Mother's Day 2012
Do Something a Little Different This Year
Ahhhh Mom, no doubt she deserves it all but many would agree that simply spending quality time with her is all she really wants. This Mother's Day, consider doing something a little different for Mom by giving her the gift of the great outdoors. We're not just talking gear here but more so the experience of the outdoors. Even in your own backyard you can create memories which both of you will cherish forever. Need some ideas? We've got them. Not only from our own personal experiences but also from what our customers have shared with us. Click to continue reading.
Diablo Paddlesports
The Devil Went Down to ACK
ACK boat line up continues to expand with Diablo Paddlesports
You may have noticed our blog post last month welcoming Diablo Paddlesports to the ACK family of brands. We are particularly excited about bringing them on board due to their uniqueness, functionality as an excellent fishing platform and the simple fact that they are manufactured right here in Austin, Texas, making it easy for us to access inventory and replacement parts. You wouldn't know they are newcomers to the paddling industry by the look of their boats, but they are, and they are already turning heads and making headlines in various related publications.

ACK Employee Spotlight:
So Who’s This “Joseph” Guy Anyway?
This month, we focus on one of our newest employees, Joseph Dowdy. You may recognize his name from several articles that he has written and posted in our blog and within this newsletter over the last few months. He is also one of the driving forces behind the promotion of local events and our social media networks. We asked Joseph to tell us a little more about to continue.
