Canoe O happened there in 2009. Aims organized an event, and it was pretty fun if I recall correctly. Running through the trees with an 18'-6" canoe to avoid paddling round a peninsular is particularly memorable!

Oh that's great! I bet it was a lot of fun.

I'm pretty sure there was another canoe-O there as well, because I remember showing up prepared to paddle with Sam Levitin, except each of us thought the other was bringing a boat. I found out that I could rent a canoe at the campground, so I went up there and did that. I think I paddled it in one direction to the start/finish, and managed to get it on my car without the benefit of a rack the other way, but I forget which way was which.

Also, we may have through this before, but it's very unlikely that you were rowing a canoe. They rarely have oarlocks.

The fact that paddlers and rowers are both bothered by the lack of differentiation is plenty of reason not to change anything.

I'll remember that the next time Ian Smith talks about how many points his company baseball team scored. :-)

Paddlers are forward looking. Rowers are backwards ;-)
