Friends in the Open Space council, and Stream Team are trying to get out notice of two stolen canoes, near St Louis.
Help A Trip Leader Find His Boats
Please take a look at this message from Joe Brinkmann:
"Both of my canoes were recently stolen from our barn in High Ridge. Iíd love to get the word out to as many people as possible to see if anyone can help find them. One was a very old Grumman that my dad bought in 1948. The other was an Old Town that my kids painted yellow, green and blue. I have pictures of both if someone has any ideas.
If I canít find them, Iíll be needing to buy a couple, so if anyone has something for sale Iíd appreciate knowing."
Please share this email and contact Joe Brinkman at 314.406.5071 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any information!

.You can try to get them listed @ this site but I cannot vouch for the effectiveness of finding them or getting them back.. U can bet it was local kids who stole them ...watch on Craigslist in yer area and surrounding areas for them to pop up 4 sale. Or You can post that a description on Craigslist...making it hard for the thieves to sell them.
The aluminum my get sold for scrap.|

Advise the scrap yards of the stolen aluminum canoe.
Good advice, but ...|

... unfortunately, scrap metal buyers tend to be as dishonest as they come, and not at all likely to report stolen material (they make money on the recycling regardless of where the customer got it). I've heard that around here, it's not at all uncommon for them to gladly hand over cash for shiny, never-used manhole covers, and the ONLY way a person could get their hands on new manhole covers is to steal them from construction sites.
Sorry about that.............|
