Please join us for a social hour featuring members  from the Montezuma Wildlife Preserve and New York State Parks and Recreation.  They will be here to answer any questions you may have on planning that family vacation in the outdoors.  Find the park that best fits the age group going, as well as which hiking trail is short or long to accommodate any family member.

You can spend a lot on a hotel room this summer, or you can rent a cabin, campsite, RV and travel to a State Park.  New York State has so much to offer, and lets face it this past winter was a tough one.  Can't afford to take a vacation?  How about some hiking?  From Montezuma Wildlife to any one of the State parks,  they offer you a wide range of activities.

Close by is Montezuma Wildlife Preserve.  Operated by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service.  The preserve is designated as a national natural landmark.  It is one of the best examples of undisturbed swamp woodlands.  With over 240 species of birds on the refuge along with 43 species of mammals, 15 species of reptiles and 16 species of amphibians.  This will keep any child busy looking for them all.  Canoe or hike, look for the Bald Eagles or Osprey, or go to the observation deck.  You wont be disappointed with the fun you can have.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New York State has absolutely the most beautiful parks that give you a large variety of fun.  With 113 state campgrounds, you can work your vacation around your family's needs.  Do you want to swim in a waterfall, tent, RV, rent a cabin?  How about hike a gorge with 200' cliffs and 19 waterfalls.  We have it here in New York State.  So please join us on April 25th from 6-7pm for a social hour with Montezuma Wildlife Preserve and New York State Parks and Recreation as they show you how to vacation without spending a bundle.  Enjoy some snacks for the trail as well as Coco-Cola Life products. The first 100 people to attend the social hour will receive a bottle opener.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In addition to our Social Hour please consider taking the 20/20 Challenge :  Simply pledge to get out and log 20 hours of outdoor activities, or 20 miles of outdoor activities and enter to win a Outdoor package valued at $7500.

Can't make the social hour but you are interested in camping outside?  Please consider attending seminars on Friday, April 24th 6-8pm and April 25th 12-5pm.  Here is a list of the seminars we will have on both days.

Are You a Workender?

This year we have been kicking up our in-store events by a notch (or two)! Previously we held our Dog Days Event for the first time. After the great success we had here in Arizona, and likewise all over the country at other stores, I am sure it will be back next year! And that is half the fun of working here! We hold so many different events for all kinds of people, it is awesome. We just had the Easter Event as well and many people who had never been to our store before coming in for Santa’s Wonderland were back again! But new for 2015 will be the first time we roll out our newest event, The Workender!

What is a Workender? Well, it could be one of many different things. Maybe it is someone who works all week and looks forward to getting outside on the weekend. Perhaps it is an individual who ends their week not on a couch, but out in nature! And it could possibly be that person at work who is always sharing awesome stories about amazing adventures they had! No matter how you define them it is clear that a Workender can’t wait and loves to just get outdoors!

There has been a big upswing in this trend within the millennial age group. Outdoor activities such as hiking, camping and kayaking have been exploding lately! And who can blame them? There is nothing better than having some fun in the fresh air! We here at Bass Pro Shops have always encouraged people to get outdoors, it is what we are all about!

But here’s the skinny on this event. It is going to be April 24th and April 25th.

On April 24th from 6PM-8PM and April 25th from Noon-5PM we are going to have a number of awesome and informative product demonstrations going on! Topics and products will include:

Cooking Down and Dirty- Learn about the simplicity and tastiness of backcountry cooking.

Slumber by Number- Useful tips and tricks for staying comfortable and warm in sleeping bags.

Pack Right- How to properly set up your pack for optimal comfort and load distribution.

Beat the Bugs- Keep bite-free in the backcountry with awesome information on bug repellents.

Pick Out and Get Out- Learn the differences of kayaks and how to pick out the best one for you.

Streamline Your Kayak- Optimize your kayak for fishing and all the gear needed for it.

And if all that isn’t getting you fired up then how does a 20/20 Social Hour sound? On April 25th from 6PM-7PM we will set aside some room for you to meet other outdoor enthusiasts and learn awesome tips and share amazing information. The first 100 customers to attend this 20/20 Social Hour will receive a free giveaway!

I’m sure by now you are itching to bust out of your seat, grab some water and a pack and just get outside…. BUT HOLD ON! While getting outside is a reward in its own right, we are taking it one step further. That’s right we are talking about A CHALLENGE! The 20/20 Challenge to be exact! This is where you pledge to get out and log either 20 hours or 20 miles of outdoor activities. If you sign up to take the 20/20 Challenge, you will be entered in for a chance to win the Workender Prize Package. You can sign up online on April 25th and 26th or in-store on April 25th from 6PM-8PM. Share the fun and post photos to basspro.com/Workender.

We hope to see you there!

-Giddy-Up!!
