Churchill River Canoe OutfittersGrand Prize: Churchill River Canoe Trip - guided by Ric Driediger. This is a great once in a lifetime prize with a value of $2700! The trip is scheduled from August 15 to 22 and begins by flying in to Needle Falls. Participants will then paddle and portage a very scenic portion of the Churchill River back to Missinipe, SK. This guided trip includes all equipment, food and Ric's guiding experience. Listen to stories around the camp, and view the beauty of the Churchill River.

Photographic opportunities abound along the entire length of the trip. You may see bald eagles and white pelicans fishing below rapids, moose wading in the shallows, black bears wandering along the shore, and enjoy evening concerts by common loons at sunset. As you trace the path of the Voyageurs, you will see ancient rock paintings of the first inhabitants of the Churchill area, and learn about the flora and fauna that live in this unique boreal wilderness.

Note: This prize does not include transport to Missinipe. The winner of this prize will have to arrange his/her own transport.
