Tumalo Creek To Host Huge Demo Day

If next week’s PPP serves as final confirmation that you definitely need a new boat, you might want to get down to Tumalo Creek Kayak  and Canoe the day after the race. The Bend boat specialist is hosting a massive demo day on Sunday, featuring some 150 different models of kayaks and canoes. The event is free and open to the public.


The full press release is below:


Tumalo Creek will have over a hundred and fifty boats to demo the day after the Pole, Pedal, Paddle.

Bend, OR – Did you miss Spring Paddlefest or are you still looking to find a boat that is just the right fit? On Sunday, May 22, 2011 Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe will host its annual Post-PPP Demo Day from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on the lawn behind the shop. Tumalo Creek’s demo fleet will triple in size in order to provide for the huge demand during race day. Kayaking experts will be on hand to help answer questions, fit paddlers into boats, and offer advice.

This is a unique opportunity for new paddlers to try out a wide variety of boats. Advanced paddlers looking to upgrade will also benefit by gaining a hands-on knowledge of what is available before investing in a new boat.

Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe has been proudly supporting the Pole, Pedal, Paddle with safety boaters for eleven years running.
