Print the following forms and take them with you to the put-in:
RMSKC Membership Roster, which you will receive from the Paddling Coordinator prior to the trip.
As a reminder:
Any non-ACA member who attends must complete the ACA Membership Form/Waiver & Release of Liability (adult or minor) and submit the $5 ACA fee.
Any person who has a current ACA membership does not need to pay the $5. However, they must still complete the ACA Membership Form/Waiver & Release of Liability (adult or minor).
There is no charge for land-only guests but they must still complete the ACA Membership Form/Waiver & Release of Liability (adult or minor).
We have to report to the ACA all persons participating in an activity/event in order to meet ACA insurance requirements. Therefore, within five days of completing your activity/event, please email to the Paddling Coordinatior:
If a serious injury occurs, call the ACA insurance company hotline at 1-800-566-7491 (open 24 hours a day) as quickly as possible to report the incident. Also call and inform Paddling Coordinator. After the trip, complete an ACA Incident/Accident Report Form and send it to the Paddling Coordinator immediately as the Paddling Coordinator must forward it to the ACA within 24 hours of receipt.
Thank you for coordinating a Rocky Mountain Sea Kayak Club trip. Please review the Trip Leader Guidelines about planning and executing an RMSKC trip. Contact the Paddling Coordinator if you have any questions or concerns.
Please recall that our Club and ACA policy is that only paid RMSKC members, current ACA members (check the expiration date on their ACA card) or paid guests (one time only) are allowed on Club day paddles, and only RMSKC members are allowed on multi-day paddles. You should be prepared, if necessary, to refuse participation in an on-water event for insurance and safety compliance. Refusing participation is always unpleasant, but you will have the Steering Committee's full support if necessary.
