Greetings from our Raleigh Store
Triangle Events from Great Outdoor Provision Co:
Please register for our boat demo in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the boats you are interested in (if applicable). Please note that if a specific boat or board is not in our demo fleet we will not be able to bring it to the event.
This spring we’ll be offering free, informal kayak & canoe demonstrations conveniently located near some of our busiest shops. This is a great opportunity to try out a boat in an environment that is informational, informal and presented at no charge.
Our Afternoon Boat Demos are geared towards customers who have already narrowed down their choices after visiting one of our shops and feel that some on-water time prior to purchase is necessary. However, we also welcome folks who are just curious about kayaks & canoes and want to try it out in a low pressure environment.
Folks unable to attend one of our scheduled on-water demo events can inquire with their local shop regarding a fee-based demo. As for specific boats, in addition to any particular models from an attending manufacturer, we’ll bring some of our most popular boats and boards that are best suited for flatwater, fitness, fishing and all-round use. However, please let us know in advance if there is a particular boat or board in our demo fleet you would like to try and we will do our best to get it to the lake. Please note that if a boat or board is not in our demo fleet, we will not be able to bring it to the event.
SAVING THE RIVER ONE SONG AT A TIME
The New York Times describes the Festival for the Eno as: “like a giant backyard barbecue for the creative class: it’s homey and raucous, full of music, dancing, crafts and sweaty kids slurping giant glasses of lemonade.”
Each year since 1980 the Eno River Association has presented the Festival for the Eno to draw thousands of folks to the shaded banks on the Eno River to sing dance and make merry with great food and crafts all while learning about natural resource conservation and raising funds for land protection in the Eno River basin.
The Festival the Eno has it’s beginnings in the NC Folklife Festival held at Durham’s newly created West Point Park in 1976 as the state’s official bicentennial celebration and featured traditional crafts, music, dance and trades demonstrations. The Festival’s for the Eno is still dedicated to the preservation and presentation of our rich and varied cultures and still offers plenty of hands on learning opportunities. Attendees can “throw” a pot on a clay wheel, watch a water powered grist mill grinding corn, or participate in urban farming, kayaking, weaving, and clean energy demonstrations, or participate in an old time or ukulele “jam” at the High Strung workshop stage.
That is, when they are not listening or dancing to the 60+ hours of music on 4 stages, browsing the booths of 80 plus crafts artists, drinking cold beers and other drinks, or diving into the delicious offerings of more than 20 food trucks and vendors.
