    Fitz Wooden Canoes are in the Blood

    I didn't take many photos this year, and the ones I did take were shot on my phone. Here are a few.

    I'm sure many other folks have photos to share. Let's see 'em.

    Stunning weather!

    Likewise, but here are a few! Course i am biased and mostly shot the sailing canoes. We stopped for some roadside takeout - fresh bread and jam.

    Well......Kath...just finished viewing your Assembly shoot. I say congrats to you for the character of the work......the classic music pulled me to a memory of Dennis and his profound appreciation for the canoe, your devotion to WCHA, and some great shots of new memories on the green. Just FINE FINE FINE !

    I'm so happy you enjoyed it, Dave. In making a YouTube video, in addition to showing those who couldn't attend a bit of what I experienced, I hope someone runs into it who hasn't heard of the WCHA and is inspired by these wonderful canoes.

    Lots of pix

    My wife, Betsy and I took a bunch of shots at this year's assembly. We have posted a lot of them to her Flickr page. There are two sets.

    General assembly photos are at:
    Paddle By photos are at:

    If anyone wants to peruse shots from past year's assemblies, they are on her page too. You just need to check out the list of "Sets" to find them.

    Loved assembly this year, as always. But this one was exceptional. Kudos to all who worked so hard to put it together and then pull if off.

    Professional Pictures From Man in Wetsuit


    While I was out paddling with Tom Mackenzie in my boat, we were directed by a man who was in the water - and he took quite a few pictures and videos of us. He said he would get into contact with me by the end of assembly, but I never saw him after. Does anyone have his contact information? I am dying to see those pictures!! :)

    Thank you!

    Greg may be able to answer this, if the professional camera man is who I think it might have been.
