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.

Pumpkin Carving Fun
For a fun family activity last night we thought it would be fun to do some pumpkin carving. It was an amusing evening that our two boys thoroughly enjoyed.As soon as I left work, I picked up the boys and we drove down to a local outdoor produce stand that always seems to have a great selection of pumpkins, all in different shapes and sizes, each one seemed to have their own personality. I think Josh and Jake changed their minds on which pumpkin they each wanted about eight times. Originally Josh was really set on a small pumpkin just a little bit larger than my fist, (I dont think I have the patience to carve a pumpkin that small), so I had to use my best diplomatic efforts to convince him to choose a different pumpkin. He eventually chose another one-- the largest one out there. Jake also chose one that I am sure outweighed ...
Thanksgiving Kids' Table
Gathering extended family together on Thanksgiving Day adds quality to life. There is excitement in the air as guests start to arrive and greet each other and catch up. Children especially love to visit their cousins at the holidays. When entertaining, always keep in mind that invited children are guests too. Having an activity table for the kids that can double as a dining table can be invaluable at holiday gatherings. My six grandchildren love to have their own kids' table with activities. On a busy day like Thanksgiving, offer crafts that are simple and fun. Try these easy ideas to keep your young guests entertained. As always for safety, adult supervision is required. Set up a Lifetime Childrens Folding Picnic Table and cover with a sheet of white butcher paper and fasten with tape. Have washable markers and show the ...
What NOT to Do When Assembling a Lifetime Basketball Hoop
A few months ago I forewarned you of the top three things to know before assembling a Lifetime Basketball Hoop. Today, I'm going to share with you some of the specific hurdles I alluded to in that post that we crossed along the way when assembling our own Lifetime Basketball Hoop (model 90228). To be honest, I'm kind of embarrassed to share my story with you given some of the pretty major "oopsies" we had. After all, since I work for Lifetime, you'd think I'd know how to assemble the products. Not necessarily true. This was my first time assembling a Lifetime Basketball Hoop. Let's just say, I can definitely empathize with our customers now! Before we started assembling, we laid out all of our parts and pieces to make sure we could easily find everything. Thankfully, all the parts and bags of hardware are labeled well. Simpl...
