Girls at Play Summer Tour 2010 Recap!

Girls at Play Summer Tour 2010 Recap!

What a summer!  The Girls at Play Summer Tour traveled up and down the East Coast visiting retailers and kayak schools in NC, PA, VT, Canada, VA, WI, GA and KY.  Over one hundred women treated themselves to a day, weekend or week of kayaking — some events even included yoga, massage and wine and cheese!  The energy and inspiration we received from the women we met continues to fuel our passion for paddling and adventure. Not to mention the personal growth, confidence and joy we witness and share.

We want to thank our sponsors for providing the latest and greatest demo gear for the ladies:  Kokatat Watersports, Dagger Kayaks, Shred Ready Helmets and AT Paddles. This year there was added excitement thanks to the generous donation of an Eddy paddle from AT Paddles worth $329.00!  The paddle will be raffled off and one of the lucky women who participated in select Girls at Play Summer Tour events will win!  The raffle will take place August 31st, so stay tuned….

We also want to thank our hosts:  Green River Adventures, Riversport, Northeast PA Kayak School, Madawaska Kanu Center, Brown Ledge Camp, Appomattox River Co, Bearpaw Outdoors, The Outside World and River City Canoe and Kayak!  Below are some photos from the events.  Enjoy and see you tour!
