Collecting the WCA History - Virtual Meeting

Purpose;  To write down the history of the Wilderness Canoe Association club for future generations.   With all clubs, some members join and some members leave and the clubs history sometimes is lost forever.   This effort will attempt to capture some of our clubs history.

Objective;   The club was founded in 1973.   The 50th year Gold anniversary will be in 2023.    It is hoped to put together a proper History of the WCA paper/book/videos that members can access.   

The plan;  We plan to seek out veteran WCA members who can put together short stories based on their club experiences.   These short stories would be placed in a chronological order which would tell the story of the club from early beginnings to the present.  

One idea is to capture video short stories from veteran WCA members and post them on the WCA YouTube Channel.

We also would like to hear from younger members about what they are looking for? Advise on trips, maps, equipment, etc.

We hope this virtual meeting will inspire some ideas and volunteers to put some ideas to paper or volunteer to be interviewed to tell their story.

We also are looking for people to help with editing some of the video footage

If you have some raw video footage or photos of days gone bye let us know.
