Finishing up 2011

YMCCC River Reading Course

Our fall season finished with the Y River Reading course on the Ottawa River Middle and Main channels. The weekend was highlighted by both superior paddling and culinary skills. Thanks for the terrific food, gang! As always, a very entertaining weekend.

Festivals and Events:

Andrew attended the Gauley River Fest this year – first time in about ten years! He and a group of advanced paddlers will likely appear in the upcoming Canoe Movie II which was being partially filmed at the event.
