|2017 Paddling Events - Request for Details||Mr. Canoe - Documentary film/Memories Needed|
|Great Rivers of Chicago Roundtable Discussion||Pecatonica River Feature|
|Guinness World Record Attempt|
With this year’s paddling season drawing to a close – except for some die-hard paddlers that love breaking ice – it is time to think about next year.
IPC has an events calendar where we list all paddlesports-related events we become aware of. This also helps in promoting your event(s).
If you are a paddlesport event organizer, or know someone who is - whether a competition/race, a river cleanup, a paddling festival or any other event involving paddlesport – canoe/kayak/SUP/raft- on a river, lake, bayou (ok – we may not have some here in Illinois) – please forward such information to firstname.lastname@example.org – or to email@example.com
We would like to compile a master list for next year’s events to publish in upcoming newsletters with details (so include background on - and details of - the event). Hopefully, we can also avoid having major events take place on the same weekend.
If you have any questions, please forward these to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you – Sigrid Pilgrim, Director, PR & Marketing
The filmmakers for the upcoming documentary, Mr. Canoe, set to release in 2017, are seeking submissions from any paddler with memories of, photos, or correspondence with the late Mr. Ralph Frese - the subject of the film. If you have any previous contact with Ralph Frese and would like to share your memories, you may send an email to Sigrid H. Pilgrim at email@example.com.
Materials may be sent to the film makers at the following address. Contents will be scanned, photographed, and returned, provided you include a return address. Deadline for submission is December 1, 2016. Any material used in the final film will receive mention in the credits. You will receive a release letter to verify that you are the sole owner of the material and can grant the usage of it in the film.

In early September of this year, advance word was distributed to a myriad of Chicago area organizations of a pending presentation of interest to those concerned with the future of Chicago’s three river systems: the Chicago River, the Calumet River, and the Des Plaines River. This presentation in late September was in effect a report of studies and discussions over recent years coordinated by the Chicago’s Metropolitan Planning Council and directed towards enhancing multiple uses of these urban waterways. In attendance at this Roundtable Discussion were around one hundred representatives from public and private organizations, including “yours truly” from the Illinois Paddling Council. While I doubt that heretofore many, if any, IPC members were aware of this developing study and planning effort, I am glad to report on what I have learned about the intended future of our “Great Rivers.”Read more about the discussion here.
