President's Message

Congratulations to our new trip leaders Harry Tobin and Theresa Eby. We look forward to going on paddles which they will be leading.

When the occasion presents itself, please pass out our TBSK brochures and business cards to people who might be interested in our club. Our membership coordinator (Keith Fowler), Trip Coordinator (George Burns) and President (Hank Brooks) can get them for you.

The technology for our web site is being updated, but we realize this has resulted in some issues. If you notice anything unusual, please let us know as soon as possible.

August Meeting

Speaker: The Well-Maintained Sea Craft (Dan Nelson, better known as 'Anchor Dan')
Sooner or later you will need to repair something on your kayak. It could be just a scratch in the gelcoat, a broken fitting or a hole in the fiberglass. Perhaps you need some help figuring out how to run new lifelines on your boat. Maybe you are looking for some tips or tricks to make your boat a little faster in the water? Dan has had many years of experience building, repairing and modifying every type of marine vessel as owner of Anchor Marine restorers. Join us for this presentation and learn something new from a maritime professional.
