Why you should join USPS / KPS:

Membership in the USPS/KPS can be a very rewarding experience.  First and foremost, we make boating fun!  We have many interesting activites such as GPS geolocating runs, and on-water scavenger hunts.  There are a variety of in-depth courses geared to improve your boating knowledge and skills.  These courses are only available to members.  Taking a course with fellow members gives you an opportunity to not only learn from the instructor, but also to learn from the experiences of fellow boaters.  As a member you may participate in the district and national meetings to learn from people in other areas.

Some of the more specific benefits and opportunities afforded members of USPS / KPS include:

  • Opportunity to attend interesting dinner meetings with feature speakers/presentations.
  • Opportunity to have more fun on the water.
  • Opportunity to make lasting friendships.
