|Our Favorite Geek|
Many people would never believe that our entire IT and Website Development team is Peter, one of the co-owners of ACK. Most of what you see on our site has been built by him. If you haven't shopped in the past couple of weeks you are in for a treat. Your shopping experience will have vastly improved with our new shopping cart feature. Trust me, you will love it!
Peter has a passion for making the website the best shopping experience you will ever have on the web. He loves everything there is about ACK and kayaking. When not working on the website, you will find Peter in the Austin store or chasing his 11 month old son, Jack, around.
If you have any suggestions or recommendations for our website, send them on in. Peter loves to get a suggestion and turn it into a reality.
|Kayakers of the Month|
Tomas, Brian and Derek
Our kayakers of the month follow along with the theme of the newsletter and came to us from Ireland. These 3 friends from Abbeyside, Dungarvan spent 37 days circumnavigating Ireland in sea kayaks.
I came across this fascinating story while researching kayaking in Ireland and was in awe of how cool this trip was. After reviewing their trip itinerary and learning of their online blog I was blown away by the details and adventures they shared. Check out the blog and the pictures from their trip.
The threesome not only had an outstanding trip but they also raised over 15,000 pounds for the Make-a-Wish foundation of Ireland. It sounds like more than one wish came true.
