Chatting in the campout forum I offered to get together with Mark and Robyn and chat about what to expect, gear, and all that fun stuff. At last night SISKA's meeting I had a request to join this social gathering. I thought other people might also want to 'meet and greet' before heading out to an island to meet a bunch of total strangers (novel concept). So meet up and kayak chat anyone? I propose meeting at Moon Under Water Brewpub. We could have some burgers & beers, or cokes. :mrgreen: http://www.moonunderwater.ca/ This is a nice quiet pub with a focus on social. The date I propose is Wednesday February 15 at 6pm. Let me know if this works for you. I am flexible with dates/times, but wanted to try and make this easy for everyone. :clap: I welcome everyone to this gathering. I feel like I need to add a disclaimer here. WCP is a forum that paddlers use to question each other, show-off amazing projects, and communicate. The campout weekend is not a 'guided' event in any way, shape, or form. The expectation is that people are self-sufficient and prepared to paddle and camp using their own skills of judgement, camp craft, seamanship and navigation. In essence, the forum just provides a way for us to meet up at the same place, around the same time. Only you can decide whether you have the requisite skills and knowledge to attend the campout weekend.
