2021 Badger Sponsorship: The Winners

And that’s a wrap!

We entered the virtual ping pong balls into the virtual lottery machine, and the very real winners have been selected.  Below are this year’s winners of the mammoth gear haul outlined in the Badger Sponsorship 2021 announcement.

But first, let us not forget the true intended victor of this year’s Badger Sponsorship- the National Trails System.  Every single penny that went into this year’s giveaway goes directly to the Partnership for the National Trails System, a 501(c)(3) that connects member not-for-profit trail organizations and Federal agency partners to further the protection, completion, and stewardship of the 30 national scenic and historic trails within the National Trails System.  Although you, the reader, may not have won a prize package this year, *we all win* as your support for this year’s Badger Sponsorship helps to ensure a vibrant future for our beloved long trails.

In total, you raised $13,854.93 for the PNTS!

Give yourself a well deserved pat on the back.  A well-funded trail system is a happy trail system.

Ok, without further ado, congratulations to:
