    Ken has responded saying "I don’t have a great photo of that repair…but here it is, to the left of the flag socket. The replacement wood is darker than the original."

    ALL BLUES: A pretty blue 1922 Old Town Otca is sail rigged and ready to go on Lower St. Regis Lake at the WCHA Assembly at Paul Smith’s College in New York’s Adirondack Park. All restoration work was completed in 2020 by owner Don Kerr. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #wchaassembly #oldtowncanoe #paulsmiths #adirondacks #stregislake

    Which way now?: Nat Goldberg at Getchell Lake in Maine. Sam Goldberg and his brother had to resort to pulling their canoe through the Getchell Lakes in 2013. They were recreating trips they had done as campers at Darrow Camp. Photo by Sam Goldberg. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #darrowcamp #getchelllake

    Jikonhsaseh, the Peace Queen: Russ Hick’s Carleton Indian Princess model is named after a leading member of the Seneca tribe. "Mom’s and Debbie’s canoe” returned to the water again, about eighty-eight years to the day after this canoe was delivered to Roscommon, Michigan in 1927. And the circle shall be unbroken.

    Chestnuts in the United Kingdom: Chestnut canoes were featured at the Annual Assembly in 2018 and a few have made it across the pond over the years, as evidenced by this photo. Photo by Nick Dennis. #wcha #wchaorg #canoe #woodencanoeheritageassociation #woodencanoe #chestnutcanoe

    A Pair of Beauties: Two canoes built by Tom Anderson on forms at Norfolk Boat Works, Norfolk, CT. He built the 16-foot canoe first with direction from Frank Christinat and Schuyler Thomson. The 17-foot square-back he built mostly by himself. Both are built out of sassafras, with seats, deck, and thwarts of various woods.

    FAMILY REUNION: Bob Berggren reunites three of his Old Towns at a pond near his home in Wakefield, MA. The sailing canoe is a 1920 HW model in CS grade that is 16 feet long with sponsons. The 15 foot long Charles River with sponsons is from 1906 in AA grade with mahogany trim. The third is an Otca which is 16 feet long in AA grade from 1944 but with ash trim due to the scarcity of mahogany during the war.

    This is from Michael Grace, president of the WCHA;

    The WCHA Annual Assembly, normally held in July each year, is a gathering of wooden canoe owners, builders and admirers from all over the world. The 2021 Assembly is scheduled to occur from July 13 – 18 at Paul Smith’s College in Paul Smiths, NY, in the heart of the beautiful Adirondack region. Attendees enjoy perennial favorites such as the tour of notable canoes on the Green, construction workshops and demonstrations, children’s program, annual membership meeting, WCHA Store, Raffle & Auction, and the Paddle-by and Salute. We have an exciting line-up of programs waiting in the wings if we are able to gather safely for the Assembly this year.

    CONTINGENCY PLAN: Because of the uncertainty still posed by the pandemic, a contingency plan is being developed for the first-ever Virtual Assembly. If the in-person Assembly cannot be held safely as planned, members around the globe will be offered a variety of fun and educational opportunities through an online forum. Webinars should include tours of workshops and canoe collections, presentations on exciting trips and destinations, techniques related to canoe building and restoration, camp cookery and more. If we cannot safely hold the Assembly this July, the planned theme of “Solo Canoes, featuring Tom MacKenzie” would be pushed back another year, so that we can enjoy the celebration of these canoes when we are all together again. Stay tuned to the WCHA’s website and social media forums for updates, and watch for information in the Spring 2021 issue of the Wooden Canoe Journal, which will be mailed in mid-May. The WCHA’s Board of Directors is planning to make the final decision about the Assembly in early April. For more information, contact Rob Stevens, Annual Assembly Program Coordinator (robstevens7777@gmail.com), or Executive Director Annie Burke (annie@wcha.org; 603-323-8992)
