Go Army – Visit Your Bass Pro Shops For an Army Celebration Event
Special event salutes troops, includes free family activities.
Springfield, Missouri –-(Ammoland.com)- Labor Day Weekend typically signals the last hurrah of summer as families finish vacations and kids get ready to head back to school.
It’s also a time we honor the achievements of those in the workplace and most would agree no one works harder than our military personnel.
That’s why Bass Pro Shops retail locations across the US will host an Army Celebration Event beginning Labor Day weekend and continuing through the second weekend in September.
Fifty-one Bass Pro Shops across the United States will offer a special salute to our troops Labor Day weekend, September 4th-6th and again Saturday and Sunday, September 11th and 12th and it’s all free!
Help show your appreciation for our troops, most of whom won’t be able to get home for the holiday, by bringing in new or slightly used DVDs, video games or books. The first 200 people at each store who bring in donated items Saturday-Monday September 4-6th, or Saturday or Sunday, September 11th-12th will receive a Sportsman’s Racing Team poster—the first 25 people to bring in donated items on Saturday, September 4th or 11th will receive a poster signed by a Sportsman’s racing team driver. You’ll also want to sign the big Appreciation Banner at the store that will be sent to troops.
Stores will offer free seminars and workshops, including proper flag folding demonstrations and more. Kids can challenge mom or dad to a radio remote control car race Saturday, Sunday and Monday from noon to 5pm or take part in any of the other free activities such as the paintball cage, bean bag toss, yard bolo or make their way through a cones and tires obstacle course. Participants of the obstacle course will receive a fun prize. (Check out www.basspro.com/army for complete Army Celebration Event weekend activities for your local store)
