This past summer, Badger Paddles had the opportunity to work personally with the Premier of Ontario, Mr. Dalton McGuinty.
This custom ordered paddle (see top photo) was a special gift to be signed by the Premier before returning to Badger for finishing. The end result was really spectacular and the lucky recipient of this paddle now has a true collector's item.
But the story doesn't end there...
Just this past week, we were surprised to find a personal letter in our mail box from the desk of the Premier reading:
Dear Mike,Thanks so much for all your help with the paddle you produced so quickly for me. It is gorgeous.The guy I gave it to loves it. Which is all that counts.Very Best Wishes,Dalton
We, at Badger Paddles, were honored by this opportunity and recognition and are truly pleased to find the intended recipient was happy with the result. We really dug the project too!
Thanks to all the staff at the Premier's office that were so helpful in making this project happen so smoothly and on such a short time-line, as well as Ms. T. Sobers and Mr. McGuinty - himself - of course!
