Ballard Elks Paddling Club – BEPC

RobCasey.2016.elks.rack-3379

In 2016, the Ballard Elks established the Ballard Elks Paddling Club (BEPC) to create a community for club members who enjoy paddling from the club’s Shilshole Bay location.

The BEPC is open to any Ballard Elks member in good standing who is interested in paddling – SUP, kayak, outrigger canoe, surf ski, or prone – at any level of experience, from curious to adventurous. The club offers paddle craft storage options to members, access to a members-only Facebook page to connect with paddlers, as well as social gatherings, which include meetings and group paddles.

The BECP meets monthly every third Thursday at 7:30 p.m. in the Ballard Elks Lodge Hall, with the exception of summer and winter holiday months. Please see the schedule below.

We welcome anyone interested in joining!
