Please note that our crowd funding appeal finished on the 31st of July 2015 and crowd funding bundles are no longer available. The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales 2nd Edition is scheduled for publication in October 2015 and you can pre-order your copy now through the Global Paddler online store.
Global Paddler has less than 20 copies of the first edition of The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales left in stock. We are now working feverishly to publish a second edition in September 2015 and we have some fantastic rewards to offer you for your help.
The first guidebook that we created for the state was Paddling around New South Wales which contained trip descriptions, colour photographs, and maps for 78 destinations. This sold out twice before it was replaced by the 1st edition of The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales which contained 101 great kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddling destinations and enhancements like trip locator maps, GPS coordinates and colour coded sections for easy reference. The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales 2nd Edition will be better again with 140 destinations and additional improvements such as kayak fishing advice and recommendations about where to eat, drink and stay the night.
We need to raise $20,000 to produce The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales 2nd Edition and we would love you to be part of the crowd. For a contribution of just $50.00 you will receive:
- Competition entry: 1st prize: Wilderness Systems Tarpon 100 kayak from PaddlePro worth $1,100, 2nd prize: Sea to Summit Quest PFD worth $169.95, 3rd prize: Sea to Summit XT Cart worth $159.95; 4th, 5th & 6th prize: Your choice of a Trek PFD, Ocean Racer PFD or Rewa PFD from Ultra valued at up to $159.00.
- Goodies: Your very own copy of The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales 2nd Edition with a handwritten personal thank you note inside… value $50.00;
- Friends: Eighteen months of Global Paddler membership… value $60.00; and
- Fame: Acknowledgement of your contribution printed in every copy of The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales 2nd Edition… priceless.
This means that at the very least you will get a copy of The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales 2nd Edition and one and a half years of Global Paddler membership for less than half price, and you might even win a fantastic prize.
If you would like to be part of the crowd but would prefer to have a copy of The Paddler’s Guide to Victoria or The Paddler’s Guide to Queensland instead of The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales 2nd Edition, all you need to do is let us know when you jump on board. You will still receive everything else listed above.
Please note that this crowd funding bundle is only available until the 31st of July 2015 and the competition is only open to Australian residents. Prizes may not be able to be delivered to some remote addresses, in which case they will need to be collected from the nearest regional centre.
