Boundary Waters Nights
In the coming weeks, you will see our invitation asking you to join us for a Boundary Waters Night in your area. You say to yourself, “What is a Boundary Waters Night anyway?” Cause, heck you don’t want to go and get some kind of sales pitch. Well here is the scoop.
What is a Boundary Waters Night?
Boundary Waters Nights were invented 24 years ago as a way to accomplish several things. First, we want to create an excuse for Boundary Waters enthusiasts to get out of the house on a winter’s night and mingle with others in your area that have a similar love and passion for the outdoors. While, we will admit to having a lot of fun in the process, we also want to provide some learning opportunity for our guests.
So as a part of every Boundary Waters Night we have two presentations. First, is a great slide show that serves as an introduction to the Boundary Waters. If you have never been there, this is for you. Even if you have been there a hundred times, it is fun to see the slides of the area and get revved up for the next season. The second part is a 20 to 30-minute seminar that covers some aspect of a Boundary Waters trip. Some years we talk about packing light, portages, fishing, and maybe wildlife photography. These are designed to be useful for everyone; experienced and neophyte alike.
Then there are the door prizes. Your chance to win a $100.00 Bending Branches paddle is worth attending just in and of its self. Finally, refreshments are served and a chance to mingle with others. All in all, it’s a great night. Please join us if you can. It is a great chance to figure out how to get a trip off the ground if it’s your first time, and a great time to recharge your batteries if you are an old timer.
Every year, Blayne and Dave pack up the booths and head to a Sport Show near you. We hope you come visit us at one of these shows. It is a great opportunity to visit with us about planning your next canoe trip adventure into the Boundary Waters or Quetico.
