  1. While the BOD works on locations, we are open to suggestions! We would love a place that has shade or a pavillion of some sort (that can be reserved), picnic tables, bathrooms/porta potties, adequate parking and (ideally!) water access either fresh or salty. Have a suggestion or an in somewhere? Post it here or contact one of us on the BOD.
  2. HI Paul Our Zoom account is limited to 100 participants. I don't think it will be a problem. Janet
  3. Sounds like an amazing weekend!

    Zoom with MITA

    The North Shore Paddlers Network and the Southern Maine Seakayaking Network are pleased to welcome the Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) for a conversation about what's new on the Maine Island Trail. Join MITA's Program Director Brian Marcaurelle and Trustee Dan Carr to explore the newest Trail sites and discuss MITA's latest initiatives, which aim to strengthen relations with Maine's fishing community, increase coastal boat launching and parking options, and improve the Trail experience in Penobscot Bay. Following an introductory presentation, MITA will seek input and suggestions from our knowledgeable group to guide their work. Zoom meeting information is in the NSPN Business forum (accessible to current paid members only)

    On May 24, Ty Gagne will be giving a Zoom presentation to NSPN about his work and thoughts in risk management. Bring your questions for a Q+A at the conclusion of the presentation. Hope you can join us! The Last Traverse and Managing Risk in High-Consequence Environments: On a mountain somewhere above treeline, in some of the coldest and worst winter conditions imaginable, two men lie unconscious in the snow as explosive winds batter the nearby summits. In The Last Traverse; Tragedy and Resilience in the Winter Whites, Ty Gagne lays out the events that led up to an epic and legendary rescue attempt in severe and dangerous winter conditions in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. More than a cautionary tale, it is a tribute to all the volunteers and professionals who willingly put themselves in harm’s way to save lives. In addition to discussing the book, Ty will also cover decision-making and risk management principles in unpredictable and unforgiving environments. Ty Gagne is chief executive officer of New Hampshire Public Risk Management Exchange (Primex³), a public entity risk pool serving local governments in New Hampshire. He is a certified Wilderness First Responder and the author of the book The Last Traverse: Tragedy and Resilience in the Winter Whites and Where You’ll Find Me: Risk, Decisions, and the Last Climb of Kate Matrosova. Two of his essays, “Emotional Rescue,” and “Weakness in Numbers: How a Hiking Companion can be Dangerous” were published in Appalachia journal. https://zoom.us/j/98343533459?pwd=YlBrcG5zeTA4YWRXbVQzd3R1cEthUT09 Meeting ID: 983 4353 3459 Passcode: 161693
  7. Interesting... I just posted and it didn't ask for a Captcha. Where did you run into that?
  8. Want to make sure you are getting the best of NSPN? Make sure we have your up-to-date email address associated with your message board account, so you don't miss out on club-wide emails (and message board alerts, if you use those). To update it, go to the top right corner where you see your name, drop down menu to "Account Settings", then option "Email Address". Easy! See you on the water, Janet
  9. Jonathan it would be really cool to see photos of the process, too, if you have time to document it!
  10. Hi Alex I'm free both days and would be interested in paddling with you, weather permitting! Only been to RI once so anywhere is good with me.
  11. I'm 5'7 and paddle other low-ish volume boats (Atlantic LV, regular Avocet) but found both the Cetus LV and Scorpio LV too snug for comfort.
  12. While I have little interest in the crossing, I would love to get a ride out and paddle around!
  13. Not too late to join us on zoom! We are just getting started.
