I am excited to announce that Park's Sportsman in Orem is now a new sponsor and supporter of the Utah Waterski Club!! They are offering all members and waitlist members of the club 20% off of all items in their Watersports Department and 10% off of everything else in the store!!! This is really a great benefit being offered to the club and its members by Randy Park of Park's Sportsman.
Park's Sportsman is the biggest sporting good store in Utah County and one of the biggest in the state. They have been in business in the same location for over 50 years! And unlike most other stores of this size they have not been bought out or taken over by a bigger conglomerate. The store is still family owned and operated by the Parks. The store is located in North Orem at 644 North State Street. Their phone number is 801-225-0227.
Last week I met with Randy Park and Cory Gebhardt of Park's Sportsman. They are excited to be involved with the club and anxious for all you members to see just how large their watersports department is and how much they have to offer the members. They actually approached us about getting involved with the club - we did not approach them. That alone says a lot about their commitment to supporting water skiing in Utah and especially in Utah County. And this is just the beginning. They would like to sponsor other events for the club. Some of the things we talked about were having a club night at the store for waterski club members, having a ski tournament sponsored by Park's Sportsman, and having a pro ski clinic also sponsored by Park's.
If you haven't been into Park's Sportsman for a while, you really need to go in and just take a look around. Their watersports department is the biggest in Utah County and one of the biggest in the state. Park's is both a Radar and an HO dealer. They carry both lines of skis. And if they don't have the Radar or HO that you are looking for they can order it and have it in a matter of just a few days. They also carry a large selection of gloves, handles, ropes, etc. And their selection of life jackets is huge! One of the biggest I've seen.
They also have a huge selection of wakeboards. I know, we are skiers not boarders. But most of us have kids and family members who are boarders (unfortunately). Well, Park's has everything a boarder needs. Huge selection of Ronix, Liquid Force, and Hyperlite boards!
In addition to skis and wakeboards, they have kneeboards, wakeskates, all sorts of tubes, and probably the biggest selection of surfboards in the state! They even have standup paddle boards for those of you who prefer manual power instead of motorized power. And if you need new boardshorts, swim suits, bikinis, etc, Park's also has a great selection of those as well.
But it isn't just about water sports. Randy is giving us 10% off of everything else in the store. Mountain bikes, road bikes, comfort bikes, kids bikes, shoes and cleats, athletic gear and equipment for all types of sports, camping equipment, tents, packs, sleeping bags, fishing gear and supplies, clothing and apparel, paintball guns and equipment, pool tables (Park's has been in the pool table business for 50 years!), skiis and snowboards, full service bike shop and ski/snowboard shop. and many more things. I can't list everything. You just need to go in and see for yourself.
When you go in you will need to show your membership/waitlist card to get the discount. By the way, the discount does not apply to Red Tag items. If there are any questions when you go in just ask for Randy or Cory. And make sure you thank them for giving us these benefits and for supporting the club.
