Lifetime Celebrates Local Dick’s Sporting Goods Grand Opening

dicks1.jpgCan you make 121 free throws in a row?  We know someone who did!  During the Dick’s Sporting Goods Store grand opening event in Layton, Utah, we had a customer at our booth make 121 free throws in a row to set the record and win a Lifetime Basketball System! We also had a child make 95 free throws in a row.  Pretty impressive numbers.
 
The free throw contest was just one of the many activities Lifetime sponsored at the new Dick’s Sporting Goods in Layton, Utah during its grand opening the weekend of September 16-18.  Since Dick’s Sporting Goods sells our products, they invited Lifetime to take part in the celebration.  This was a great community event that brought out hundreds of people in our local area.  The three-day event started with a ribbon-cutting ceremony Friday morning and had a steady stream of customers throughout the weekend.
 
Dicks3.JPGWe loved being able to chat and meet with so many of our customers and local community members.  We even met the person who bought the very first Lifetime Basketball System sold in the new store!  We set up a Lifetime booth outside in front of the store and held lots of fun activities and giveaways for Lifetime gear and products.  There were lucky winners who walked away with free Lifetime Basketball Hoops, Lifetime Double Shots, a Lifetime Youth Kayak, and a Chute 98 Kayak (a sit-inside kayak Lifetime makes exclusively for Dick’s).  We even had the Utah Jazz Bear at our booth for two hours on Saturday entertaining visitors with silly string and autographs  - some on the kids’ foreheads :).
 
Dicks2.JPGOverall, it was a really fun and busy weekend.  (This was also the same weekend that over 500 Lifetime employees beautified two parks and a cemetery in Utah.  So, our employees were really out-and-about helping in our community those two days.)  We were proud to be a part of the celebration and help welcome one of Lifetime’s retail accounts to Layton.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Our current family favorite is the Big Stuff Hard Roof Play set.  The boys and their cousins LOVE it!  Since our home has the tendency to become a gathering place, we get the most use out of our large array of Lifetime Folding Tables.  We have our eye on the Ace Flyer for Christmas.  I have grand plans for The 60” Lifetime Mammoth Basketball System, I just need to first do a little backyard excavation for the play area.

Pilots, NASCAR, and Tailgating?
So, my hubby Mike did something pretty cool last weekend. I think Ive mentioned before that he is an F-16 pilot in the Air Force. Right now he is stationed at Randolph Air Force Base in San Antonio, Texas as an Instructor Pilot for the T-38 jet. Anywaylast weekend he (and some other guys from the squadron) did the flyby for the Nationwide NASCAR Series Race up in Dallas. Thanks to the wonders of technology, I was able to pause live TV and snap this photo of his flyby as shown on ESPN.:) After doing the flyby, Mike and the other pilots were escorted into pit row to watch the race. Mike said it was a pretty cool experience being right down by the action. They met Jack Roush, owner of several NASCAR teams and fellow aviation fan, and they stood within arms reach of Kyle Busch during his celebration in victory lane. However, wha...

Surprisingly though, we learned that many of you didnt know until this giveaway that Lifetime makes adjustable height tables. Although they aren't as widespread as our...
