Hello there @grainmeat !
Sounds like you might be referencing our Anniversary Sale which usually takes place mid/late May. We are still planning on holding this sale. As you can imagine we are learning into new ways of doing business and things are ever evolving. While we don't have any specifics or a detailed timeline to share on these events, you can expect some of the same great deals you have experienced in the past.
We appreciate your patience ans understanding during these times. Stay tuned!
Thanks for the reply...just wanted to check in to make sure we are talking about the same thing. In Seattle, every spring...there is a paddling "blitz" that includes kayaks and canoes etc available for members to try out on Lake Washington...and it's always accompanied by a sale. It seemed to be more of a focused paddling event rather than a larger anniversary event. Are they one and the same? Is Seattle planning on doing a specific paddling promo this spring?
Thanks for clarifying,
It has been wonderful weather for paddling in Seattle!
I believe the demo event you are referring to is the The NW Paddling Festival , which is typically held on Lake Sammamish annually in the April/May time-frame.
Although this is not an REI Co-op event, many of the paddle brands that we stock at the store do participate. When you hit the link, you can see their current plans and the partners they expect to be on site.
I hope that helps, have fun on the water this summer!
