    I am trying to obtain a copy of the 1934 film, "A Canadian Canoe Demonstration", featuring Reg Blomfield doing some amazing stunts with a canoe. Does anyone know where I can obtain a copy, in dvd or vhs format?

    The page at http://sports.dir.groups.yahoo.com/group/Free_Style/message/259 says that the original title of the film was
    "Canoeing" by Reg. Blomfield. The page at http://www.rockymountaincanoeclub.org/Members/ClubEquipment.aspx indicates that the Rocky Mountain Canoe Club has a copy. It appears that the British Canoe Union and http://www.suescanoes.co.uk/ once offered this as a video but neither of these groups appear to list it now. Please reply here if you find a source since it sounds like a great one to show at the Assembly.

    Thanks, Benson. I do have a request into suescanoes.com, and another potential uk source, but so far they have not responded. The Canadian Canoe Museum also has a copy, but none for sale. I'll keep looking.
