Herb Kai is the winner of the second in the series of three boats to be given away. Herbs name was drawn and he is the proud new owner of a Hurricane Tracer. It's a nice one. We'll have to get a picture of you and that new boat. Herb,...enjoy.
Congrats to Gay Fawcett!!! She is the winner of the first of three boats to be raffled off this year. The Olympic Kayak Club sends a special thanks out to Eddyline for working with us on this and helping us to make this raffle possible as well as The Seattle Police Foundation for helping us with the paddle. Gay, we love ya and have fun with that new boat. For those that didn't win, there are still two boats left so this thing isn't over by a long shot.
From a San Juan County News Release...
Beginning May 1, 2010, boaters will need to obtain a permit and attend a brief training session before launching any boat from San Juan County Park. The training, which covers the laws protecting killer whales and other marine wildlife, and the laws and guidelines for responsible boating within the San Juan County Marine Stewardship Area, was developed in association with the Whale Museum's Soundwatch program.
Congrats to Dean Wilson of West Tacoma. His name was drawn and he is the final winner of the year. Dean takes home Neckys powerhouse touring machine, the Looksha Elite. He paddles with a group of friends in the South Sound area. The new Necky is a very welcome addition since his boat is getting kind of old and he was looking to upgrade. Dean was very happy, and very impressed with the boat. He also said he may be looking to join the club now that he is aware of us. Necky, it was a great year and we thank you so much for your support of our event.
