Switch to the "E-Paddler" and Get a CPA Patch Free!
For the remainder of this paddling season every CPA member who switches to E-mail delivery of the PDF version of the Paddler from the snail mail Paddler will receive FREE an embroidered CPA Logo Patch. The attractive 3.5" diameter patch, designed by CPA member Barbara Foley, can be stitched or ironed onto your favorite jacket or shirt or used to adorn your office. Ordinarily, the patch would sell for $4 a copy.
Why are we doing this? Each month we mail more than 400 copies of the Paddler to CPA members at a cost of about $400. We'd like to divert some of those dollars directly to paddling activity and reduce the time and effort involved in folding, stapling, labeling, stamping and mailing the paper copies.
What's more, recipients of the "E-Paddler" get the pictures in living color, and often stories will have direct links to web sites. And finally, the chances are you will get it sooner and certainly less mutilated!
To make the switch, to receive the CPA Newsletter via email today! Your patch will follow in short order!
