Event Participation Responsibilities and Etiquette

If you wish to participate in Paddle Trails Canoe Club events, here are the things you need to know:


·       Trip coordinators are not professional guides, they are volunteering their time.  Be nice to them.

·       Consumption of alcohol or recreational drugs is not permitted while boating during club events.

·       Know the driving time to the intended meeting location and be on time.

·       Offer to help with the shuttle.


Registering and Cancelling

·       Sign up for events at least 2 days prior to the event, preferably on the website’s event’s calendar. 

·       You may register by calling or emailing the coordinator but please register if you can.

·       If you need to cancel, let the coordinator know as far in advance as possible.



·       PFDs are required while on the water.

·       Helmets are recommended for all river trips and required for rivers over class II.

·       Drysuits are recommended for much of the year. 

·       Equipment must be in good condition and suitable for the type of event (if you’re not sure, ask the coordinator).

·       Bring a throw rope and know how to use it.
