New Contest

The contest ended when the river reached peak flow, however, the USGS decided to recalibrate the gauge a couple days after the end of the contest. I had already called it when the gauge dropped and I went with the 'paper' posted peak, prior to their readjusting of the gauge.

Greg Osgood from Gunnison won the paddle and should have his paddle today via UPS

I'm putting together a complete boating package for a giveaway this fall:

The package will include the following:

A brand spanking new Jackson boat, either a Hero, SuperFun, or AllStar (winner picks)

Werner Player Paddle, either bent shaft or straight shaft (winner chooses type and length)

Predator Helmet

Lotus PFD (TBD which model)

WildWasser Sprayskirt

Now for the details on how you can win...this is where it's gonna get hard on y'all.


Best Paddling Story w/photos - The story will be judged on content, style, grammar, and appeal by a team of 5 judges, including two who are professional writers and a professional photographer, one who is a numbnuts (me, I'm throwing down the cash for the prizes out of my pocket), and a high school english teacher (that ought to scare you).
