2011 TNP Christmas Party - Saturday, December 10, 2011, 6PM - Lyme Tavern

Please come to the Christmas Party at Lyme Tavern next Saturday, December 10th.

This is a very informal party, much like our paddles, show up when you want, order what you want, leave when you want. TNP has the side room reserved. Usually there is a DVD player available, if you have photos from past paddles, or videos or anything you think people would like to see, bring them.

Come even if you never make it to any of the paddles but just want to hang out with good people for awhile.

2011 Season Starting April 19

Woo hoo, its Spring!

The first paddle of the TNP kayaking season is coming up next week. We will be launching from Esker Point. The water is still cold so dressing for the water temperature with a dry suit or wet suit is highly recommended. You safety is your responsibility so it is your choice.

If you are new to paddling with TNP, please note that the launch time is typically 6:00 pm. This means people will be on the water at 6 and paddling away from the launch. Please arrive early enough to get ready and please introduce yourself to the other paddlers.
