Once again no one else volunteered and I was elected president, and once again I’m putting too much time in.
I now hope everyone had as good a paddling season. I know some of you chose to paddle with your ‘pod’ or not do club trips to control the situation more. Hope we can get you back with the club!
I’m excited to be once again taking the reigns as President of KCCNY.
My goals for the coming year.
Migrate complete to a new wordpress based website here on kccny.org
More Trips and making it easier run a KCCNY trip.
Accepting ACA online waivers. Some serious glitches, but if someone reads it’s a pretty painless process.
And any member can lead a kccny trip. We really need more beginner and easy trips. There’s no such thing as too easy, and rivers like Lehigh on release days you’ll have a lot of support from other paddlers.
Getting more folks involved.
Continue with a Zoom alternate for meetings even when we can meet in person again.
An additional thanks goes out to the generous charitable contributions of our members that has allowed KCCNY to donate to American Whitewater and the American Rivers this year. I’ve heard back from American Rivers where we are now an official River ambassador and soon to be added to https://www.americanrivers.org/make-an-impact/partner-with-us/river-ambassadors/ .
Looking forward to seeing you on the river (or on Zoom) soon!
