The 2015 Paddle In the Park contest has kicked off and there are even more ways to win this year.

"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."

Even if you can't head out to explore the parks, you can still win gear and prizes including a new Nova Craft canoe with Paddle Points!
