Club Presidents' Comment

President's Message

This month brings us to the end of another busy year, and brings to a close my third and final term as TBSK Presi-dent. I have been with TBSK for more that 18 years and I have been honored to serve as President for the past three years. I want to thank all of the Board members, trip leaders, and members who have worked hard to keep TBSK active, and continue the long tradition of keeping TBSK as one of the leading sea kayak clubs in the country.

Please plan to attend our annual Holiday Party as we celebrate another successful year, and help us welcome a new Board of Directors to carry TBSK into 2015.

-- Jim

December Program and Speakers

We will have a fun packed evening of dinner, speaker, awards and election of new board members.  Ham, turkey and soft drinks will be provided. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Sign-up sheets will be passed around at out Nov. meeting for food items needed and for assistance with decorating the AM of the party and clean-up afterwards. Any help you can give will be appreciated. Come and enjoy the evening with your fellow paddlers!

Speakers Joe Mullen and Ed Engel have been to Baja this fall and bring us many tales and many, many slides. Come and hear what our own irrepressible adventurers have been up to.
