Lake Superior goes Greenland

Thursday, 19 July 2007
Lake Superior Goes Greenland I just got this poster from my friends at Naturally Superior Adventures. As some of you may recall, I was one of the guest speakers at it in the great summer of 2006.

They just sent this email and I discovered my little face (and boat) on it! Click on the poster to see my smug little face. :)

They also sent along a little letter about this year's event. If you are looking for a great Greenland paddling symposium, you need to check it out.

Hello sea kayaking fanatics,

In just over a month's time we at Naturally Superior Adventures will host our second annual Greenland-style Paddling Symposium here on Lake Superior at the mouth of the Michipicoten River. Dates: Friday, August 24-Sunday, August 26. Price: $275 (all inclusive). Save $50 if you bring your own boat.

We hope you will attend.

In this all-levels paddling festival you'll learn to paddle the old school way with a skinny-bladed Greenland-style paddle. No experience is necessary. We provide handcrafted white pine Greenland paddles to use for the weekend. It's Canada's only Greenland-style paddling festival.

This symposium features much of the same attributes of our other festivals: Small class sizes (maximum 50 participants), expert instruction (from Doug Van Doren, Bonnie Perry and Robin Cook, among others) and great meals and entertainment (a house concert with Mark Dunn and Clay Rooster). What's more, we're also organizing Naturally Superior's own Greenland-style games-a traditional paddling "triathlon" including a sprint race, rolling competition and hunting with "live" targets.
