Departing Winnipeg in deep-freeze conditions, Pit, Julie, Patrick (and baby Natasha) head to Minneapolis this week for the Northwest Sportshow. This destination is the seventh of nine stops in Aikens' tradeshow circuit. Prior to this trip we've visited Kansas City, Chicago, Denver, Calgary, Phoenix and Montréal. The last two, Phoenix and Montréal, were held on the same weekend. Meaning, Pit and Julie spread the good word about Aikens in warm and sunny Arizona while Pat and Gerry approched the people of french Canada for the first time.
Many of you are aware that much of Aikens' staff are French-Canadian, so it only makes sense for us to offer our unique product to french speaking anglers. Gerry and Pat are happy to report that, amidst many surprised reactions, they were able to speak to many interested "pêcheurs" (fishermen)! Nous tenons à remercier tous ceux qui sont venu causer avec nous au sujet de la pêche sportive sans égale au Manitoba. Nous esperons vous voir un jour sur notre quai!
If you or anyone you know will be in the Minneapolis area this weekend, don't hesitate to contact us to let us know you are coming. It would be our pleasure to set aside some admission tickets for at the Will-Call. Phone 1-800-565-2595 or 204-237-5253. Email firstname.lastname@example.org . We hope to see you there!
