General Meetings

We invite you to attend one of our monthly general meetings! They are free and open to the public: you don’t need to be a BASK member in order to attend.

BASK provides food, a featured speaker, club news, and information about upcoming events. It’s a great way to meet club members and learn about new paddling opportunities. Usually one meeting per year is a potluck and one meeting is a chili cookoff and pie contest! The next BASK general meeting is usually listed on the home page, and you can also see a list of the many fascinating speakers who have presented at past meetings.

Planning Meetings

In addition to the General Meetings, we conduct monthly Planning Meetings, where we discuss and plan the club’s policies, activities, and communications. Meetings are hosted by a club member and include a potluck dinner. Location, dates and times vary—see the members-only calendar for more details.
