The Orkney Sea Kayaking Association is organising get-together on the third weekend in August.
It's a mini-symposium and Mary Saunders is trying to drum-up some kayakers to attend.
Mary tells me: "It will be on the 15th and 16th of August this year and as well as some nice paddles around Orkney, I have used my charms (a big stick) to persuade Donald Thomson and Nige Robinson to come up and do some coached sessions too".
From the booking sheet, these sessions seem to be £20 each, with up to four a day.
"Numbers are pretty much limited to about 30 folk and priority will go to our friends in Shetland. Camping is very basic but the venue is near our sports centre which has showers, a jacuzzi and sauna etc etc".
