Summer 2009 Contest – Your Favorite River Video

For those who want to get a start on the 2009 season’s biggest contest, get your cameras onto your favorite river and share it with us all!  The rules will be simple, show us the river, the community it sits near or in, introduce us to your paddling friends and community and give us the tour.  If you can, capture all the rapids, show us what to do, and what not to do … Show us what you like about the river… the drops, the scenery, the weird dog that’s always at the take out… that lady who raises a fist and yells at you while you take out on her land… you know… show it all to us…

Make it entertaining!  Add voice over, comedy, drama, music (preferably a local band) and make sure the town’s folk are involved.  The entire reason for this is to:  A) Check out your river, B) Check out your community.  Take us for a road trip…

Start captureing now if you want, the video contest officially launches January 1, 2009 for submissions and ends at the end of next summer… August 1, 2009!  Upload it to youtube.com or something similar and send it along via the entry form… Better yet, set up a blog at worldkayakblogs.com and post it there for all to see…
