November is a busy month for me. I'm off to Ohio to speak at the PaddleSport Conference and at the end of the month I'll be speaking at the Explore Outdoor Adventure & Travel Show. And in between I'll be speaking for the Hamilton Naturalists' Club. The Hamilton show should be awesome. It's a fundraising event for the club and it includes a spaghetti sauce cook-off, live music, silent auction, door prizes, a raffle for a Nova Craft canoe and a very funny presentation by yours truly. Mark your calendar for Saturday, November 19th.. The event is being held at St. Paul's United Church - 29 Park St. W. Dundas. Tickets are $25 and everyone is welcome.
