Keeping the silent sports community informed and self propelled.
Congratulations are due to the winners of Silent Sports' prize drawing conducted at Canoecopia, the paddlesports expo in Madison, Wisconsin, March 9-11. More than 400 people entered to win a Bending Branches wood canoe paddle, made in Osceola, Wisconsin, and a selection of books on biking, hiking and skiing in the upper Midwest.
The paddle was won by Dave Clemens, a long-time reader of the magazine, in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. Sharing the books -- titles, authors and an illustrator of which we've featured in Silent Sports -- will be shared by John Ryder of Sparta, Wisconsin, and David Olson of Cambridge, Illinois.
I recommend the books in the drawing:
