5th Annual Pedal, Paddle, & Play - Virtual Event

About

Northeast Indiana Water Trails invites you to the 5th annual Three Rivers Federal Credit Union: Pedal, Paddle, Play!

This year’s Pedal, Paddle, Play offers event participants the chance to explore Northeast Indiana’s land and water trails at their own pace, all while maintaining a safe social distance from the crowds of our typical event. Current circumstances have changed the way we're living our daily lives, but the trails still call- Pedal, Paddle, Play is your chance to get out and discover something new, contribute to fund-raising efforts to improve access to outdoor recreation on our region’s waterways, and have the chance to win some great prizes, including a complete kayak package donated by Fort Wayne Outfitters and Bike Depot!

Between May 9 and July 15, registered participants are challenged to snap a selfie or photo of a friend with the Northeast Indiana Water Trails logo in view (print it, screenshot it, draw it, wear it!) while traveling the area’s land and water trails. All that’s left is to post your photos to NEIWT’s Instagram (@neiwatertrails) or Facebook page with the #pedalpaddleplay2020 hashtag...and mention the trail or waterway where the photo was taken. Each post will give the registrant a ticket (up to a maximum of six per each paid registrant) to be entered into the famous Pedal, Paddle, Play prize drawing!

The prize drawing will take place at 1PM on Saturday, July 18th via Facebook Live. All tickets will be entered into a general drawing; winners will be randomly selected for each prize as they are announced. Participants need not be present to win and winners will be notified via email no later than July 19th.

So here are the steps for your chance to win at the Pedal, Paddle, Play 2020:
1. Register at www.getmeregistered.com/3RFCUPedalPaddlePlay! (6) tickets maximum per each paid registration
2. Pedal or Paddle! Get out there on the trails with your family and friends
3. Post to Instagram or Facebook by July 15th! Be sure to tag Northeast Indiana Water Trails, and use the #pedalpaddleplay2020 hashtag and let everyone know where you were
4. Attend the pedal/paddle social on July 18 at Promenade Park, Ft. Wayne (tentative), or tune in to the Facebook Live event at 1PM for the prize drawing (we will announce by July 3rd if the paddle social will be possible or if we be doing the prize drawing only via Facebook live)

The purpose of this event is to encourage the exploration of the water and land trails in NE Indiana, and raise funds for the Northeast Indiana Water Trails to improve access to outdoor recreation on our waterways throughout Northeast Indiana. Funds raised this year will be used to continue the Trail Head sign program for the 87 boat access sites on flowing waters in NE Indiana.

This event would not be possible without the support of our community! Thank you to all our sponsors!!
