Once again it is that time of the year when all of the outdoor recreation enthusiasts in Wisconsin flock to Madison. Canoecopia is taking over the Alliant Energy Center from March 7-10th. If you are in the area then I suggest you check it out, it’s like Christmas for paddling enthusiasts.
You can find all sorts of outdoor gear and accessories at Canoecopia. If you need a canoe then you can see Old Town, Bell and our favorite Wenonah. How about a paddle to go with it? Werner, Bending Branches and Sawyer will be there. Packs, food, books, sunglasses, shoes, you name it, if you can use it for paddling then it’s there.
Mike was able to check it out briefly on Friday. He was there for meetings as the past president of the Professional Paddlesport Industry. There’s presentations to attend, demonstrations to watch and plenty of things to see so head on over to Canoecopia 2008.
