circumnavigating florida

     Ever thought about paddling your way around Florida?  Well Scott Warren has and will have completed the journey before TIPS.  On Friday evening he will share some of the exploits, trials, and tribulations ​he experienced.

His presentation will no doubt generate individual questions and exchanges of tall tales throughout the weekend -- maybe even a challenge or two.
