Raffle Prize Details

Holy crap we have some amazing raffle prizes lined up! Like, I don’t even know how to describe it. 

We've got a FREE all-inclusive, week-long kayaking expedition in Ecuador with Small World Adventures! Or how about a new Yakima Rack so you can keep your funky smelling river gear out of your rig? Or a $300 Suunto Core watch with an altimeter, barometer, thermometer, compass, and GPS? Or a solar-powered gadget charger from Goal Zero so you never have to worry about battery power in the backcountry again. And what about all the money we’re raising for the non-profit organization First Descents? Earthfax Engineering in Salt Lake City is going to make a matching donation for every dollar we raise up to $2,500 so you can automatically double the money you donate. You can’t even get those kinds of odds in Vegas.

We’ve really seen some great players in the industry come together to pitch in for this as well. We’ve had great local gear shops and outfitters like Rendezvous River Sports and Teton Whitewater in Jackson Hole, Gear:30 in Ogden, and Wasatch Touring in Salt Lake City throw in some prizes and the Swiftwater Safety Institute is offering a free whitewater rescue course. We’ve had major paddling brands like Jackson Kayak, Liquid Logic, Kokotat, Stohlquist, Astral, Snap Dragon, Jack’s Plastic Welding, WRSI, NRS, and Shred Ready donate gear for the raffles as well. And great all around outdoor brands like Salomon, BlueHouse Skis, Petzl, Mountain Khakis, and Smith Optics have signed on as well. I just don’t think it gets any better than this.

So come on out, even if you’re not planning to paddle. Come win some sweet gear, have some food, and hang out with fellow paddlers.
