  • Canoecopia - Madison, WI

    Mar 13, 2020

    I will once again be attending Canoecopia upporting Chesapeake Light Craft. Said to be the largest paddlesports show in North America, it is a great event to see what is going on in paddlesports of all kinds. I usually am out front of the booth doing some sort of building demonstration. I'm not sure what I'll be doing this year, but it is sure to be interesting.
