If you are indecisive about signing up as a competitor for Midwest Freestyle Championships, look at this line-up of great prizes and giveaways. Of course you can spend the weekend as a recreational paddler but you are not eligible for prizes. If you haven’t registered yet, e-mail me (Julie Walraven) at and I will e-mail back the form. has been down since Thursday.

Prizes for the random drawing all competitors eligible (REC boaters are not eligible)

  1. Jackson Kayak of your choice, winner must pay shipping.
  2. Kayaking gear donated by Midwest Mountaineering,
  3. Kayak gear donation from Bearpaw Outdoor Adventure Resort
  4. Whitecap Kayak – Lake Superior Sea Kayak camping trip for 2 people.  One night (two days kayaking) FREE.  Apostle Islands or Shoreline Waterfall Region near Porcupine Mts. Must join an existing trip, or form a group with paying participants.  Additional nights can be purchased at usual rate.  Guides, food, gear, instructions all included.  Participants bring sleeping bags & clothes. Check out for additional details on trips.
  5. Mountain Khakis – 4 pairs of pants.
  6. Joe Jacobi is donating a weekend in one of his cottages.  As a way for mid-western people to jump start their kayaking season on 2010, I’d like to donate a weekend at our Ocoee Nights Cottage that can be used for a Friday/Saturday night stay between January 8, 2010 and May 17th, 2010. The only weekend I need to hold onto (black out) is one weekend in April (usually mid) when a 100 mile mountain bike race is in town. Other than that, I extended it far before the first Ocoee release in case interested paddlers wanted to use the Ocoee Nights cottage stay for paddling the Tellico (less than one hour away) or even for a great mountain bike weekend in the Ocoee area in January/February – usually very nice mountain biking temps – more comfortable than riding in July.
  7. Gear donation from
  8. Bonus!!! Wausau Area Event’s Area Director, Leah Alters, has provided tickets for all competitors, recreational paddlers, and volunteers to get into the Big Bull Falls Blues fest for both Friday and Saturday night (located walking distance from the camping area).
