On March 8-10, 2019, the largest consumer paddlesports event in the world, Canoecopia, takes place at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wisconsin. Jeff Adler, John Browning, Sherri Mertz, and Dick Silberman will all be at this event staffing the PaddleSafely/American Canoe Association table as well as giving several presentations and pool demos on a variety of topics – many safety-related.
If you have yet to purchase important paddling gear such as a wetsuit, drysuit, or life jacket, there is no better place on the planet to do so. You will never see a larger selection that you can see, feel, and try on in any store. On top of that, you get a discount! You can also find safety gear such as throw bags, tow belts, and helmets.
If you already have your gear, take the opportunity to attend one or more of the over 180 seminars that will take place over the weekend, and don’t forget to stop by the PaddleSafely/ACA table to introduce yourself.
Hope to see you in Madison!
