Kayak & Paddle Board Club
The Kayak & Paddle Board Club is an informal, participatory, seasonal gathering of interested paddlers, kayakers, canoeists and paddleboarders alike.
The Kayak Club plans several events throughout the summer including Open House Tours, a late evening paddle for the Summer Solstice, cleanup of the shoreline, an offsite trip and the Poker Run.
The club also has four sit-on-top kayaks for club members to use on the lake, after a safety class has been completed.
The Club will be touring Lake Parsippany on the following dates:
Hello Paddlers,This paddling season has certainly been different. We sincerely hope you are safe and healthy. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we were not able to hold our traditional kayak safety class but we would like to plan some dates to simply kayak on the lake. Unfortunately, we are not able to lend any equipment to anyone (boats, paddles, or PFD’s) so you will need to have your own. We feel we will be able to safely say “hi’ to each other and still maintain social distancing while on our kayaks. In the event of inclement weather, we will send an email canceling the event on the specific date. Our first date is Wednesday, August 26th. Again, we will be on the water at the boathouse around 6:30, so please join us if you are able and comfortable.
If everyone is comfortable kayaking together, we will choose a few dates in September as well. Please check the website in September for possible future dates.As a reminder, you will need your own kayak, paddle, and PFD. You will also need to be a member in good standing.
Thank you and we hope to see you one the water!
Don Phelps and Mary Ellen Iradi
If you have any equipment to donate to the Kayak Club, let us know. We are always looking for life jackets, paddles, seats and of course kayaks.
Please bring your PFD for all events and your LPPOA badge for all Lake Parsippany events.
