Later this week the Bardstown Boaters will be launching Kickstarter’s first ever whitewater park project.
The evaluations are done. The cost estimate is complete. $400,000 will bring Kentucky it’s first ever whitewater park.
We are placing this project with Kickstarter as test. We feel that this local project may not find a national base of funding, but it can still receive publicity through the website. Who knows, maybe it will catch fire and we make history as the first project if this kind to receive funding on Kickstarter.
Things to remember are that if we do not receive the full $400,000 through Kickstarter, all donations will be returned. It’s all-or-nothing! If after receiving the funds and the project hits a snag before going into construction, then we will return the funding as well.

I’m excited to see what kind of response outdoor adventure projects might receive when crowd-sourced to those who care about them.
See you on the river!
