I Won a Kayak

I Won a Kayak

Yes, I won a kayak…from a liquor store. A few weeks (months perhaps) ago Michelle and I were at the LiquorMax in Loveland buying wine and whiskey. Michelle was deciding what wine to get and I was wondering around the domestic beer section. I noticed a stack of Budweiser cases with a drawing for a kayak on top. I looked at the picture of the kayak expecting to see a ton of Budweiser branding; to my surprise it wasn’t too bad. So I barrowed Michelle’s pen and submitted my name.

Yesterday (during the coffee walk) I received a phone call from someone at American Eagle Distributing informing me that I won the kayak! The woman on the phone asked me if I remembered entering, I said I did which was funny because apparently the majority of the winners don’t remember winning.

I picked up the kayak this afternoon and later in the evening Michelle and I went to Dick’s Sporting Goods and JAX to look for life vests and a paddle. If we do use it, we will also need to get a mount for the top of the car and a second kayak.

It is 8' 3'' which is small for a kayak although if I take off my shoes I fit just fine
