St Paul later in the spring. This is a poster case for ‘many hands make short work’. We’ll need to do a quick sanding to smoth the surface in preparation for spray coating it.
There is a slide that describes the fees. We’ve added a new ‘entry level’ category for brand new paddlers. The sessions are only a month long, and fees will apply to Sprint 1 if kids decide to move up.
This applies to Sprint 2 only. Sprint 2 paddlers should have their own paddles, but we understand this may not work for everyone. To ensure that Sprint 2 paddlers have good equipment, we’ll have a limited number of paddles to rent for the season, to be returned in the same condition as you got them.
If you are contemplating buying a paddle or boat, let me know ASAP. We’ll be ordering Braca paddles in March, and right now is a good time to be looking for boats. Arndt and I watch the good sources in Canada and the US and can help get a boat that matches you!
Personal boats in the boathouse. We are working with Ramsey County to take ‘the big step’, with an interim step of a container at the park for a base of operations. If/when that happens, we’ll have a personal boat storage fee – like every other kayak and rowing club in the country!
Will you be ready?
Finally – we’re planning to be on the water as soon as the ice is out. Time to get off the couch, do your pull-ups, and get ready to go fast!!!
Please let me or Arndt know if you have any questions, concerns, etc.
Think open water!!!
