I went to Lester Pearson College for the weekend to participate in the First annual Pacific Paddling Symposium. This was a great event bringing paddlers from far and wide as well as local. I taught a Greenland paddling and strokes class on Saturday morning and then taught rolling classes for the next three sessions. The campus was magnificent, and it was great to meet so many like minds. On Saturday night we were treated to a preview of James' Grand Canyon video and Ginni Callahan gave a wonderful talk about her voyage across the pacific.
