PayPal and Credit Cards are Here

Beginning July 15, 2019, you will be able to apply for or renew memberships online and pay dues via PayPal or credit card. By August 15, members will also be able to sign up online for Eastern ski trips and use PayPal or credit card for payment.

Membership dues will not change. Ski trips will be priced to recover the servicing fees from PayPal. Trip Flyers will show the full trip price along with a notice of a discount for cash/check if you choose to make payment that way.

Worry less when paying with a PayPal account. You don’t have to share all your financial information every time, and PayPal’s encryption helps keeps your transactions secure.

If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can make payment by credit card as a guest user. As part of the checkout process you will be asked to set up a PayPal account. This is optional.

Upon completion of the payment process you will receive a confirmation that your form and payment have bee successful. A PayPal receipt will follow within a day or so.

2019 Kayak Schedule

Join your Hudson Valley and Tailsweeper friends on the water.

This year we have an ambitious schedule as a result of the input we received at our annual kayak planning meeting. There are a total of 18 planned  trips and some possible moonlight trips.  Yvonne will keep you posted regarding these (moonlight paddles).  Most of the midweek trips start at 2 pm. while the weekend trips usually start at 10 am.  Be sure to check this schedule for each trip as times do vary.  We shove off at the times shown for each trip so plan on being at each event a half hour before the scheduled departure time so you have time to unpack and get ready to rumble!!

     Dates, places, times, and description are noted below.  Trips are usually a go if it is sunny, cloudy, or a little bit of rain.  They are cancelled if weather is not conducive to paddling!  Make sure you have the proper equipment to paddle. Life jacket a must.
