Well, everyone, Gauley River Season is officially underway here in West Virginia. And it’s hard to think of a better way to have gotten it rolling for ACE fans and friends than the Great Gauley Blog Off.
We asked you to give us your best shot and post your own blog entries. The categories: Rafting with famous people, favorite Gauley Guide, or Gauley-flavored poetry. And you? You answered.
Of course, with any contest, there are winners. So let’s get right to it. Want to know who won? Here were the top scoring picks:
- Grand Prize- Nathan Tennison, Ode To A Fluffy Box Of Kittens Nathan wins a Reverse Riverside Overnight raft trip for 2 on the Gauley (Approximate retail value: $580).
- Second Place- Tina Christy, New River Schooling Tina gets a Gauley Camp Package for 2 on the Upper or Lower Gauley (Approximate retail value: $410).
- Third Place- Justin Sieb, Raging Whitewater (haiku!) Justin haikued (?) himself into a Gauley Raft Trip for 2 (Approximate retail value: $350).
Congrats, y’all! And thanks to everyone who submitted, read the posts, or otherwise participated in some way shape or form. It was pretty great seeing what you had to offer up, blog-wise.
Same time next year? Tentatively, yes. See you there. Um, here. In the blogosphere.
