    What a weekend at Tionesta! There is nothing like seeing thirteen canoes 
    going down a lake with its participants ready to conquer the next 
    bend. Though it was warm, many smiles and a lot of learning was to be
    had this past weekend. If you missed it, you should be kicking
    yourself. Make plans now to attend the upcoming June
    25th-27th trip. There is word the food, view, company, and events

    Lastly, the Events Schedule stated that the 2nd Canadian trip

    meetings, get ready for some fun. Its going to be a
    blast! If you were unable to attend the upcoming
    weekend or trainings held thus far, why not stop by
