SK102, CPA's on-water skills clinic, is April 24th-26th this year. Pre-registration is open.
The website of the Chesapeake Paddlers Association, Inc. was designed in 2004 and is showing its age. Before redesigning the site, we’d like to get input from users on what features of the current site you value, what additional features we might include, and how you use the site. Members should use the link emailed to them, non-members should take the survey here by Jan 24th.
SK101 is an on land seminar on the basics of sea kayaking.

Pool sessions have been posted for Williamsburg and Fairlands. At this point, availability seems to be limited at pools around the area. Check here for any dates or efforts to coordinate indoor pool sessions.

The Votes have been counted & congratulations to the 2015 Club officers.
