Here’s the 2019 PIKA Paddles and Trip Calendar!

Version 4, March 14, 2019

Our paddles and trips calendar offers weekday, weekend and longer paddles. Click on the picture to open the document. Check back often as there are changes!

You must be a club member to join in on the paddles, and there are no “drop ins” permitted. If it’s a single day paddle, you’ll need to let the trip facilitator know at least two days ahead so the float plan can be created and sent to the trip coordinator. If it’s a weekend or longer trip, then more than a week’s notice of your intent to participate is required. More adventurous week long paddles require pre-meetings to make sure everyone is capable of safely making the trip.

Check it out! Plan your paddling year and let the facilitators know as soon as you know!

PIKA’s trip classification system

The first page of the calendar describes PIKA’s trip classification system. Don’t overestimate your paddling skills; if you are unsure, get out on less strenuous (and less risky) paddles until you’re comfortable and have enough skills and stamina to do the higher level paddles.

Mentoring program

Are you new to the club and/or paddling? We have a mentoring program! Speak with the membership coordinator at their table at the next club meeting and they will coordinate a mentor for you.

Tips for new members

We have a few tips for new members – this is mailed to all new members, but is a good reminder for everyone! PIKA New Paddler Guidelines includes all the “basics” for any paddler with PIKA.
