Joining and Renewing

Welcome to BLSC. 2019 memberships will be emailed to members. The first opportunity to purchase your membership is April 14 at the Spring General Meeting. Please note that the club has discontinued the use of PayPal and will only be accepting a cheque or cash with your membership form. Also the online membership form is no longer available.

  1. When you get the email with your membership form, download the fillable PDF and save it with a unique name to your computer (e.g. Smith family 2019 membership). Then fill it in and print it from your computer - this greatly helps our membership captain as there is no misreading of handwriting.
  2. Bring it to our Spring meeting on April 14, between 1:30 and 2pm. The Spring meeting is from 2-4pm at the Guelph West End Rec Centre. You can also bring it to the Club Opening 9am - Noon on May 4. (Also be ready to help open the club.) Or bring it to the boat sale May 5.
  3. If this is a new membership please email our membership captain Tony Moon ([email protected]) so we can set up a time to give you a key, boat sticker and tour. NOTE - you cannot bring a boat to leave at the club before you have paid for a membership, obtained your key, 2019 membership sticker and ID number and been allocated a boat parking space.

Full membership in 2019 is $250.00 per year which includes one parking spot for a sailboat OR $150 which includes one parking spot for a canoe/kayak/standup paddle board (SUP). An additional sailboat is $100 and an additional canoe/kayak/SUP is $50. Associate membership fee (no boat of any type at the club) is $125. The discounted rate or Early Bird renewal date is May 5. This new fee structure was approved at the Fall 2018 AGM and is the first increase in membership fees since 2011.

You can store your boat all rigged and ready to go. The only restrictions are that we only allow sailboats, canoes, kayaks and/or SUPs and they must be 21 feet or less in length (this is, after all, a small boat club). Once you have joined or renewed you will be given a participation task. To see the Task Descriptions, click here.
