Les Stroud and Lake of Bays Brewing COmpany

Les Stroud Productions and Lake of Bays Brewing Company are proud to announce that the two have teamed up to produce a series of Survivorman-themed beers.

“We are looking forward to developing some truly wild and unique beers,” said Darren Smith, president and CEO of Lake of Bays Brewing. “Survivorman is about resilience in nature, and Lake of Bays is proudly based and branded around the frontier and ‘the industrious North.’ It is such a great fit for both of us. We can hardly wait.”

Les Stroud is equally enthusiastic. “Survivorman and Canadian-made, awesome beer by Lake of Bays Brewing. There is no greater match up in the history of civilization!”

The company plans to release the first beer in the Survivorman Series in early 2015.

One of Ontario’s fastest-growing craft breweries, Lake of Bays Brewing Company has four year-round beers, four seasonal beers and a series of limited edition beers. Lake of Bays is the official brewery of the NHL Alumni Association and the CFL Alumni Association.

Innovators in Coastal Tourism Symposium in Grenada

Grenada Innovators Symposium

 

The 3rd Symposium for Innovators in Coastal Tourism takes place in Grenada on the 9-11 of July, 2014 and is designed to highlight the crucial role of innovators in developing sustainable models of coastal tourism.

 

As the world’s largest and fastest growing sector, sun-sand-and-sea tourism poses both challenges and opportunities to those committed to socially and environmentally responsible travel. This Innovators Symposium – which is being held for the first time in the Caribbean – provides a unique platform for participants to meet with those on the cutting edge of innovative coastal tourism and to share accomplishments, lessons learned, and key obstacles in implementing sustainable practices. The participants in this Symposium include hoteliers and other business leaders committed to, or considering new “green” models of coastal tourism, as well as tourism experts from international development organizations, government agencies, non-profit organizations, media and public relations, community-based organizations and academia.

Survivorman – Temagami Helle Knife

Helle Les Stroud Temagami Knife

 

This premium Helle knife designed in collaboration with Les Stroud (aka Survivorman) epitomizes decades of knife making craftsmanship and an extensive knowledge of the great outdoors. The semi-full tang provides the extra strength associated with bushcraft knives. The tang is exposed on the top and pommel end, but is covered by the wood of the handle on the finger side. This protects the fingers from direct contact with the steel in cold weather. The drop point style blade is made of triple laminated stainless steel that provides excellent edge holding toughness and ease for sharpening. The handle has a bit of a finger guard to help keep your hand off the edge when slippery. The handle shape on the updated version of the Temagami allows a better control of the knife when holding in more positions. The Temagami comes with a Scandinavian style pouch sheath retaining the knife securely without the need for snaps or straps.
