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.
Back in January of 2011, we started hosting a seminar series that not only focused on paddling activities such as fishing and camping but also offered basic lessons and tips on where to go. The seminars were conducted at all three stores, typically on Sunday mornings, by both ACK staff members and invited guest speakers.
