Bill MasonI was very excited to find today that Bill Mason has been elected to the International Whitewater Hall of Fame in the Advocate Category.

He was nominated by Paddle Canada for his many achievements in and outstanding contributions to whitewater sports.

It’s absolutely exciting that the Canadian artist, author, film maker, instructor and paddler is finally represented in the Hall of Fame.  I will always remember watching his videos and reading his books like, “Path of the Paddle” and wanting to run away from home and just go paddling.

You can find the announcement on the Paddle Canada website. The International Hall of Fame Website hasn’t been updated yet but hopefully will soon.
