The GSP Raft Trip

GSP 34th Annual "Raft" Trip
June 29th - July 6th, 2014

Friends, family, and fellow GSPs,

Having been involved in the Raft Trip since 1989, I have long worked for positive change in camp life. I now feel that the time has come for me to seek re-election as Organizer. I want to bring the values of our community to the next generation of pigs and make sure that the beer chest remains ever full.

In order to serve the people of Ray's Campground, I have procured an abundant supply of wood and ice free to everyone for a nominal fee of $25 to be paid to me by June 1st. An additional donation of $10 will buy you commemorative campaign token.

A goal of mine is increasing diversity in camp. As our pallets grow ever more refined, it becomes imperative for us to bring new beers, chocolates, bourbons, and other treats for the masses. Please email me or your local camp organizer to suggest new tasting items. Democracy only works when everyone gets involved.

As you know, I have always been concerned about the cost of rafting. I believe there are workable solutions available that will enhance affordability and increase pig participation. With that goal in mind, I'd like to introduce my new proposal, Pigs Against Raft Kosts Exponentially Rising (PARKER). Remember that due to last year’s rain check, prices will actually rise as more people raft. (Prices are subject to change based on the whims of bureaucrats)

Want to get involved? Look forward to events such as Fajita Night on Thursday, July 3rd, rafting on Friday, July 4th, and the Potluck Dinner and campfire family fun on Saturday, July 5th. Hope to see you there!

For this campaign to be successful, it will require a strong and organized grassroots campaign. With that in mind, I am calling on you to RSVP about this year's pilgrimage to West Virginia and the trip down the river. I cannot do it all alone- that's why I'm turning to the people who know me best, and inviting them to get involved in my campaign and help make a difference.

Your early contribution, made payable to "Parker Higgins" will give our race a tremendous boost. Your donation of $35 and an additional $52 per rafter received by June 1st will help me raise the initial funds needed to launch this campaign.

Questions? Concerns? Obnoxious suggestions? I value your input- contact me at to let me know your thoughts and opinions.
