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.

Anatomy of a Shed
Saturday was a winterizing day for me. We got about eight inches of snow last weekend, so I figured I better take advantage of the beautiful fall day and get the shed cleaned out and then packed up with all of our patio playthings. As you can see from the photos, my shed is absolutely packed. I guess that's what a shed is supposed to look like, isn't it? I had a unique opportunity of being a part of the team thatdeveloped the shed- from start to finish. I remember when it came up as an idea for a new product, I remember reading through the miles and miles of research about it and I remember seeing the prototypes as they came and went. I know more about these sheds than any other Lifetime product, and I am exceedingly proud of them. I also bought one of the first sheds we produced. According to the serial numbers and julian ...
Basketball Polar Bear
I took a trip to San Diego this past weekend for theInternational PRSA conference.Awesome information and great speakers. But, four daysofworkshops, exhibitions, and keynote speakers-- needless to say, it's healthy to take a break! What better place to dojust thatthan the San Diego Zoo!For me, the highlight of the zoo is watching the polar bears. I was so excited to get to the exhibit, only to find him spread out on his belly, fast asleep. After a few minutes of debatingwether or notI should move on,suddenly, heopened his eyes and lumbered over to the pool. Kids and adults alike ran toward the glass, watching with excitement. This polar bear knew exactly what he wanted to do. He swam to one side of the water, grabbed his ball withone humongous paw, and swamto the other side right in front of agroup of children. What happ...
New Lifetime Folding Tailgate Table - Perfect for Tailgating, Picnicking, and Camping
If you are going camping this summer or planning a July 4th picnic on-the-go, then our newest product is perfect for you - the Lifetime Folding Tailgate Table! Although we designed this new table with a tailgater in mind, don't let the name mislead you - this recreational table is ideal for picnics, camping, or any outdoor get-together. Simply put, this table is basically like a Lifetime banquet table with a metal grilling table attached to it - it saves you from lugging around two tables all the time. It has a 5'6" x 28" high-density polyethylene (HDPE) tabletop for prepping or serving food. (You can even easily sit four people around the table to use it as a dining table.) At the end of the table, there is an attached 28" x 15" heavy-duty grill rack with utensil holder. But, the best part is how compact this table folds. ...
