"There has never been a greater need for society to unplug and reconnect all at the same time. The PaddleInThePark contest was created to remind people of the many rewards of getting outside, from our health and well being, to supporting our parks and wild places. What better way to do this than with a chance to find a handcrafted (Badger®) paddle, hidden somewhere in parks across Ontario? Hopefully this will encourage more people to get Out There. The contest runs until September 15th or until all the paddles are found – which ever comes first."Starting on Friday, June 28th, 2013 there are 6 (six) Badger® Canoe Paddles (hidden by Hap Wilson, Kevin Callan, and Preston Ciere) along undisclosed portage trails in Algonquin, Temagami and Killarney
