2007 Palmer Fest and Single Blade Symposium 4 information and registration is now posted at http://www.rapidmedia.com. Presently there is a PDF download registration form that can be completed and faxed or mailed in, and a secure online form will be up as soon as my web guy gets it up there.
New this year are introductory clinics that build upon one anotherâ€”whitewater kayaking, solo and tandem canoe and women’s-only clinics. This will allow new paddlers (thanks for bringing all your friends) to choose four clinics that have a progression to them, ideal for learning the basics. It is truly amazing how many new paddlers we had last year, almost half had never paddled whitewater before.
WHITEWATER INSTRUCTORS AND GUIDES: Also online is information and registration information for the new Canadian Whitewater Instructor Conference hosted at the Paddler Co-op Boathouse immediately before and blending into Palmer Fest. It is a two-day gathering of whitewater paddling instructors and guides from across Canada with the keynote presentation by special guest and paddling legend Kent Ford. There is plenty more info at http://www.rapidmedia.com.
Have a great weekend. Maybe I’ll see you at the Toronto Outdoor Adventure Show.
