Manager’s Top 30 Rafting Pictures of 2010

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

To kick off the rafting season, I thought we should have a bit of fun.  Last year we took over 31,000 pictures on our daily Badger Run rafting trips!  Over 31,000 pictures!  Each day after the rafts come back after an amazing day on the river it is my job to build picture and video DVD’s for the rafters, so over the course of the summer I spend a lot of time looking at rafting pictures.

After combing through the 31,000 pictures, there are a few that come to mind as being my favourites for one reason or another.  Keep in mind that these are not necessarily the “best”, they just happen to be my personal favourites.  To have a bit of fun I’ve put together a collection of my favourite rafting pictures from 2010 and built a bit of a contest around it to get our Facebook followers involved as well.  I’ll be publishing a new Top 30 rafting picture to our Facebook page every day starting with May 2.  On June 15th all the people who have been tagged in our Top 30 pictures as well as everyone that has left comments or “Likes” will be entered into a draw for one of two FREE RAFTING TRIPS!

So if you or one of your friends appear in one of our Top 30 pictures TAG them!  If you see something you like, click the “Like” button, or leave a comment.  It’s that easy to enter the draw! Good luck to everyone!

You can follow along on our Facebook page, and also on our Top 30 page on the website.

As a bit of a teaser, these are my favourite staff pictures from 2010.  Not part of the contest, but fun pictures just the same.
