Pack & Paddle holds some great events throughout the year. Come springtime, we hold one of my favorite events of the year; Beer & Gear! As the name implies, it involves beer and it involves gear. This is an event that Pack & Paddle holds in correlation with it’s annual Spring demo day. Representatives from some of the best paddle and fishing companies (both national and local) come in for the weekend to talk gear on Friday night, and then demo that gear on Saturday. Additionally, the Reps are required to bring in four cases of a beer local to their part of the country.
There’ll be some great companies represented Friday night! Jackson Kayak will of course be there, as well as Hobie, Native, Werner Paddles, Nucanoe, Buggs Lures, Bote Board, Kaku Paddlesports, and more. We’ll also have some local companies there, one of which is Captain Brian Sherman from Kayak Venice Charters.
As if it weren’t already a fun event, there’s gonna be a ton of giveaways. Someone will win a brand new kayak, others might walk away with a guided kayak fishing trip, and there’s a lot more!
And lastly, the best part, it’s all free!
Beer & Gear is this Friday, March 4th, at 5pm at Pack & Paddle. The demo will be held at Vermillionville in Lafayette on Saturday, March 5th, at 10am. Hope to see you there!
