Ralph Frese, "Mr. Canoe" of the Chicagoland Canoe Base passed away on Monday, December 10th at the age of 86. He was quite possibly one of the most influential Canoeists in the world. He designed and built hundreds of canoes during his lifteime of all types. He began building canoes in the 50's as an Asst. Scoutmaster on the Northwest side of Chicago. He would work with many Scout Troops building dozens of canoes over the years . With so many Scout troops with canoes he had to have something to do with them all, he founded an annual canoe event that eventually turned into the Des Plaines River Canoe Marathon. Founded in 1958 the event is the 2nd oldest of it's kind. The 56th Annual race will be held on May 19th, 2013. http://www.canoemarathon.com/History.cfm http://www.canoemarathon.com/ralph.cfm
