To help the club/Garn save time and mailing costs please renew ($125) your club membership before the annual meeting so that you can receive your club membership card (card good for discounts) and club sticker for your boat. All of the information on how to renew is posted at The club strongly encourages everyone to renew their membership with Venmo (preferred since no fees) or PayPal (you don't need a PayPal account and can pay with a credit card) and then just email a scanned copy or picture from your phone of the member renew application agreement to If you have been in the club for 20+ years AND are 60+ years old you can renew as a emeritus member for $25.

Reminder that all members are required to attend one of the two Adopt-a-Park service project every year which are always held on the third Saturday in May and September. The board realizes that not everyone can attend one of the two Adopt-a-Park projects, if that is you go down on your own and ask a park ranger what you can do. When finished fill out a volunteer sheet and email a picture to then give the hard copy to the state park.

The club is always looking for volunteers to serve on the clubs board which only meets a few times a year. If you would like to serve on the club board in 2018 email, board members do not pay dues.
