Since I am a new kayaker I am super excited about the event. We are planning on arriving at 4pm on Friday. I for sure want to speak to the kayak rack presenters. We are hoping they can answer our questions and recommend a perfect system for me and my Jeep.
I also want to check out the paddle companies - I have a paddle but I am feeling the need to get myself another paddle! LOL
Clothes is also on my list - I am hoping that there will be quality kayaking clothing available to check out.
I guess you could say my card will be tired by the end of the night!
Make sure to check back for pics about the event and also about my treasures I
find at the expo!
If you go to Canoecopia on Friday night I will be the crazy lady with the wild gray curly hair checking out everything and acting like a child in a candy store!
Hope to See You There!
