    Paddle Art Contest

    Help us celebrate Algonquin Outfitters 55th anniversary (1961-2016) and Tom Thomson’s 100 Anniversary of his death in Algonquin Park (1917-2017).

    The Paddle Art Contest connects a couple of things in local culture that we love, paddling and art.  We’re hoping to have 100 paddles created for Tom Thomson’s 100th anniversary (did you know that Tom’s paddle was never found?).  To enter the contest all you have to do is visit an Algonquin Outfitters store. There’s a $25 entry fee and for that we provide the canvas for your masterpiece; either an unfinished paddle blank or a rough paddle blank (for carving).  It’s your job to create something unique.  It’s not limited to painting, you could burn an image or design into the paddle, or carve it into something unique it’s totally up to you.  We can’t wait to see what creative designs you come up with.

    Store locations are in Muskoka. Deadline is August 31, 2017.
