Roni Furst has made a formal agreement with the MNR to publish those brochures that most of us remember from the good old days.

They will appear in book format (rather than as is). This is a cost-recovery-only enterprise on her part, started 4 years ago. Perhaps you saw the copies that she placed at the book table at WCS 2010. The two volumes total about 4 inches thick.

At the moment, she is working only on brochures for Ontario north of the Mattawa-French. If you have old brochures that you would like to lend to her (yes, she will return them), please email her at  . Again, she is working on northern Ontario at the moment so please ask before sending her brochures for the Mattawa, the French and the south.

You can make a real contribution to paddling in Ontario by sifting through those files and telling her what you have available, hey, maybe even please your partner.

SPOT-2 Satellite Messenger
SPOT is a must-have as a backup on any remote trip. It's simple to use and reliable,  one-of-a-kind device that combines GPS technology with proprietary Simplex satellite communication to pinpoint your exact location anywhere in the world. Its capabilities include: sending 911 emergency distress signal; HELP message via email or any mobile device and “I’m OK” email/text message that includes the link to Google Maps, showing your precise location to friends and family back home! SPOT is waterproof to a depth of 1 meter for up to 30 minutes, and it floats.

I also use SPOT on trip close to home, in a non-emergency situations. For example, I press OK to let folks at Paddler Co-Op office know that we finished Lower Madawaska trip so they should but the kettle on a boil for hot soup!

For more information or to buy your SPOT, visit
