    I am trying to obtain a copy of the 1934 film, "A Canadian Canoe Demonstration", featuring Reg Blomfield doing some amazing stunts with a canoe. Does anyone know where I can obtain a copy, in dvd or vhs format?

    The page at says that the original title of the film was
    "Canoeing" by Reg. Blomfield. The page at indicates that the Rocky Mountain Canoe Club has a copy. It appears that the British Canoe Union and once offered this as a video but neither of these groups appear to list it now. Please reply here if you find a source since it sounds like a great one to show at the Assembly.

    Thanks, Benson. I do have a request into, and another potential uk source, but so far they have not responded. The Canadian Canoe Museum also has a copy, but none for sale. I'll keep looking.
