Mike Peterson will present the third event in Fairbanks Paddlers’ Spring Slideshow Series on April 19 at 7:30 p.m. at the Blue Loon.
Mike paddled Wisconsin’s Sugar, Rock, and Pecatonica Rivers and Turtle Creek before moving to Alaska in May 2016. In his first summer in Alaska, his perspective changed as he transitioned from the lazy, winding rivers of his midwest roots, to the wild and scenic rivers of Alaska. Mike’s summer paddling adventures took him to the Chena River, 40 Mile, Hungry Hollow, Gulkana, Rock Creek, Birch Creek, and Tangle Lakes. From winter pool sessions and playing Epic Kayak Ultimate to discovering Alaskan wilderness waterways, Mike will present images and share cultural differences and experiences paddling in Alaska as compared to Wisconsin.
Admission is free. Donations are encouraged to cover club expenses. All ages are welcome; however, the Loon requires anyone under 21 to be accompanied by their OWN PARENT. Come early to eat, drink, and visit with other paddlers.
