Been having a blast at all of the Texas Boat Shows and just wanted to give you a peep at our booth for each one. Our stores work overtime to man both the shows and their respective locations, and always have a blast in the end seeing old faces and meeting new ones.
This year the city of San Marcos, Texas was proud to host the 2012 Kayak Polo National Championships at Rio Vista Park. The Austin Aquabats put the event on and they dominated the competition as well.
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”.
I stopped on my way to San Marcos to get a sandwich last week and was thoroughly enjoying my lunch when another guest of the sandwich shop asked me if the kayaks on that car out there were in fact mine. I acknowledged that they indeed were.
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.
Ahh, demo days, a paddler’s dream come true. It’s not often one gets the opportunity to demo over 75 kayaks and attend a variety of outdoor educational clinics in one day and in one place.
Editor’s Note: Several weeks ago, the Federation of Student Anglers (FSA), an organization that offers competitive fishing for kids and young anglers, held a fishing tournament in New Braunfels.
Editor’s Note: Beginning this August, all 3 ACK stores will be hosting periodic “Ladies Night” seminars and special events.
