EXPO 2!!

The Bolton Chamber of Commerce will be attending another expo soon – the upcoming Adirondack Sports and Fitness Summer Expo at the Saratoga Springs City Center on March 9-10 has FREE admission, which is a great draw! And $5,000 in prizes and giveaways, including entries to 5Ks, half-marathon and marathon runs; half-century and century rides; sprint, intermediate and half-Ironman triathlons; gift baskets; lodging packages; scuba diving courses; and much more. (For more information visit www.adksports.com or call 518-877 8788) Over 100 exhibitors will be there, with everything you need for running, cycling, triathlon, paddling, hiking, healthy living and travel. There will be great sales on gear, clothing and footwear, plus paddling demos, seminars and clinics, a 250-foot rock climbing wall, and fun family activities. A variety of seminars will be led by Adirondack Sports & Fitness Magazine contributing writers and regional experts. A new exhibit this year is a 20x34x4-foot heated expo pool with free scuba diving instruction from certified diving instructors. Attendees 10 and older can dive into the 4-foot deep 15,000 gallon pool and even explore fun underwater features. All necessary equipment is provided – even hairdryers. Bring your swimsuit, towel and sandals and you are ready to go! (You might want to reserve a spot ahead of time for this free demo!) The heated pool will also feature on-water paddle demonstrations and open water/triathlon swimming clinics featuring kayaking, canoeing, and stand-up paddle-boarding (SUP) demonstrations given by one of our Chamber members: the Lake George Kayak Company. The paddling clinics, led by Adirondack Mountain Club members and local experts, include capsize recovery, rescue and rolling, and a free kids’ try-it paddling session. Representatives from the Freihofer’s 5K Run for Women, Adirondack Mountain Club, Mohawk-Hudson River Marathon, Adirondack Museum, Tinman Triathlon, the Wild Center and many more events and destinations will be there to share their information – including the Bolton Chamber of Commerce, reminding visitors and potential new friends of our magnificent location and access to the lake, hiking and biking trails, and general welcoming atmosphere for summer adventures! **Stop by the Bolton Chamber booth at the Adirondack Sports & Fitness Expo and enter the raffle to win a gift basket with: a free rental for Stand-Up Paddle-boarding or kayaking for two from the Lake George Kayak Company, an overnight accommodation at Candlelight Cottages, dinner at the Sagamore, which is also the site for the Girlfriend’s Getaway (May 10-11-12, 2013) and there are two tickets for the Getaway in the basket; as well as $50 in Bolton Bucks to spend while you are here in Bolton Landing – well over $400 value!  Register to win!
