I didn't go on the moonlight paddle at the symposium this year. I have only paddled in the dark once before, and I got a little bit of an anxiety attack from it. It seems with all of those little lights bobbing around me, and no steady horizon to focus on, I start to feel really tippy. I'm not sure exactly what my relation to the water is. Am I vertical or about to get wet? So this year I stuck around on the dock and took a bunch of pictures as everyone was getting ready to leave for a loop around the lake. This picture is a little dark and fuzzy, because I wasn't using a tripod or a flash. The symposium is a real fun time and there are plenty of characters around. Rob "Rooster" Taylor is here displaying a new battery powered, suction cup, running light system, that he won as a door prize.
