Fall 2012 Outfit Your Adventure Gear Giveaway

We’d like to officially announce our 2012 Fall Outfit Your Adventure Gear Giveaway to take place on our Facebook page beginning Oct. 22nd! This will be like our previous 2012 Summer Outfit Your Adventure Gear Giveaway but with different prizes fit for fall! Here are the details: Each week for five weeks, visitors that like our Facebook page and fill out an entry form will have the chance to win a product. It will be a different product each week including (in order of giveaway) a Lodge Logic 8 quart Dutch Oven with a copy of Camp Ducth Oven Cooking 101, a pair of 31′ Talic Sea Horse Stands, a GSI Bugaboo Camper Cook Set, an Astral Ronny PFD and the grand prize a Kelty Trail Ridge 3 Tent with a footprint.

So How Do You Enter?

There is not much to it. Each contestant will earn one entry by ‘liking‘ our Facebook page and completing an entry form, but can earn an additional five entries each time a friend enters by following personalized shared links. Basically, the more you share, the better your chances of winning.

Be sure to stay tuned to our Facebook page where we’ll make the official kick-off announcement!

Oh So Social!

I’ve been spending time trying to figure out how to utilize all of our social media networks to better communicate with our customers, vendors, friends and partners. Fact is, our biggest challenge we face is making sure we keep them all up to date. While Facebook may seem to be the end-all be-all social media network, there is so much more out there. After re-evaulating our collection of social media networks it became apparent to me that we really need to organize it all and make it accessible from one place and that we will. In the meantime, I thought it might be beneficial for me to share all of them with you here. Check it out and expect more soon. Be sure to bookmark them and if you are not already a friend, follower or subscriber or, I encourage you to do so. We do our best to keep our communication informative, fun, relevant and up-to-date! – Roland @ACK
