Long Island Paddlesport Symposium

Has anyone attended this event? My wife Stumbled into the link WWW.LIPaddlesport.org Its close to my home so ill be checking it out and letting anyone know how it was for next year.BTW its free and it has a great schedule of events.

I made it to the show on Sunday. I attended as many classes as possible and found them informative as well as entertaining. Ill definately return next year. I really do appreciate the fact that it is free and isn’t commercialized however, i hope that future shows will include manufacturers touting their new wares. Ill have to wait for the NJ show in the meantime.

I haven’t gone
But I know Elizabeth Connor, the organizer, from the many classes that I’ve taken with her. She is serious about skills & safety, wildlife, and the environment, so I’m not surprised that there isn’t much commercial stuff there. It’s also a fairly new show, so it may not be too visible yet.

Check out www.getthenack.org for the paddle club that she organized.
