NRA Freedom Days at Bass Pro Shops- Mesa, AZ

Well it seemed like just last month when we rolled out a brand new event for 2015. Oh wait, that’s cause we did! And while we are this roll of awesome and new events, let’s keep things going with our NRA Freedom Days here at Bass Pro Shops in Mesa, AZ. The NRA Freedom Days will run from July 20th through August 2nd. On the weekends we will be having special activities. I mean the last weekend of July is the last chance to catch our Family Summer Camp, but while that comes to a close things are about to go off with a BANG!

The NRA (National Rifle Association) is one of the oldest organizations in the United States and is focused on protecting and preserving one of our oldest rights. Because of all that they do to help ensure this heritage gets passed down through the generations, we here at Bass Pro Shops are more than happy to do whatever we can to help them! That is what inspired us to create the NRA Freedom Days.

During the NRA Freedom Days we are going to be “fully loaded” with specials, savings, seminars and giveaways! We will have: 2nd Amendment Savings on firearm purchases*, Free Plano Gun Case with purchase of any handgun $300 or greater*, Triple and Quintuple Extra Reward Points on purchases of select products* and on the weekends of July 25th and 26th and August 1st and 2nd we will have some awesome and educational seminars. There will be free handouts for those who attend!*

Saturdays:

11AM- 3 Gun Competition Basics

2PM – Accessorizing your MSR

3PM- Women and Self-Defense

Sundays:

2PM- Choosing the Right Home Defense System

3PM- Gun Safety in the Home

On the weekend of July 25th and 26th we will also have our Daisy BB Gun Shooting Range going and seminars focused for the younger generations. Parents/Legal Guardians will have to fill out a waiver for participants of the BB Gun Range that are under the age of 18.

I love that a lot of these seminars are going to focus on subjects that we have not really ever covered at our store. With the trends that are happening in the firearm industry as well, I think that these are spot on! Especially the last two for each day. I strongly believe that everyone should be entitled to the knowledge and know-how to protect themselves and their families.

This is an event that you do not want to miss!

-Giddy-Up!!

*Restrictions Apply. While Supplies Last. See Store For More Details.

Family Summer Camp – 2015 at Mesa, AZ!

Well I guess it’s about that time again to start marking down the ol’ summer-fun calendar and making arrangements to bring the family on down for Family Summer Camp here at Bass Pro Shops – Mesa, AZ! This is one of our larger events we hold every year and it is definitely one of the most fun! If you thought the Gone Fishing Event was intense, you have no idea what is coming our way! It is a month long, four days out of the week, five hours each day FREE and FUN FRENZY!! We have numerous activities for the younger generation to participate in!

It is awesome! I mean where else can you take the kids for several hours that is air-conditioned, full of activities and has taxidermy? This is a great way to beat the Arizona heat and encourage kids to get passionate about the outdoors! AND IT IS ALL FREE!!!!

For the Workshops, we have NINE different topics. Each seminar will start on the hour and go for about 20 minutes. After the seminar is done, kids will receive an activity book with special questions.

After they figure them out, bring the book back to the Workshop Area and show the Associate your answers. If you got them right you earn a pin for that specific workshop!

Fly Tying Workshop

 

 

Father's Day is quickly approaching. If you are looking for a way to spend an afternoon with your Dad - we have the perfect workshop for you!

 

 

On June 13 at 3 pm stop in at our White River Fly Shop - located on the first floor right beside our Fishing Department.

 

 

 

 Greg, our fly expert will demonstrate and help you tie your own Light Cahill Fly and a Stimulator Dry Fly.  If you need instruction on how to cast or where to fish Greg or one of our other friendly, knowledgeable White River Fly Shop Associates will be happy to help.

 

 

Treat Dad to an afternoon of learning how to tie his own flies and then take him fishing ! Fishing is not only about catching fish but spending time with others you hold dear and building memories that will last a lifetime.

Gone Fishing Event 2015- Mesa, AZ

So on May 25th, the Go Outdoors Event came to an end here at Bass Pro Shops- Mesa, AZ. And what a great time it was! We had some awesome seminars, amazing demonstrations and sampling, fun and free activities and much more! Of course one of the biggest turnouts was for our Catch and Release Pond! I have said it a number of times before, but this is one of the coolest things we do at our store. We set up an above-ground pond and fill it full of fish for the next generation to catch. And a lot of the time, the fish they catch here are the very first ones some kids catch! Well for those of you who missed it during the Go Outdoors Event, do not worry! We are going to be holding a brand new event later this month!

On the weekend of June 13th and 14th and the following weekend, June 20th and 21st we are busting out our Gone Fishing Event! And it is going to be loaded with the ever excellent FUN and FREE activities! Here is the game plan below:

Catch and Release Pond – Noon to 5PM both weekends. As usual, participants under the age of 18 will have to have a parent/legal guardian sign a waiver. This past event we had some awesome and big ol’ catfish in our pond. One of them was at least eight pounds and we even had two albinos! (The infamous El Gatos Blancos!) And what is cool for this event, is that kids who catch their first fish ever at our pond will get a “First Fish Certificate”!

Free Photo Download- Noon to 5PM both weekends. Kids can take a picture with the fish they caught that day! We will also have our replica bluegill for kids to hold if they do not want to catch a fish or don’t catch one.

Get Ready, Get Set, FISH! Seminars- All four seminars will be held every day of the event.

11AM- Gone Fishing- Best local destinations for group fishing

1PM- Fishing- The Reel Thing. Choosing the best reel for adults/kids.

2PM- Fishing- Anyone Can Do It! Best equipment for taking friends or family fishing for the first time.

3PM- Go Fish- Batteries Not Required. Info on how to make fishing fun for kids.

Rod & Reel Donations- Remember way back when for the Spring Fishing Classic when we held that HUGE rod and reel trade in! Well on June 22nd these will be donated to a local non-profit organization.

Video Game Trade-In – In an effort to help kids get outside, we are going to have a video game trade-in. Bring in any old video game on any day during the event and receive a $5 OFF Coupon on a new Rod/Reel Combo that is valued at $19.99 or more. One coupon per customer and coupon will expire at the end of the day on June 21st.

Fishing 101 Booklet- We will also have a number of free fishing booklets designed for the beginner fisherman.

Gone Fishing Door Hanger- For the first 100 customers to visit the Fishing Department each day of the event, we will be handing out free “Gone Fishing” door hanger signs.

We hope to see you there!

-Giddy-Up!!
