Picture your IDEAL day…in a kayak you won from Dominion and IDEAL Industries!

The 2020 pandemic spiked a boom in outdoor activities, especially individual activities like biking and kayaking. Kayak sales were up 51% in February 2021, compared to February 2020…this was after the previous 4 to 5 years had seen a small but steady decline in the paddle industry. So, we thought, “What a great time to run a kayak giveaway, just in time for holiday gift-giving!” With help from our friends at IDEAL Industries, we launched the “Picture your IDEAL day” promotion on October 1

Register to win, now through December 15!

You can register to win a Lifetime Angler Fishing Kayak until December 15, and we’ll announce the winner on Monday, December 20 on our website and Facebook. The more you visit us, the better your chance of winning! And of course, we’d like you to purchase your favorite IDEAL Industries products while you’re there.

Look for smaller giveaways now through Friday, December 3!

IDEAL has generously donated smaller prizes which we’ll give away about every other week throughout the promotion — an IDEAL branded 18 oz. color grip tumbler, 20 oz. copper vacuum insulated tumbler, polycanvas insulated lunch cooler, and telescoping flex flashlight. Each location will hold drawings for these smaller prizes, all leading up to the big kayak giveaway in December.
