Boat Talk on Wilderness Paddling in Canadian North

Ahoy Mactaquacker:

The Fredericton Power and Sail Squadron (FPS) has invited us to the a  Boat Talk happening on Wednesday, April 11th @ 7:30pm at Renaissance College at the corner of Church and Charlotte Streets.

The April 11 Boat Talk is on wilderness canoeing in Northern Canada by Fredericton paddler Paul Meyer and Fredericton Outdoor Educator Beth Johnston. Paul and Beth will give a presentation on their 2008 Self-Guided Trip on the NWT’s Mountain River. The Mountain River has been called Canada’s best wilderness canoeing river while Paul and Beth are definitely 2 of Fredericton’s favorite paddlers. They just might be among the best Fredericton paddlers, too. It will be a rare and real treat to hear about a 14-day “Self Guided” wilderness trip of this nature. Self-Guided trips of this nature are something a little different and speak to the charactor of Paul and Beth.
