On Saturday afternoon, you can grab a hot dog at the Boy Scout cookout, listen to music compliments of Villaggio’s Spencer Murray and sample the new Day Trekker IPA from 42 North Brewing. The Day Trekker is refreshingly bright, with a burst of candied fruit and a piney essence to satisfy those hoppy desires. A perfect crusher for a day exploring the trails and sharing with friends. A portion of Day Trekker sales will be donated to the Western New York Mountain Biking Association (WNYMBA) to help with trail rehabilitation and conservation. 4.9% ABV
The afternoon will culminate in the SUP Pup Photo Contest. Owners and pups will pose for photos which will be uploaded for voting on Facebook. The winners will be awarded prizes from Ruffwear and Niteize.
On Sunday, our very own WPA-certified SUP instructors, Christy Rounds and Gracie Rounds, will be conducting a 90 minute Intro to SUP class starting at 9:00am. The cost of the class is $50, which includes the rental of the SUP, paddle, SUP leash and PFD. Call the store at 716-217-4047 to sign up because this class generally fills quickly!
