I'm sure it would be OK if you just showed up too! :-) Description: Come hear about advanced local kayaking trips and expedition paddling in British Columbia and Alaska. On March 13, 2010 Conor Flannery launched from Seattle, Washington on a 2,500 mile solo paddle to Anchorage, Alaska that ultimately provided medical supplies to thousands of patients in need. The goal of the expedition is to raise $20,000 for MedShare.org to ship one ocean freight container filled with surplus medical products to an under-resourced hospital. These medical supplies and equipment, collected from local and national hospitals and manufacturers that would otherwise be discarded to landfills, will go to serve patients without this basic medical care. Conor has performed 13 round trip ocean crossings to the Channel Islands and has paddled 275 miles in Glacier Bay National Park in Alaska. After the lecture we can go to the Lake Union Grill across the street for Nosh n' Brew! I consider this an opportunity to do some menu research! Yeah!
