    • EVENT DETAILS - Lake Massabesic:  We will paddle along the shoreline of this section of the lake.  Since 1874, Lake Massabesic has served as the drinking water supply for over 159,000 people in the regional Manchester area. The lake appropriately gets its name from a Native American word meaning "the place of much water" as the lake covers over 2,500 acres in Manchester and Auburn, NH.  As Lake Massabesic is a pubic water supply, boat access has the restriction of NO contact between the boater and the water.  Wear boots if you need to access your boat from the shoreline.  Use the kayak boat ramp to enter the lake without human contact to the water.                                                                                           

    As a NH Ski Club member, I will make sure I have the right supplies & equipment to keep myself safe while participating in this event along with any guest(s) I choose to bring.  I will keep up & stay with the group(s).  I will release my emergency contact information to the Trip Organizer and provide any guest(s) name and emergency contact information prior to the paddle.
