Recreational Paddling Returns
Thanks to everyone who responded to our survey last month. It looks like we have quite a few paddlers interested in recreational paddling, so we’ve added to the schedule weekly rec paddle sessions at:
- Petaluma site (Foundry Wharf) – Tuesday evenings at 6pm, tide dependent.
- San Rafael site (101 Surf Sports) – Saturday mornings at 11am
Please note that rec paddle sessions are dependent on the number of signups on Teamstuff. Please use Teamstuff to mark your intent at least a 24 hours before the session, otherwise it may be cancelled. If you’re not a paid member and want to drop-in for a rec paddle, please contact us at [email protected] and we’ll get you signed up.
For the full practice and race schedule, please check out the club calendar – http://members.heenaluocc.org/calendar.
Race Season Begins in May
We’re less than a month away from our first long distance race! Our race season officially starts with the Viva Aloha in Alameda on May 12th, followed by Monterey Hoe Wa’a on May 26th. Some paddlers have also expressed interest in going to SoCal for Rig Run in Santa Barbara on May 19th. Go He’e Nalu!
If you’d like to race in any of these events, please mark your intent in Teamstuff as “Going” for the event(s). Please set your intent inTeamstuff at least 2 weeks before race date so coaches have time to set crews and plan logistics. Once crews are set, your coaches will let you know further details about the race.
Stay Up-to-Date on the Members Site
Most of you who are paid members should have an account now on the He’e Nalu Members Site – http://members.heenaluocc.org. This season, we plan on using the member site as our online hub for announcements, club documents, policy & procedure manual, training related videos, references and tips. There’s also a training log too built in to help you track your miles and time trials over the course of the season. All these resources are there permanently for you to take advantage of – like it’s 2018!
If you have any questions about the member site, or how to find/use a specific feature, please let us know at [email protected] We want to keep improving this online resource to make it work for everyone.
Volunteer Committee Sign-ups
Now that the season is under way, it’s time to check-in so we can check-off some to-do items on our list. Aside from our love for paddling, we know that our ohana is full of other talents and stoke — and we need your help!
If you are interested in sharing your talents and time with the club, we’re always looking for volunteers. Please check out this short list of committees and let us know what you’re interested in and we’ll make it happen – https://goo.gl/forms/RueJ2g2GnZg58DGr1.
Your help is needed to make this season extra fun and running smoothly. Thank you in advance, we greatly appreciate it!
