August signals the end of summer. The Gauntlet came up with seven cost-effective ways to get outside and soak up the last of the sun.
Rafting down the Bow
The University of Calgary Outdoor Centre rents an eight-person raft for $75 and life jackets for $3, chalking up a day of rafting to $13 per person, tax included — not bad for a day on the Bow. Additionally, U of C students get a 10 per cent discount every time, as well as $25 off your first rental. In other words, get three newbies together and the raft is free.
