Birchbark canoe raffle UPDATE

Updating  a post back from in August of 2018...

Paddling friend and Artist, Mike Ormsby  has arranged for a fantastic fundraising raffle of remarkable birchbark canoe. The canoe is in great shape considering it is nearly 50 years old. It is constructed with a single piece of bark (extremely rare) and needs some superficial repair work to new lashings, a thwart and some re-pitching.

Only 100 tickets were being sold at the time, with the draw being held once all the tickets were sold. In order to get this project moving, Mike has now lowered the criteria to just 50 total tickets for the draw. With 42 already sold, only 8 more are needed to proceed. 1 in 50 chance to win a canoe like this are fantastic odds!

Tickets are $100 (Canadian Dollars) each. Payment can be made by e-transfer to bildcanoe@gmail.com or through PayPal.
