The Prizes

souris river canoe

Grand Prize (randomly drawn) - 17' Souris River Canoe

The Quetico 17 has become recognized as the ultimate wilderness tripping canoe. If you paddle the wild places in Canada and the U.S. you will find dozens of them. That’s no accident! These canoes are ultra-light, incredibly tough and very stable. They handle like a dream under any load conditions. When you get caught paddling hard into the face of a headwind, you’ll be very glad you’re paddling a Quetico 17. It rides high on the waves and takes in very little water over the gunwales, a trait you’ll be sure to appreciate if you’ve ever paddled one of our competitors “lowrider” designs.

The paddles, made by Don and Spencer Meany, are named after great Canadian explorers and voyageurs such as Alexander Mackenzie, Simon Fraser, William McGillivray, George Simpson, David Thompson and La Verendrye. They all paddled through Quetico and Don Meany says “it is our way of keeping an aspect of Canadian history alive”.
