Raffle Kayak Delivered 2020-07-15

On Sunday, July 12, 2020, at the WWALS Annual Member Meeting, Shelby Miller, until that day the newest WWALS Board member (now two more are newer), shook up the box of raffle tickets and, without looking, selected the winner: Dan Bowland, of Valdosta, GA! Shelby called Dan during that zoom meeting, and he was quite surprised.

Delivered

The following Wednesday, Bobby McKenzie, no longer a Board member but still the Chair of the WWALS Outings Committee, delivered the raffle kayak to Dan. Dan seemed pretty happy that one of the five raffle tickets he got was picked as the winner.

Soon we will raffle off an identical Emotion Stealth 11 Sit-On-Top Kayak with Carlisle Paddle, $600.00 value. How can we do that? Well, we bought two at once to get a discount so we could. That was Bobby McKenzie’s idea.

Every raffle ticket not only gets you a chance to win a kayak, it also helps WWALS advocacy, education, programs, and events. So, thanks, Dan Bowland, for supporting WWALS!
