Canon triggers fierce display from 'War Canoe' crew

The sight of a well-armed photographer prompted this fierce display from members of the Bethel Outing Club Monday. They were celebrating Labor Day with an outing in Sonny Hastings’ 26-foot wood-and-canvas canoe (dubbed the “war canoe” by paddlers) on Songo Pond. The canoe holds 10 people. Seated from front to back (and from left to right) are, bow: Andrew Siegel; first seat: Kirk Siegel, Rose Goldberg; second seat: Sam Weafer, Sarah Weafer; third seat: Rachael Goldberg, Sophie Racine; fourth seat: Tom Delucca, Jonathan Goldberg; stern: Tim Carter. The real work came in transporting the craft from Hastings’ barn in East Bethel to Songo Pond. Jeff Parsons of Bethel Outdoor Adventure provided the wheels and volunteers the muscle.
