  • Sep 27,2005 - Welcome Back. Join us for our Tall Tales and True Stories about our trips this summer.

  • Oct 25, 2005 - Faulene Main will narrate her group�s fun filled, exciting trip down the class 4 and 5 rapids of the Owyhee River in southeastern Oregon � by rafts and inflatable kayaks, on a 5-day guided trip. Birdlife, beautiful canyon hikes, and Indian petroglyphs abounded.

  • Nov 29, 2005 - The red-rock canyons of the lower Green River in Utah are magnificent, wild and deep, yet the river winds its way through them in smooth and unruffled style, providing a superb setting for flat-water kayaking.  Led by Pete Weiner, nine Seattle-area kayakers -- most of them SSKC members - paddled nearly 100 miles of the Green to its confluence with the Colorado,

  • Dec 27, 2005 - HAPPY HOLIDAYS

  • Jan 31, 2006 -  join us as Curt Mobley presents the saga of Greenland -- a group sea kayak adventure among countless icebergs and glaciers and stunning vistas, but in a place with almost no other human beings, and not a single tree.

  • Feb 28, 2006- The jewel-like islands of the Broken Group, in Barkley Sound on Vancouver Island's west coast, seem made for kayakers; which is probably why they're so popular.  Besides their beauty, the islands offer varied paddling conditions -- protected waters on the inside, more lively ones on the ocean-exposed outside - plus many other attractions. Faulene Main, who has plied these waters more than once, will share stories and pictures from her latest trip.  Faulene and six other Seattle-area paddlers joined a trip led by Babs Kunkle, for a week in the islands.

  • Mar 28, 2006 - A sea-kayak trip to Gwaii Haanas is high on every paddler's list of trips-of-a-lifetime. Located in the Queen Charlotte Islands, this Canadian National Park Reserve and Haida Heritage Site contains the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Sgang Gwaay (Anthony Island) with its stunning totem poles, as well as spectacular scenery, wildlife, and hot springs.
    -- Most paddlers rely on tour operators to provide itinerary, boats, and food. However, paddling on your own can be more satisfying and affordable. Best of all, it lets you stay longer!
    -- In the summer of 2005, four paddlers from the Seattle area made the pilgrimage on their own: Marlla Mhoon, Bill Blair, Jon Shemerdiak, and Randy Stephenson. They�ll share their photographs and video, logistical arrangements, cost information, charts, gear lists, menus and cooking tips that allowed them to enjoy sixteen days on and in the waters of Gwaii Haanas.
    -- Come with paper, pencil, and questions. There�s still time to make your own reservations for this summer!

  • Apr 25, 2006-The adventurers � Northwest kayakers who paddled the Southwest coast of Costa Rica last year, Rob Gibbert, Scott Hagerty and Brian Schulz � will bring you scenes and tales of their 100-mile expedition at this month�s SSKC meeting.

  • May 30, 2006 - George Gronseth, one of our region�s most respected kayaking instructors and an authority on paddling safety, will speak at SSKC�s May 30th meeting, 7 p.m. at Seattle REI.

  • June 27, 2006 - OUR ANNUAL PICNIC.....the Social Event of the season is on Tuesday, June 27.  We gather between 5:00 and 6:00 P.M. and the pizza arrives at 6:30 P.M.  (Hint: don�t be too late or it will be all gone).  Come to Magnuson Park on Lake Washington and look for shelter #1.  Some of us will be coming early to hold the table.
