U Saved My Ass Contest


Enter your story and win a Hail Mary Throw bag!

Whitewater Research & Safety Institute (WRSI) recently launched the “U Saved my Ass Contest”. WRSI wants
to hear about your close calls and how quick thinking saved the day.

Nominate someone you feel should be honored as the WRSI safest guy/gal on the river. In 50 words or less tell us about a situation that might have happened while rafting, kayaking or canoeing. Sharing your story might help someone else in a similar situation one day. We want to recognize people on the river who made a difference in a safety situation.

We are going to pick the best entry of the week and post it on our Safety Blog and will be choosing a monthly winner. Each winner will receive one of
our Hail Mary throw bags. We look forward to hearing your story.
