After three years, Canoecopia, the world’s largest paddlesports exposition, is back! It’s three days of presentations by paddle sports experts, adventurers, and entertainers and great prices on gear for your next outdoor adventure. Once again, the Charles L. Sommers Alumni Association, Inc. will be staffing a booth for Northern Tier, and we need your help.
We’ll have a booth in the exhibitor area with brochures, videos, displays, and lots of giveaways for kids and adults. The booth is a great meeting place for you and other alumni. We’ll also have talking points to share with prospective participants and seasonal staff.

Dates: Friday, March 11 – Sunday, March 13
Hours: 3-8 pm Friday; 9am-6pm Saturday; 10 am-5pm Sunday
Cost: $15 per day or $30 for the weekend. Discounted weekend tickets are available online for $26 until March 5th. Parking is $8 per day. The SAA may have a limited number of passes for the day you volunteer.
