I have a opportunity to take over a large group that is geared towards backpackers. I am a little hesitant to do it even though I feel I have enough experience simply because this was going to be the year that I was going to really work on my kayaking skills. As it stands, if I take over this group, I will be spending a large portion of my free time running events and trying to get the group up off the ground and running consistently. I will also have to incur a charge of 12$ per month but I can likely make that back by charging a small fee per event as other groups do. But I feel like this will take away from the kayaking I really wanted to do this year. Actually, both things sound great and I want to do both but there is really only so much time during the weekend to do stuff and I only have so much energy. I have been doing a Wednesday night paddle with my paddling partner so that is a plus. Paddling and exercise. I can't wait for it to move back to Thursday night though. I need to sit down and think about the logistics of all this and whether I have the time and know how to do it and how much help I might need and will be able to get.
