The 2011 Adirondack Technical Canoeing Symposium will again be on scenic Wolf pond in Ray Brook New York, 08-13 July. Registration forms and course descriptions are here. Email or call Charlie at 518.523.9696 with questions. The Symposium has expanded to six days to allow participants to explore the High Peaks area, take organized group paddles or an extended course load.

Mornings focus on Solo coursework; the traditional courses, renamed for clarity. Class work has been refocused on competent paddling with extreme heels and stances in focused courses. Guests can mix courses, taking different sessions, Cross Forward, Reverse, etc, as desired daily.

Tandem coursework occurs in afternoons to allow all paddlers to experience FreeStyle’s duality. Afternoon Special Topics include Paddling the Inside Circle, Sit & Switch Touring, Slalom Preparation, Creek Running 1 and 2, Canadian Style Solo [in tandems] and One on One Tune-Ups with the Instructor of your choice.

The expanded format allows paddlers to pick and choose courses and recreational option. Opt for the day long paddle trip including instruction with NYS Guide Griz Caudle and others of the Instructor corps or spend a day hiking, golfing, shopping or site seeing in the High Peaks. The Symposium is a relaxed vacation opportunity for paddlers and their non-paddling family.
