In an effort to make the membership process greener, we are now confirming membership renewals by email only for both RICKA and BVPC.  Once you renew, you will receive an email indicating that your membership in RICKA or both RICKA and BVPC (if you joined both) is updated through March 31, 2018. The BVPC will not be sending anything separately.


The email will serve as your membership confirmation and "membership card" (for RICKA or RICKA/BVPC if you joined both).  We are no longer sending a paper copy of the letter or membership card.  Be sure to bring an electronic or paper copy of the email when shopping at retailers offering member discounts or when attending any BVPC paddles to verify your membership. Check the newsletter each month for any special offerings from these retailers. You can also find a list of discounts at


All of that said, we still have lots of decals and carabiners to give away, so please join us on the water so we can hand them to you personally! Thank you for supporting this new process and for helping RICKA and BVPC continue their roles as stewards of our environment!
