Recruitment (how to join)
People often ask how to qualify to join our team. Mostly, you have to have a pulse. A high level of physical fitness is desirable, but really, who's kidding who here? This is America 2011, and everybody's out of shape (except us). If you can actually lift a paddle that'd be good. Smokers and hardcore alcoholics are welcome, but if you bring it on the boat you have to share.
If you'd like to be on the A-List team, on the other hand, requirements are a bit more stringent. Paddling experience is not necessary, but a degree of physical fitness is. That, and a willingness to learn and to try hard, is all that you need to bring. New paddlers are welcome to come out during our regular practice times to give it a try to see how you like it. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Oh, and changing your name to Steve will help.
