Commodore's Cruise
Inside a musty old box of club documents from a storage room, comes a folder containing papers for this "Commodore's Cruise" fund-raising raffle.  Tickets were $1 each, and about 2,600 tickets were sold.  The prize was either a two-person four-day paddling clinic at the Nantahala Outdoor Center in North Carolina, or a new $800 canoe.  These documents are being presented here as a place to save them should anyone ever need to research them, for the curiosity of club members, and to preserve them as part of our club history. 

Instead of the ordinary, why not try a weekend of luxury with all of the amenities that the good life has to offer. You will experience the noble life style with a bevy of slaves to cater to your every whim.

This is a completely catered weekend of paddling including gourmet meals, cocktails and aperitifs, evening entertainment, and topped off with a champagne breakfast.

But Wait!!!         That's Not All!!!
You will be reclining in regal elegance at the campsite while we do all the petty camp chores. Your tent will be set up and sleeping bags turned down. And if this isn't enough, a complete photographic record will be provided of this unique experience.

This will be the ultimate luxurious weekend paddle. Your every wish will be attended to.

How can you be the recipient of this marvelous weekend?
