Canoecopia 2007 (March 9-11)
by admin ~ March 5th, 2007
An event that draws canoe and paddle enthusiasts from across the country is set to begin this Friday in Madison, Wisconsin. Hosted by Rutabega Paddlesports, the outdoors expo includes an extensive exhibitor list of popular manufacturers of paddle gear and boats, and a full weekend of speakers. Some topics include James Raffan on the Life of Bill Mason, Justine Curgenven on her award winning film “This is the Sea 3,” presentations on the Northern Forest Canoe Trail and Waterkeeper Alliance, and numerous other speakers on filmmaking, wilderness trips, boat making, repair, safety, paddle skills, wilderness cooking, photography, and more. The Canoecopia Website has more, including directions and the full speaker schedule. I’ll be there the whole weekend, and I hope to see you there as well.
