Paddling Film Festival: The 2021 Paddling Film Festival World Tour is now scheduled for September 16th at the Fairfield Inn and Suites in Canton, NY!
Postponed: The 2021 Adirondack Paddling Symposium scheduled for June at Mountainman Outdoor Supply Company in Old Forge, New York has been postponed until June of 2022. As the pandemic continues, the ramifications of trying to hold this event are too profound. The events mission statement speaks of building community, as well as building paddling skills. This would be greatly hampered because of social distancing throughout the event. Meals, meetings, social gatherings and presentations would all be affected in an attempt to keep students and staff safe.
Teaching skills such as rescues, bracing and rolling require close proximity between student and coach. It would be very challenging to give the level of service the students expect, while trying to keep them and the coaches distanced. Therefore, the event will be postponed until June of 2022.
