Mostly I'm just posting this to make all the buzzards jealous, but it would be cool if we could get even more paddlers to show up. There is a river festival happening on the Slave river July 31 - August 3 in Fort Smith Canada. The event is aimed at beginners, to try to break the "experts only" reputation that the Slave has, but there is plenty of water to keep advanced paddlers busy also. There will be races, a rodeo, all kinds of shennanigans.
For more information, check the local club website:
