Joining and Renewing

Welcome to BLSC. 2018 memberships will be emailed to members. The first opportunity to purchase your membership is April 22 at the Spring General Meeting. Please note that the club has discontinued the use of PayPal and will be accepting cheques and 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 2018 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 22, 2-4 pm at the Guelph West End Rec Centre or bring it to the Club Opening 9am - Noon on April 28. (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 a 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, 2018 membership sticker and ID number and been allocated a boat parking space.
  • Full membership in 2018 is $230.00 per year which includes one parking spot for a sailboat. The discounted rate or Early Bird renewal date is May 5. New members who joined later in the season do receive a discounted rate based on when they join. Associate membership fee is $115. Each canoe or kayak at the club is a $25 fee which is for the parking spot on the outdoor rack. This was the same fee structure as for 2017.

    You can store your boat all rigged and ready to go. The only restrictions are that we only allow sailboats, canoes and kayaks 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 job and a maintenance week. To see the Task Assignments and the Task Descriptions, click here.
