OK, I know this is not a build question, but it has inspired me to start paddle carving, bought the draw knife and built a carving horse. I will keep you posted on my Greenland paddle. In the mean time:
This year is the second annnual Kayak for a Cure in Mississauga and we are auctioning off an Adirondack style paddle. This was hand crafted by Toronto based paddle maker. I met Murat @ MEC Paddlefest in Toronto and he was kind enough to donate a paddle to the cause.
We are doing a blind auction so please email your bids to Ontario@kayakforacure.org, the winner will be announced Sept 18 during the event. And yes, there will be at least two CLC boats there :)
