Lifetime Makes Waves at One of the Largest Outdoor Shows in the World

OR Show Demo 2012.JPGMany people don’t know this, but Salt Lake City, UT is currently home to one of the largest Outdoor Industry shows in the world - Outdoor Retailer!  And for those of you not familiar with Lifetime’s home base, we are only 30 minutes north of Salt Lake. So lucky for us, this show is smack in our backyard. While we did attend this show last year, we went bigger and better than ever this year!

The show began for the Water Sports industry on Wednesday, August 1 at the Open Air Demo held at Jordanelle Reservoir.  Jordanelle Reservoir is a beautiful venue for a demo day, especially since it is in such close proximity to the show and to infamous Park City, Utah. We took all of our current Lifetime Kayak models out so retailers and potential dealers from all over the world could give our boats a spin. We had the Lifetime Wave, Tamarack, Tamarack Angler, Payette, Payette Angler, Monterey, Manata and Sport Fisher. We had an amazing turn out! Our kayaks were in the water constantly and everybody had an absolutely wonderful time!

OR Show 2012.JPGThe indoor portion of the show kicked off Thursday and continued into Sunday evening.  The show is the perfect opportunity to show off new designs and new innovations for the upcoming season.  Check out the photos of our displays!  Sweet, huh?  Notice anything different? Look closely at our kayak names on the signs. This year we re-vamped our logos.  Starting in 2013, you will see these new kayak name logos on all of the Lifetime Kayaks and Paddleboards!  I'll be sure to tell you more about this in a future blog post.

While at the show, Lifetime staff members mingled with the outdoor industry and showed off all of our great kayak designs.  We were busy all day, every day, and we received great reactions to all of our kayaks and our new logo design.  We also unveiled a new Tandem Kayak!! I don’t want to spoil things now, so you’ll have to stay tuned for more information on the fantastic new tandem! 

We are super excited to be taking the kayak industry by storm and we have you, the Lifetime paddlers out there, to thank!  If you haven’t done so already, check out our kayaks and paddleboards at www.lifetime.com!

Position at Lifetime Products- Watersports Marketing Manager for Lifetime and Emotion brand kayaks

How long at Lifetime Products- Since January 2012!  I came as a packaged deal with the acquisition of Emotion Kayaks where I’d been for over a year.


Topics I blog about- Events and news in water sports, places to kayak, and enjoying the outdoors with friends and family.

My favorite products from Lifetime- Any of the Kayaks and paddleboards.  One of these days I’ll get my hands on a Fold-up Trailer and a Camp and Tailgate Table!

On a Saturday afternoon you can find me- This question will always depend on the season!  When the weather outside is frightful, you can find me at one of the nearby ski resort enjoying the fresh snow and crisp air or snowshoeing through the mountains.  Once the sun is shinning and the birds are chirping, my Saturdays are spent outdoors hiking, backpacking, biking, paddle boarding or my most favorite activity of all, kayaking!  All while enjoying the company of good friends of course!

My favorite escape- Anything whitewater, whether it be kayaking or rafting.  A more relaxing escape would be taking my camera out into the wilderness to photograph everything from wildlife to serene landscapes.

Wiggle Cars are fun!
BuyLifetime.com has generally sold only products manufactured by Lifetime Products, but Lifetime has always been about more than just tables, chairs, sheds and organization, and basketball hoops, Lifetime was founded on the principles of family fun and togetherness. So, in the tradition of family fun, BuyLifetime.com now offers Wiggle Cars (some call them Wiggle Scooters or Coaster Cars). These little cars are entirely kid-powered, no batteries required. Simply hold onto the steering wheel and start twisting side-to-side. Buy a few and challenge the kids to a race. Available in blue and yellow. Unlike most scooters, these wiggle cars will work for small children (we recommend ages 3 and up), but older kids and even parents up to 230 pounds can jump on and enjoy. Oh, and like all products on BuyLifetime.com, shipping is ...
Planning a Super Bowl Party!
Super Bowl Sunday is a fine excuse to throw a great party. You and your guests can cheer on a favorite team, laugh together at outrageous Super Bowl commercials and last but not least, catch up while enjoying the all-important food and drink. Follow these tips to plan a fun, casual Super Bowl Party: Make your guest list and invite your friends with a football-themed e-vite. They can RSVP and get maps to your home online. Purchase football-themed party goods and decorations at a party supply store. Pick up napkins, plates, cups, streamers, etc in your teams colors. If you are on a tight budget, concentrate your decorating on the table where the food will be served. Prepare the Chili Boats with Fixins the day before the Super bowl and simply re-heat. These savory chili boats are tempting because guests can customize their ...
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...
