We have new CPA trip waivers. All participants in CPA sponsored on-water trips and events must sign a legal release form. Trip & event leaders are responsible for collecting signed releases & for returning them to the Club Secretary. Failure to collect, save & forward these waivers may invalidate trip leader coverage under our liability policy.
The CPA has a dedicated space for paddlers seeking or selling gear.
