In addition to Loki, we would like to thank our good friends Tom and Fred Ducharme whom have all helped in providing the logo for Loki to put to print.  Fred and Tom Ducharme are lifelong artists, and Southern New England residents.

It was put into Tom’s expert hands for some flourishes, tweaking, and final professional touches. You can find them on facebook, or visit Tom’s website. www.tomducharme.com

Wind Powered Productions

The amazingly talented rising videographer Tripp Clemens graciously donated his time ( on a very cold New Year's Eve day ) to wander around Sakonnet Point trying to figure out which little dirt road to take to catch the SUPCleanup crew paddling to the next beach. Back in his studio, he did whatever magic those guys do with music and editing. The result is the incredible Vimeo video on the Mission page of this site, which made it all finally seem real, and set the tone for the trip. No pun intended. Both are fantastic. Thank you Tripp.
