WISTA USA Metro Chapter – Kayaking and Conversation
May 22, 2021
WISTA DC Metro is hosting a networking and kayaking event at Belle Haven Marina, located just south of historic Old Town Alexandria, https://www.saildc.com/. We intend to kayak for roughly two hours along the Potomac, followed by light post-exercise refreshments and conversation in the adjoining park.
Once we have confirmed attendance, we will reserve a group of kayaks. The group will then meet by the rental office/trailer at Belle Haven Marina to pay individually for the kayaks, which will be $30.00 each for two hours. To get everyone processed and waivers signed (https://app.cleverwaiver.com/render/templateByRefId/6075cb3b4cc416a51d3747f2), please try and be at the Marina no later than 11:45. Once we get back, Sarah and I will have snacks and drinks on ice in our cars that we can set up in the adjoining park.
Sounds fun, right? If you need more encouragement, Sarah and I went this last weekend to scope it out and caught this guy up in a tree:
Please RSVP by Friday, 14 May 2021, to the addresses below:
email@example.com and Sarah.E.Brennan1@uscg.mil
Because we hopefully will need a number of kayaks, we will need to confirm with the Marina a week in advance. Please also remember to bring sunscreen, bug spray, and a camp chair for after. We are of course hoping for great weather. If the weather is not hospitable to a day on the river, we will readjust.
As always, let us know if you have any ideas for a Chapter event, industry updates, or any Chapter suggestions. It may even be possible that our next event can be held in-doors!
