Note: As reservations have already been made for dinner, we have limited ability to accommodate more guests. Please talk to Alex at the booth if you would like to attend.
Canoecopia is the world’s largest paddle sports exposition, and the Charles L. Sommers Alumni Association, Inc. will once again be staffing the Northern Tier booth!
Please consider helping us out by volunteering to work for a few hours during the weekend event March 10-12, 2017 at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison Wisconsin.
Requirement: Prior to volunteering, you must be a member of the Charles L. Sommers Alumni Association, Inc. (SAA). Membership is open to all individuals 18 years of age and over (as a past staff member or affiliate) at the cost of $10. Complete an application online to join.
There will also be a dinner on Saturday, March 11th in Madison, Wisconsin for alumni of Northern Tier. Local alumni of Philmont Scout Ranch and Florida Sea Base are also welcome. If you do not plan to volunteer, but attend the dinner please contact us to RSVP.
Exposition hours are: 4-9 pm on Friday, March 10th, 9 am to 6 pm on Saturday, March 11, and 10 am to 5 pm March 12th. We’ll schedule at least two volunteers at the booth at all times. Volunteers will be provided “talking points” for prospective participants.
You’ll also have plenty of opportunity to attend numerous educational seminars as well as see the latest canoeing and camping gear from over 200 vendors.
