    The WCHA has become more active in social media (i.e. Facebook and Instagram) recently as requested by the board of directors. These pictures and captions are also available at http://www.wcha.org/content/social-media-images if you want to see what has been posted but don't have an account on either of those platforms. Most of the images so far have come from the WCHA calendars and the Wooden Canoe journal. Let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks,

    Benson

    A NEW PERSPECTIVE ON ASSEMBLY! This is the 2014 Assembly as it has never been seen before! Ed and Zach Heaton, owners of Above The World Films, flew their Phantom 1 and Phantom 2 drones high above the beautiful campus of Paul Smith’s College and captured stunning video of the breathtaking scenery and the full scope of the Assembly. This image was taken from an early morning flight – go to to see the entire video.

    LILY: Courting canoes are among the most elegant of all canoes, and this one is no exception! “Lily” is a 16 foot Charles River style canoe, from an unknown builder. Her beautiful 52” decks are original mahogany, and she is thought to be from around 1915, as decks this long do not appear in earlier photos from the Charles River area. Members Dylan and Emily Schoelzel, of Salmon Falls Canoe, completed the restoration work in 2012, and Owner Ken Kelly had the pinstriping and graphics work done by Scott Signs of Grandville, Michigan.

    This exercise has produced some interesting perspectives on what sorts of wooden canoe images appeal to people. The summaries attached below show how Facebook users have responded to various things that have been posted over the past few years. It appears that war canoes, courting canoes, white water, all wood sailing canoes, and birchbark canoes may be the most popular. Most of these images were also posted on Instagram and the response there was quite different although the overall trends were similar. This is still a work in progress so let me know if you have any questions or suggestions. Thanks,

    Benson
