For the past several years AW has produced a “Women’s issue” of their journal. Check out the July/August 2009 issue (page 32) featuring a profile on Mary. Besides seeing the many different ways you can spell our last name, you’ll get to learn a bit about Mary’s beginnings in the sport, wild water racing, exploration and her path toward becoming one of the top instructors in the field.
If you’re not currently a member of AW please consider joining. AW really does a lot of work toward boater access issues as well as pushing for recreational releases when hydro projects come up for relicensing.
