TSI Trulle skal på tur til Vengsøya med ferga for å paddle ut til en strand som trenger vår oppmerksomhet!
We plan to paddle on Vengsøya May 5th-6th, 2018 to be involved in national beach cleanup day and have some fun. The goal is to accommodate as many people as possible so please join the Facebook event and follow this link to answer some questions https://goo.gl/forms/579XEuqCgSZl77W32
In brief the plan is to meet at the Trulle boatshed/naust, drive to Skulsfjord on Kvaløya and take the ferry to Vengsøya. We will then paddle around Vengsøya to a beach where we will clean up all the junk that has washed up there as part of the Norwegian national beach cleanup day. Then there will be time for grilling, fun and exploring. Then depending on interest we can either paddle back and take the ferry back on the saturday evening (departing around 6pm) or we can camp overnight at the beach on Vengsøya and take the ferry back on sunday. A group of people may also choose to paddle all the way back to Skulsfjord.
Note that as paddlers we are subject to the goodwill of the weather gods so it is possible that the plan will need to be changed or the trip may be cancelled in the event of bad weather.
Since we have the ferry option the paddling distances will not be too long so the trip will be suitable for novice paddlers, but it should not be your first time in a sea kayak. Again please remember to fill in the form so that we can organise the logistics
Join us at UiT just before the TSI annual meeting for some pizza as we pre.game to win over money to buy our boathouse. We will vote on a proposal which allows us to used long saved money to buy and improve our boathouse for use by all TSI. This proposal includes revamping the current structure, adding other aquatic groups and enjoable ammendities like a jacuzzi and sauna. Please register to be a TSI member before Feb 9th and show up to the meeting on March 9th to vote for our proposal.
Flashy title for a meeting for more than just paddlers who want to put together a proposal for purchasing the boathouse that Trulle now rents from UNN. This proposal will include plans to upgrade the boathouse for kayakers, and other aquatic groups and to add amenities for all TSIers like a hot tub , sauna and grilling spot!
Trulle will hold its annual meeting for all members on Wednesday, January 24th at 1900 at UiT, room TBA.
Please join us to decide the future of Trulle! Pizza will be provided!!
Items to be added to the agenda should be send to morgan.lizabeth.bender@gmail atleast two weks before. An Agenda of the meeting will be published one week prior.

Trulle will be holding a technique course in Sea kayaking together with Ishavets kajakk. The Technique course is at the intermediate level and we recommend ample paddling experience (i.e. Våtkort and training) prior to taking this course. This course will be held out at Sommarøya and will span the whole weekend.
