All Club members, family and friends are welcome. The Club will supply buns, hamburgers and hotdogs and we request that those attending bring either a salad or dessert. If we have enough attendees we would like to accept the Outta Sight Awareness Paddle Challenge. This is where sighted paddlers have their vision impaired by being blindfolded, or by another method, and paddle with or against their visually impaired Club member.

Please be sure to bring lawn chairs and lawn games for entertainment! Details regarding the Awareness Paddle will be sent out once we know if we have enough paddlers to hold the event.
