#PathOfThePortageur Nova Craft Canoe Grand Prize Winner

Nova Craft Prospector Canoe in TuffStuff™ with Ash Trim - #PathOfThePortageur Grand Prize

#PathOfThePortageur Nova Craft Canoe Grand Prize Winner

We know you 2019 paddle-finders have been waiting a long time for this, although some have been waiting a little longer than others. It’s hard to believe that we started this journey, with Preston, back in July. Yet here we are. And we finally have our first ever #PathOfThePortageur Nova Craft Canoe Grand Paddle Finder Prize Winner!

But first we would just like to thank the really good people at Nova Craft Canoe and London’s Paddle Shop for their very special and generous canoe prize. Without them this contest would not be what it is today. So we truly thank them for believing in the Paddle in the Park campaign!

And the winner is…. !!!

So without further ado, the winner of the #PathOfThePortageur Nova Craft Canoe Grand Paddle Finder Prize is…. Corrie Heintzman! Yay for Corrie!

If you remember, Corrie and her family were surprised by Preston (our Portageur) mid-paddle on their way out from their Canada Day weekend camping trip in Massassauga Provincial Park. You can watch the “live” video below. Little did they know that their little family canoe vacation would turn into such a memorable and rewarding adventure!

So a big paddles up and congratulations to Corrie! No doubt, her husband will be a lot less suspicious the next time he sees Preston! 😉

Better check your email inbox, Corrie! Because you will now be able to build your very own custom Nova Craft canoe – with some limitations, of course. 🙂 – and we can’t wait to see what you choose!

Thanks to all who attempted to find a paddle and congrats to all who succeeded with an official paddle claim. Also thanks to all who who followed along. We hope you had as much fun as we did. (Can you believe we actually got Preston to put on a Badger costume and wiggle his tail?! 😀 )
