West. PA Solo Canoe Rendezvous 2016

A reminder that what will be the 9th annual Western PA Solo Canoe Rendezvous is on for June 3/4/5 (Friday-Sunday)2016 at our Regular Home at Cooper’s Lake Campground, Portersville/Slippery Rock PA. A deliberately informal gathering of solo canoe enthusiasts and afficianados in particular (but tandems are welcome too…) We have the best of the current canoe manufacturers present with demo models for you to try out; a selection of classic canoes that you just don’t see that often; some FreeStyle paddling instruction and Interpretive demos; a Candlelight paddle over the night-darkened pond if the weather allows; and much else. An event dedicated to the goal of immersing oneself in canoes in all of their variety and diversity for 60-some hours to the exclusion of all other reality. What’s not to like? The event itself is free, though our host campground assesses a fee for camping and day-trippers. Information is available at our website wpascr.org (click on “message board” – anything with 2016 in the thread title will contain current info) and on our Facebook page (“Western PA Solo Canoe Rendezvous”). You can “like” us there, but you’ll like us a whole lot more in real life, so come be with us. See you there…
