Must-see paddling movie at the LPCA

April 11, 2012 - Morgan Ryan
I’m very much looking forward to checking out Mike Lynch’s movie on April 27 at the LPCA. I know he’s been working really hard on it.

Here’s the press release announcing the event:

Adirondack Lakes & Trails Outfitters announces the kick off of the paddling season with the annual paddling film festival to benefit the Northern Forest Canoe Trail on Friday, April 27 at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts.

Doors open at 6:30 pm and screenings begin at 7 pm. Tickets are $12.00 in advance, $15 at the door and student tickets are $10.  Tickets may be purchased at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts box office (518) 523-2512 or at Adirondack Lakes & Trails Outfitters on Lake Flower Avenue in Saranac Lake (518) 891-7450 or 1-800-491-0414. 

All proceeds from this event go to support the work of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail. This will be the sixth annual NFCT fund raiser sponsored by Adirondack Lakes & Trails Outfitters. 

“The 2012 festival is taking a different twist on the movies we will be showing,” said Steve Doxzon of Adirondack Lakes & Trails Outfitters. “The feature film will be a film by local paddler Mike Lynch. Mike is a staff writer for the Adirondack Daily Enterprise.  Last year, he completed a through paddle of the 740-mile NFCT from Old Forge, New York to Fort Kent, Maine and documented his trip. Mike has put together a feature movie of his trip for this year’s festival. In addition, the NFCT has hooked up with Rapid Media’s Reel Paddling Film Festival to supply this year’s films.” 

Rapid Media's sixth annual Reel Paddling Film Festival showcases the world's best paddling films to audiences in Canada, United States and around the world. The festival inspires more people to explore rivers, lakes and oceans, push physical and emotional extremes, embrace the lifestyle and appreciate the heritage of the wild places we paddle.

The Reel Paddling Film Festival is a film contest awarding winning films in 10 categories. The winners and other shortlisted films are then toured to more than 100 cities around the world, screening for an audience of more than 30,000 outdoor adventure enthusiasts and their friends and families.

Tickets may be purchased at the Lake Placid Center for the Arts box office (518) 523-2512 or at Adirondack Lakes & Trails Outfitters on Lake Flower Avenue in Saranac Lake (518) 891-7450 or 1-800-491-0414.  All proceeds from this event go to support the work of the Northern Forest Canoe Trail.   Join us at the LPCA on Friday, April 27th and support the Northern Forest Canoe Trail, catch up with the North Country paddling community and enjoy some great paddling films.
