"The Commodore's Cruise" Raffle of 1984
by John Rich

From inside a musty old box of club documents from a storage room, comes a folder from 1984 containing papers for a "Commodore's Cruise" fund-raising raffle. Tickets were offered for $1 each, and about 2,600 tickets were sold. The prize was either a luxury 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 this raffle concept again, for the curiosity of club members, and to preserve them as part of our club history.
