Paddling for Smiles Update

Richard Kohler will be bombing down the Dusi (16 – 18 Feb 2012) with 16 year old Murray Walters from Bishops; tourismZA are taking Paddling for Smiles to the Cape Getaway Show (23 – 25 March 2012) and are planning a Cape Times supplement to promote Paddling for Smiles!


The Paddling for Smiles expedition is coming back hard!

A big chunk of our comeback plan has been finalised – Richard is as fit as ever – and I hope everybody is going to join us for the long haul!!! More to the point, we hope to personally meet you somewhere along the line.

We invite YOU to join us on a unique adventure.

tourismZA have structured the comeback campaign in a way that we hope will engage everybody in their own personal arenas of interest. The idea is to give each and every individual supporter, including sponsors and suppliers an active means of participating in and enjoying the expedition with the Paddling for Smiles team. More than that, we want this to be a two way street where instead of being asked to just keep giving and supporting, we are planning this with you and your participation as an integral part of this adventure – everybody gets something out!

Around every corner of this expedition we have planned something for everybody! When we go somewhere we have planned for you to go with us!

For starters:

tourismZA have just confirmed that the entire Paddling for Smiles expedition (Including sponsored equipment) is going to the Cape Getaway Show. Expedition supporters and outdoor enthusiasts are invited to the Cape Getaway Show, shoot the breeze with Richard and a few celebrity adventurers (watch this space), attend powerful motivational presentations and participate in demonstrations showing how all the equipment works. A huge thanks to GETAWAY! For more info on the event click here

Entry: With our compliments 2 for the price of 1

We’re setting up a Paddling for Smiles EXPEDITION EXPO at the Cape Getaway Show brought to you by Mercedes-Benz Vans. If you are even remotely interested in the world of outdoor adventure this is an opportunity not to be missed. We’re lining up a schedule of interactive demonstrations / workshops where you can physically check out and learn how to use your adventure equipment properly. The workshops will be presented by experts in the field. The workshops range from the best way to use expedition equipment; from flares, to GPS’s, to hand held radios and driving your 4×4. And, of course your surfski! For more info on the event click here

Details will be emailed to you – as always, simply make sure that you are on the SUPPORTERS LIST
