2016/09/15 Badger Paddles and Portageur.ca, Paddle In The Park Contest (No QC)

So What's This All About?

On the surface, the Paddle In The Park Contest is a chance to find a hidden paddle in a park, somewhere in Ontario. But that’s just a small, incidental aspect of this summer-long event. The contest was conceived as way to re-enforce the idea that being in Nature is truly a rewarding experience – or like what we call being “Out There”. To do this, we listed at least 9 rewards then added another: a tangible representation of all those rewards in the form of a handcrafted Badger® canoe paddle and other gear and prizes.

People had a lot of fun following the contest and looking for clues, because when each paddle was found we drew a random winner for a prize package. 2013 was a huge success, with 2014 being even bigger and better with more paddles, and more paddle hiders. In 2015 we opened up the contest to even more outdoor enthusiasts by way of the Paddle Points Contest, where people uploaded camping photos for a chance to win a Nova Craft Canoe and even more gear and prizes. This year, we have even more rewarding surprises planned - all in celebration of nature. So grab your maps, your gear, and get “Out There” this summer. You will definitely be rewarded for it!


Find The Paddle portion of the contest officially begins at 12:01 a.m. EST on July 1, 2016, and ends at 11:59 p.m. EST on September 15th, 2016 or when all the paddles have been found and claimed – which ever comes first.

There is no official entry form for Find The Paddle portion of the contest.

The winners of the Find The Paddle portion of this contest are those who first take possession of the hidden paddle. There can only be one winner per hidden paddle. “Find the Paddle” Contestants may find and claim more than one paddle in the “Find the Paddle” portion of the Paddle In The Park Contest.*****

There will be 4 paddles hidden in total and are identified by an official Paddle In The Park Contest wooden information tag.
