Winter is a beautiful season which offers up lots of fun activities, but for those of us who love to be on the water it can be a time of serious paddling withdrawal. To help ease this pain and to boost your excitement for the coming paddling season I am bringing the Reel Paddling Film Festival to Fredericton where I will be showing the top paddling films of the year. There should be a good mix of sea kayaking, white water kayaking, canoeing, SUP etc. The movies are full of great scenery, music, and culture. The films provide a glimpse at some places you have never been before and may never have the opportunity to travel to.
If this sounds interesting to you then check out the show at MacLaggan Hall on UNB campus on March 26, 2011 @6:30pm. You can purchase tickets in advance at Reid's Newsstand for $10 or at the door for $15.
Oh yeah, and there will be some great paddling related door prizes to be given away!!
Well it was a good show. Probably around 170ish people could have fit another 100 or so.
Best Films were Halo Effect, And Mammalian was very awesome There was some stuff I really was not into, really something for everyone though. Probably about 3.5 hours long in total. There was also a Announcement that a few American Whitewater association instructors would be coming up to give a course on white water rescue I hope some one will cross post the dates on this web site. And if nothing else there were a ton of Lady's there I would say at least 50% were Girls, Its funny the only people I run into on the river are a bunch of greaser stinky guys like myself:) I'll go next year if they put it on again.
