Needed: Canoe/Raft Paddles

Hey everyone,

Josh from the National Sports Center for the Disabled here. We are desperate for canoe/raft paddles. If you have any you would like to donate, please let me know. We can provide tax documents for your write-off.

We are also taking canoes right now and looking for K-1, OC-1 boaters to volunteer.

If I had any of the stuff you're looking for I'd gladly contribute to your efforts to get disabled boaters on the water. I hope your post generates the gear you're needing!

One could reasonably do a river cleanup on Clear Creek, resulting in "refuse" that includes a few yellow and blue paddles (I've paddled past one below the narrows at least 3 times). Strictly speaking, that's not at all ethical to keep those paddles. One could, however, go get said paddles, take them to their respective companies and see if they'd be willing to donate a few as a result. Thoughts?
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.

Hey Hojo,

My next move is to start reaching out to raft companies for gear. We need wet suits too. I might do that come winter.

Thanks man!
