CASKA Sponsors are listed below. You can become a CASKA sponsor for $25/year if you offer a 10% discount on retail products to CASKA members, or $50/year if no discounts are offered to CASKA members. To become a sponsor visit our membership link.
Sponsors are encouraged to join the CASKA Yahoo Group and they are welcome to post there. Sponsor postings should be limited to no more than twice a month, provided that those posts are timely (i.e. a class, a symposium, a sale). Otherwise, evergreen posts (not timely) should be every other month. We appeal to the general reasonableness of vendors not to overwhelm our members with ads even that often. Unique opportunities -- e.g. surf class today! -- could always be posted.
Sponsors can also post selected events to our calendar. Please limit these postings to highlights. Sponsors are encouraged to post links in lieu of lengthy listings. Sponsors should send calendar requests to firstname.lastname@example.org.
CASKA reserves the right to review this policy if members complain that they are being overwhelmed by commercial posts.
CASKA thanks the following paddlesports retailers for their sponsorship:
