To renew your BASK membership:
- Print out the membership application/waiver form (see link below).
- Read the waiver.
- Check the “I am renewing a current or lapsed membership” option on the form.
- Fill out your information on the form, sign it, and date it.
- Mail the signed form, along with a check for your dues to:
c/o Penny Wells
50 El Pavo Real Circle
San Rafael, CA 94903
Dues (payable to BASK):
- Individual: $30
- Senior/Student/Out of State: $20
We'll update your account as soon as we receive your form and check. For current members, your membership will be good for one year after your current expiration date. For lapsed members, your membership will be good for one year after BASK receives your payment.
Your name and mailing address are required, so that we know where to send your copy of our annual membership directory. We also require you to provide a valid and unique email address so that we can remind you to renew when your membership is about to expire. All other contact information is optional.
Unless you request otherwise, your contact information will be listed in the online directory in the members-only section of the BASK website, and in the printed directory that is mailed to all BASK members annually. After you renew, you can edit your membership profile on the BASK website, where you can supply additional information about yourself, as well as opt out of having contact information such as email address, street address, and phone numbers listed in the directories. Unless you opt out of the online directory entirely, other BASK members will always be able to see your city and state. If you opt out of the online directory entirely, you will not be able to see other members in the online directory.
On the membership application, do not choose a new username; you will be assigned the username associated with your record in the BASK member database. After BASK receives your payment, you will receive an email with your username and a login link. If you do not remember your password, you can request password assistance; this will allow you to create a new password. Your username and password will give you access to the members-only area of the BASK website.
About BASK Activities
BASK activities are common adventures, shared experiences based on cooperation and mutual support. The initiators of BASK activities act as focal points to bring together the ideas, energies, and resources of the group, but are not formal leaders. They are not paid, do not represent BASK, and can take no responsibility for the safety or well-being of participants. Therefore, you should take the time to research and understand the degree of physical risk involved in these activities and be sure that you are prepared for it, make sure that you have all the required equipment and that it works, and be prepared to take responsibility for your own safety and good spirits throughout the activity.
One of the goals of BASK is to establish a feeling of community among Bay Area sea kayakers. If you know any sea kayakers who might be interested in BASK, please invite them to join us.
