CSKNet is a network rather than a club, that is we don’t have membership fees, a constitution or elected officers.
We use e-mail, this web site, facebook & Sporty for contact with ‘members’.
There are organised trips and an annual training weekend. These are all free.
‘Members’ give their time to provide CSKNet services.
To become a member you need to provide your e-mail address to the notice sender or to the Club Contact.
Advertising is limited to members selling their gear, the occasional sale or new shop opening so that you know where to get the latest gear.
Other than “acts of God” (see the film staring Billy Connolly, “The Man Who Sued God” ), you are ultimately responsible for your own safety. If conditions are such that you are not willing to paddle solo, be prepared to not go, or to turn back. Always let those paddling with you know your decision.
