Small Craft Builders' Rendezvous

Small Craft Builders' Rendezvous
Saturday, June 22, 2013

If you love, build, restore, use or want to learn more about small wooden watercraft, don’t miss this opportunity to be surrounded by like-minded folk! There will be live demonstrations, workshops, vendors and special guest speakers. The Canadian Canoe Museum will be open and free to all participants. A special dinner to celebrate Ted Moores’ 40th year building and sharing his passion for boats will be hosted by Nick Offerman. Nick is an accomplished woodworker, Bear Mountain canoe builder and actor with a wicked sense of humour who stars on NBC’s Parks and Recreation. He will have you laughing with his thought-provoking insights into the world of wood, hand tools and boat building.

If you own or have built a Bear Mountain canoe or any small craft please bring it along to show. We’d love to have you participate in this year’s rendezvous!
