  1. It is always disappointing to have it canceled. Haverhill is always apologetic but says they rely on the town plowing and consequently get plowed after the roads. The young life guard and also the building maintenance person also need to be there and they may not be as adventurous as ocean kayakers! Haverhill is north of 495 and is in the 12-16" range for this snow storm. We did ask them for an early decision this time as some people travel far for the pool sessions. Janice
  2. Pot luck for the party Please post what you are planning to bring so we don't end up with all desserts. You can post specifics or category. I'm bringing a vegan dessert and a quinoa veggie dish with a tahini miso citrus dressing. Janice
  3. We hope everyone has their calendars marked for both the General Meeting at 5:00 and the 6:00 start of the Winter Cabin Fever Breakout Party. Don't forget it's a potluck and byob and bring money for the wonderful raffle items! Last year we had a bumper year for generous raffle items donated. All proceeds go directly to three non profits that support the water environment (MITA, MCHT and Salem Sound Watch). There's still time to donate! See you there! Janice and Pru PS Bring food! Come hungry!
  4. Today's pool session will be canceled due to the snowstorm. The HS relies on the town for plowing and will not be plowed until late so they have canceled today's (1/7/17) pool session. Individuals signed up for today's with be notified. It's New England!
  5. It's winter in New England and there is always the possibility of a snowstorm. Haverhill HS will let us know by 9:00 AM if a pool session will be canceled due to inclement weather and we will post it here as soon as we hear. Thanks, Janice
  6. Great photos! Looks like a wonderful paddle. Happy New Year Janice
  7. Congratulations to all three of you! That takes dedication and hard work! Yay! Janice
  8. Great trip report and photos! Thanks Peter ( and Pru for your wonderful photos!). It was a wonderful weekend. One correction - Friday, Day 1 group 2 went around the Porcipines and also Ironbound where we encountered some big slow swells (several sets of 4-5 feet swells) along with some lively conditions. Very funny photo...the deadpan expressions next to Peters is a riot! Janice
  9. Sounds like it was a great way to spend a hot summer day! Nice trip report! Great pictures too!
  10. Thanks Pru for your photos and great trip report. It was a wonderful weekend with wonderful friends. Stonington and Saddleback Island have become my favorite place to paddle! I can't wait until next year!
  11. I won't be there as I'm heading up to Saddleback really early tomorrow. I think a few people last week said they'd be there but I don't know given the weather.
  12. I'll be there too, but a little late due to work. Boat is on my car Janice
  13. I think I will opt out of tomorrow's CAM session. I was on the fence for this weekend to begin with as I've been really busy. Have fun and stay safe. It does look like there are lots of options. I hope to see you all on the water soon. Janice
  14. Congratulations Sid!
