Calling all fans, followers, and supporters of the Paddle In The Park Contest!

Last year was a really rewarding year for those of us who got “Out There”. So we have decided to piece together a little video montage of last year’s Paddle In The Park Contest (PITPC) and need your help!

If you were a paddle seeker in last year’s contest and are looking to be part of our celebratory contest video and PITPC history, we invite you to send us your wilderness tripping stories and pictures.

We are looking for photos and even short videos of your back country trips while on the hunt for those hidden Badger® canoe paddles to add to our montage.

In fact, if you were a on a canoe trip last year (and maybe didn’t even know about the contest) and just want to show others just how rewarding spending time in Nature really is, then we would love for you to send us your stories, pictures, and videos too!

If your photos, videos or story is chosen, you may see yourself or your tripping partner in our videos, Facebook and Twitter feeds, or on our website. This is your chance to show your friends, family, and the world, that the rewards are “Out There” and they should all be “Out There” too!
