This past weekend marked our first official event! We spent two days at the Bass Pro Shops Go Outdoors Event in Broken Arrow, OK. The event included kayak and canoeing demos on Uncle Buck's pond, a fish fry, a rock climbing wall, and a Coleman gear giveaway. We set up our booth outside the store by the rock climbing wall and provided activities for kids and families to come and enjoy. The favorite activity of the weekend was the bear canister challenge. Being in Oklahoma, we were encouraged to change the name from bear canister to "coon can" as there are many raccoons and not many bears living in Oklahoma. The folks in Broken Arrow were happy to have us and were very interested in learning ways to Leave No Trace...Safe Travels!
