Easy Rider BBQ for Fort McMurray

This Saturday, May 14, we are having a BBQ here at the store to raise funds (and provide a meal) for the people of Fort McMurray.

Many of my suppliers have donated a lot of clothing – which will be free to residents of Fort McMurray.

The clothing will also be available to purchase, by cash donation, for those that live locally, 100% of the money going to the Red Cross.

Plus we will have a Snowboard set up and a Longboard as raffle prizes as well.

Event runs from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM.

Please pass this on to get the word out to as many people as possible.
Thank you.

Nixon's head office - the building was originally an old lumber yard.

Easy Rider x Nixon Contest

The store ran a contest in conjunction with Nixon Watches last fall.

One lucky customer and one of our staff won a trip to Nixon’s head office in¬†Encinitas, California to build their own custom watch.
We also tied the trip in with the Supercross event in San Diego.

It was a great trip of a lifetime.

Thanks to Nixon for making it all happen.

I’ll let the photos tell the rest of the story.
