Romaine River Presentation @ MEC
Just a quick note to everyone. Word got out (thanks Rob & Aleks) about our Romaine River presentation from the Wilderness Canoe Symposium and next you know, I got an invitation to present at MEC. Its already getting to be quite the year with presentations, - wow! So if you are free, bored, or like to hear about a canoe trip on an incredible river, come on out the evening of Tuesday March 30th at 7:30PM. I wrote about the Romaine River's fate in previous posts so have a look back if you like to know what is going on. It will be a joint presentation between myself and David Robinson, talking not only about the trip, but a unique set of circumstances that allowed two groups to meet, help each other and eventually become friends. The presentation will be about an hour long with some amazing photos and some great stories. And as a heads up, as most people I'm sure don't know, some sponsors have donated some gifts to hand out. Hope to see you there!
FYI: MEC for those of you who don't know stands for Mountain Equipment Co-Op. As its name states, its a members only co-op (anyone can join for $5) which specializes in nope, not just mountain gear but the whole gamut of self-propelled outdoor activity related gear and clothing - phew! The address is 400 King Street West, Toronto, ON. Their telephone no is 416 340 2667. Here' s a link to their website - www.mec.ca
