“More Than A Paddle” Summer Photo Challenge

This paddle plants one tree. What can your paddle do? Forest Edition Canoe Paddles by Badger #morethanapaddle Summer Photo Challenge

“More Than A Paddle” Summer Photo Challenge

The Backstory

This year we were thrilled to launch our new line of Forest Edition canoe paddles. There are a few factors that sets these paddles apart from our customary offerings.

Firstly, we carefully select only the blanks with the most interesting and unique grain patterns for these special edition canoe paddles.

Also, every Forest Edition paddle includes a distinctive laser engraving of an artistic “paddle tree” that matches the paddle style and species of tree the paddle was built from.

All Forest Edition canoe paddles by Badger are given our renowned oil finish and, of course, include a Badger Paddle Sock.

But finally, and most importantly, for every Forest Edition canoe paddle purchased, Badger will plant one tree!

Considering these paddles plant trees, so to speak, it got us to thinking about all the different applications and uses for canoe paddles (other than propelling a boat). And so, a new summer photo contest was born...

#MoreThanAPaddle

Summer Photo Challenge

Cherry Badger Forest Edition Canoe Paddle - This paddle plants one tree.

WIN A CHERRY FOREST EDITION CANOE PADDLE

AND PLANT A TREE!

Have you ever used your canoe paddle blade as a flat surface to fillet a fish on shore? How about as a support for a tarp or fly? Or maybe you’ve incorporated a couple of paddles into a sail or lashed onto your canoe as a makeshift yoke? Perhaps you have even used your paddle to fashion yourself an impromptu air guitar…

If you have used your Badger canoe paddle as a substitute or temporary solution for a problem and then went back to using the paddle again as intended, then this contest is for you!

Starting June 21, 2022, we challenge those who dig the water to show the world all the different and creative uses for canoe paddles (besides the obvious application of paddling, of course!).

Post your photos of your Badger canoe paddles in (unusual) action and you could win a beautiful cherry Forest Edition canoe paddle – and plant a tree!

Don’t worry if you are not on social media. You can always email your entries to us if you prefer.

Some terms and conditions apply. See full contest rules and details below.
