Since 2002, when WWTA first added detailed site information to our website, access to that information has been restricted to WWTA members. The thinking behind this was to encourage people to join our organization and support the water trail sites.
Now we are very excited to announce that all detailed online water trail site information will be OPEN TO ALL-COMERS as of January 2015!
Thank you for kicking off the giving season with such generosity on #GivingTuesday! Our goal for the month of December is a whopping $20,000, and we are well on our way, having raised $1262.33 in just one day. Thank you!! This goal will allow WWTA to start off the year strong, and in a good position to make commitments for the coming year.
What’s coming in 2015:
Coinciding with the Thanksgiving Holiday and the kickoff of the holiday shopping season, #GivingTuesday is a reminder that this season is also about giving back. We ask you to take a moment and MAKE A DONATION to Washington Water Trails Association. A gift to WWTA at this time of year ties in with our annual appeal and your support will make our organization stronger for our work in 2015.
Happy Thanksgiving from all of us at Washington Water Trails Association.
We send our sincerest thanks and appreciation to all who attended our 2014 Fall Paddling Seminar – instructors, participants, volunteers – alike. We couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. Bringing back classes as part of this 2-day event following a 5-year haitus has been a learning experience, one we’ll continue in 2015. Thank you to all who sent feedback, and to everyone else please let us know if you have ideas for next year’s event (email@example.com). Congratulations go out to Leslie Methe, winner of our raffle for EXPED’s Gemini II Tent!
Find out when you spend an informative Tuesday evening at the Good Shepherd Center where Spring Courtright will entertain you with a class on Packing for Multi-Day Paddling Trips. Join us on Tuesday evening (6:30 to 8:30 pm), September 23rd!
Our newly updated guidebook is ‘hot off the press’ and ready for every Washington Water Trails Association member as thank you for your support.
Receiving a copy of the guidebook is just one of the benefits members receive from our organization.
This has been a huge effort over months, and years, involving teams of people working out in the field and behind the scenes. As it has been for over two decades, this is significant member benefit and we encourage you to join now, if you haven’t already. Not current? Now is the time to renew.
Dear Paddle Kitsap Participant:
Well why get up for a 9am meet time when you can get up at Noon? When we changed the date for Paddle Kitsap from Aug 9th to the 23rd we forgot to take into account the tide difference and did not change the timeline. So now everything must be shifted to an afternoon paddle so that we can really ride the tide rather than paddle against it.
We are very sorry for this inconvenience for some and as it turns out a blessing for others that like to sleep in late. So now we will be meeting in Port Orchard at 1PM and starting the paddle at 2:30PM.
SAVE THE DATE!
August 21, 6:30 – 8:30 PM
