The 2014 Adirondack Canoeing Symposium is on scenic Wolf Pond in Ray Brook New York.  

Email charliewilson77@gmail.com with questions.  For 2014 our Symposium runs six days to allow participants time to explore the Adirondack Mountains.  

Mornings focus on Solo coursework emphasizing competent paddling; extreme heels and stances limited to specific courses.  Tandem coursework occurs afternoons, allowing solo paddlers to experience FreeStyle’s duality.  Afternoon Solo Topics include Paddling the Inside Circle, Sit & Switch Touring, Creek Running, Canadian Style Solo, High Kneel Thrusts, Gimbals and Private Sessions with Instructors of choice.  

Wednesday will be relaxed.  We’ll have a trip, Slalom Races, Dead Fish Polo, an opportunity to try SUP paddling and an Interpretive Recital with a few special topics, but intensive FreeStyle coursework pauses to allow muscle recovery, and we dine at Lisa G’s to rest our Culinary Crew.

The expanded format allows paddlers to pick individualized instructional tracks and combine courses with recreational options. Opt for a day-long paddle trip Monday, Wednesday or Friday with Adirondack Guide Griz Caudle or spend a day hiking, or site seeing in the High Peaks.  The Canoe Symposium is a relaxed vacation opportunity for paddlers and their non-paddling families.  

Hot, cafeteria breakfasts and picnic lunches are served in our community tent Monday through Friday morning.  Dinners are buffet style; provided Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.  Wednesday dinner is Buy Your Own at Lisa G’s.  Paddlers may serve themselves in campsite or cabin, but meals are where announcements are made and group comraderie developed.  E-mail to join the Culinary Crew and earn courses.

 

Reserve cabins at Sherwood Forest by calling Larry or Laura Peryea at 518.891.4400.  Options include one or two bedrooms, kitchens and fireplaces.  Ask about week-long and linen discounts.  Sherwood’s cabin fees include site use, fees apply for those staying off-site.  We will have campfires near the community tent, bring your own folding chair and musical instrument.  Pets are not welcome at Sherwood Forest.  Camping reservations for Meadow Brook DEC campground are at www.reserveamerica.com or call 800.456.2267.  MeadowBrook C.G..allows pets.

The Adirondack [Technical] Canoeing Symposium offers a relaxing immersion in the skill intensive sport of canoeing.  Come fine tune your canoe.

This is a one time, widely broadcast, initial communication and is the only one you will receive without your further inquiry and request.  To receive additional information, course offerings and registration materials, Email charliewilson77@gmail.com.

Hoping to see you on Wolf Pond,
