Silverfish for the Rivers, 2009 Benefit Paddle

Silverfish Paddlers, a lively group who participate in DRBA outings, is sponsoring "Silverfish for the Rivers, 2009 Benefit Paddle" on Saturday, June 27th from 9:00 a.m. -- 4:00 p.m. to benefit DRBA.

Paddlers will float on the Smith and Dan rivers in Eden, stopping at designated stations to draw foil-covered "coins," marked between $1 and $1000. The boat with the highest "loot" wins first prize of $300 in real money. Other prizes will be raffled or awarded for special coins. We'll have T-shirts, lunch and entertainment as well! We need your support for this event!

Here's what you can do:
  1. Sign up to help with the event—check-in, check boats off the river and tally coins, staff a station along the river, clean up after the event, etc.
  2. Donate prizes for drawings—coupons or gift cards from local restaurants and businesses you patronize, new items appropriate for use in hiking or paddling, or the always-welcome CASH!
  3. Help promote the event among your friends and family.

For a registration form, see the event web site,

To volunteer, please contact Robin Light,, or 336-627-6270.
