Phil Kast: Volunteer of the Month, Presented by Kokatat

We are pleased to recognize Phil Kast as American Whitewater's Volunteer of the Month, presented by Kokatat!


Phil recently stepped up to improve the American Whitewater iOS App, to help us deliver the rich trip-planning information in our National Whitewater Inventory to your Apple mobile device. The App began as a compelling volunteer project by AW Board Member, Greg Lee, who continues to help out on the project. American Whitewater then secured water safety funding from the US Coast Guard to add funcitonality to the App, for which we hired Duffek Mobile. When it was time to transition the maintenance and ongoing improvement of the App to a volunteer project, Phil offered to help us out! He's already made quite a few significant improvements to the App, and more are in the works.  


As Volunteer of the Month, Kokatat will be hooking up Phil with some world class gear, and we hope you'll extend Phil a hearty thank you when you see him on the river.



Thanks Phil!
