BASK General Meeting at Oakland Middle Harbor Shoreline Park, Sunday June 11, 11 am - 4 pm

Join us for a fun outdoor potluck, meet the latest Skills Clinic class of 2023, and meet fellow BASKers at the next general meeting on Sunday, June 11 at Oakland Middle Harbor Shoreline Park. The gear swap begins at 10 am and the general meeting at 11 am. We have pavilions B and C reserved for the BASK meeting, the gear swap, and a special birthday recognition for Penny Wells, a co-founder of BASK (who will turn 80 in June!).

There is no featured speaker for this meeting, just a chance for BASKers to visit and catch up. Mary Ann Furda has agreed to lead us in a Muscle of the Month exercise in the fresh outdoors.

As for kayaking, a paddle to the meeting, starting at 8:30 from Tidewater Boating Center, has been initiated; see the Currents post here. But beware, the meeting start time coincides with low tide and the beach can get very muddy, so exercise caution if planning on paddling to or from the meeting. Also, a New Member Paddle is planned nearby after the meeting.

If you’ve been curious about Greenland or Aleut style paddles versus Euro paddles, this is the time to visit! Members will bring some of their own Greenland/Aleut paddles, and Kathy Bunton of Delta Kayaks will bring a few representative paddles as well.

Please sign up if you will attend, to help us plan. We’ll also need some volunteers to help with setup and cleanup, so please don’t be shy. Sign-up for helpers is here. (There are two tabs on the Google sheet).
