ACK is excited to sponsor the second annual Aqua Olympics, an Austin original event involving a number of off-beat water competitions coupled with a festival on land that aims to be plenty of fun. The Aqua Olympics are associated with the popular music festival FunFunFun fest and are expected to bring close to a thousand in attendance!
Editor’s Note: We are sad to announce that Michael, a valued ACK Austin store employee, will be leaving ACK to pursue his education in Colorado with his girlfriend.
Luke Adams from NRS paid us a visit at our Austin Demo Days back in April and showed off the features of a unique, inflatable fishing kayak called the NRS Pike. Luke covers all the features of the boat including its impressive stability for sight fishing, its portability, and plenty of other built-in features.
Last week I got to step into the Paramount Theatre here in Austin, Texas for the first time and catch the 2012 Fly Fishing Film Tour and to represent ACK as a sponsor of the event. It was a neat evening with many familiar faces.
Kristian Kolflat, Assistant Austin Store Manager, and Andrew Moczygemba, Store Manager in the Houston Store, report on the recent Paddles and Paddling guest seminar. Danny Mongno of Werner paddles visited our Houston and Austin stores last week and shared his 22 years of paddling expertise in a special seminar titled “Paddles and Paddling”.
Every once in a while our stores are visited by expert guests who come to share their knowledge with our customers and staff. This time, we have experienced paddler and Werner Paddles Regional Sales Manager/Field Marketing Coordinator Danny Mongno coming to both our Austin and Houston locations to present his in-store Paddles and Paddling seminar.
It’s coming close to a year now since ACK launched its in-store seminar series. For those that live near one of our stores, hopefully you’ve had a chance to attend one by now.
I’ve been making the drive to Houston to visit our store for so long now that I’ve begun to develop stories and relationships with the towns and sites I see. It’s funny the things I notice and don’t notice while I drive.
We raved about new enhancement and updates to our website in this recent article and through other social media outlets but what about our physical stores? As you may know, we have 3 brick and mortar locations (Houston, Austin and San Marcos, Texas) and are always looking for ways to make your shopping experience a more enjoyable one.
