The 2nd annual Canoe Rendezvous will be held at Coopers Lake Campground on June 12th, 13th, 14th. The campground is located off 422 before I 79.
As the name implies there is an emphasis on the solo canoe, but all canoes are welcome. Kayaks too. Many on the water activities.
Presentations by canoe manufactures with an assortment of their latest models to try. Workshops on canoe design, efficent paddling, paddle making, ladies only instruction. Live music, vendors, test boats and paddles, full campground amenitys, pick up trips on Sat. and Sunday, and lots of canoe B.S. If you camp you can sign up for the buffet dinner! Sounds like a great weekend for any paddler!
Of course you need more info........ www.wpascr.org

Go to the website listed above and check out some photo from the event and watch a video of the freestyle canoe demo. I would have rolled it trying that!
