"This is Canoeing" to launch at Canoecopia 2010
Friday, November 27, 2009

I finally have a name for my canoeing DVD. I'm not sure why it took so much agonizing over because as soon as Paul Mason said,

"Why don't you call it "This is Canoeing"?"

a lightbulb went on! I'd already thought of 'This is the Canoe' but it somehow didn't have a good ring to it!

Some people will be relieved ( or disappointed?) that the acronym is the very respectable TIC !

The other big news is that I'l be launching the DVD at Canoecopia in Wisconsin in March 2010. I attended this event once before 3 years ago when I launched "This is the Sea 3". I was impressed with the huge scale of it, there were so many stands and people there. At the time - as a seakayaker who had never tried canoeing - I was surprised to see that half of the hall was full of canoes and open boat stuff! Things I knew very little about!

This year, I'll be looking with interest at everything at Canoecopia, on the seakayaking and canoeing stands! The programme isn't finalised yet but aswell as launching the world premiere of "This is Canoeing", I'll be giving some salty and fresh water presentations. I'm excited that my good friends, Shawna Franklin & Leon Somme from Body Boat Blade will be there and we may even all give a presentation about our trip to the Queen Charlotte islands.

Back to now.....I only have 105 days left until Canoecopia! Realistically thats about 70 days left until I need to have finished the editing, graphics and cover! Plus letting customers, shops and distributors know about the DVD!
It's a bit of a tight deadline but I'd like to launch the DVD at a big event at the start of the season, so the gauntlet has been laid down! Editing is going well and the stuff looks great! ( although I say so myself!).

The DVD is being sponsored by "CanoeRoots" and "Rapid magazine". The staff there have just launched new websites which you should check out. They will also be designing the DVD cover for me so thanks a lot to Beth and Scott for that.

Right, back to it! I hope to see some of you there at Canoecopia!

Just talked to Leon a couple of days ago and I am starting to think I should head out to Canoecopia just for fun. What a novelty it would be to be there and not be obliged to work at a stand all day! All the best as you finish up with This Is Canoeing - can't wait!
