This past weekend, the Balconi Team attended Gearfest in Dayton, Ohio. Gearfest was hosted by Five Rivers Metroparks and was one exciting event. Whether watching Emily Sukiennik preparing for the Gibbon USA National Slackline Championship, or watching the racers competing in the Gearfest Off-road 5K, there was much to do and experience at Gearfest 2011.
The Balconi Team enjoyed watching the competitions and other events that were going on throughout Gearfest. The first day was quite cold and rainy. This did not stop the event! There was still a great turnout of passionate, outdoor enthusiasts ready to look at the latest and greatest outdoor products. The final day of Gearfest was beautiful. The Balconi Team spent the day spreading the story and meaning of the Balconi Brand; as well as hearing stories from others! The Balconi Team was welcomed by everyone who attended the event this past weekend. One of the Five Rivers Metroparks event coordinators told us that, “Balconi became the staple of Gearfest this year”!
We can not thank Gearfest, Five River Metroparks and all of the attendees enough for welcoming us to this wonderful, Midwest outdoor gear event! We enjoyed hearing stories as well as sharing a few laughs! Until next year!
