17th Annual Maine Canoe Symposium

The incredible Maine North Woods of Camp Winona are the backdrop for the annual Maine Canoe Symposium. The HACC has been speaking there almost every June since 1986. Check out their Web site at and join in. The 17th annual Maine Canoe Symposium last June was made doubly special by the appearance of  John Rugge and Jim Davidson of Great Heart fame. The writerly pair, who also wrote the classic Complete Wilderness Paddler, are a great source of inspiration to many paddlers, including the members of the Hide-Away Canoe Club. They were photographed (below) before giving their evening slide talk on the Hubbard and Wallace saga from almost a century ago in Labrador. It was also interesting to hear something of the story that has evolved about the attempts to make a movie of Great Heart - a most worthy subject. But it seems the travails of Hollywood have stopped it from getting done — so far.

Authors John Rugge and Jim Davidson.
