Got Volunteers????

Nathan from AW will be the main contact for the AW-Colorado Stewardship Tent at Paddle Fest May 18-20 2007, Buena Vista Colorado.

He needs some volunteers to assist at the booth with ticket sales and general information throughout the 3 days.

If you are coming to Paddle Fest and have some time to help AW, please contact Nathan at [email protected]

You will be compensated with some cold beer tickets and admission to the evening activities. All of which benefit AW too. Thanks for the consideration.

This weekend will also kick off the KEEN Foundation raffle to benefit it's partner American Whitewater. This summer we will be raffling off TWO custom Dagger Kayaks - A Nomad 8.5 and an Agent 6.2 - with all of the proceeds earmarked for AW's Colorado Stewardship Programs. Each will feature custom graphic work by Dagger as well as a few nice touches we are working on to truly make these one of a kind.
The raffle will start this weekend at Paddle Fest, where tickets are available at the AW booth, and will continue through the paddling event season here in the Rockies. More details will be forthcoming shortly.

Raffle Ticket Prices are as follows:
1 Ticket - $6
3 Tickets - $15
5 Tickets - $20

As added incentive, anyone who signs up for a NEW American Whitewater membership as well as purchasing raffle tickets, will recieve one free extra raffle entry.

So support AW by joining if you aren't alredy a member, and while you're there enter to win one of these great kayaks.

Looking forward to a great weekend at Paddle Fest and all of the other awesome activities that those guys and gals have put together for our benefit.
