Silver lake Jeep Invasion
A weekend out at the Silver Lake Sand Dunes is exactly what the team at BDS Suspension needed. Michigan has been hit with some good sized storms lately, which brings flooding, downed trees, and power lines, which ended up leaving the BDS Headquarters without power for a few days. So getting a weekend away in one of our favorite Michigan locations was needed. We are always excited when we get to spend time with our local Michiganders and talk all things suspension.
Friday started out with setting up our booth display. We had the orange BDS JL and the Liberty lined up and ready to go. Before the show officially opened people were already flowing in, which got us excited for the weekend ahead. There was steady foot traffic all throughout the day. On Friday evening we sponsored a BDS moving night, where we had an outdoor elevated screen for people to watch our featured movie, Jurassic Park. People enjoyed this time hanging out watching a classic, plus the popcorn was pretty good. We went around handing out BDS swag to those who attended. It was a fun family night for people of all ages.
Saturday did not start off the way Friday did. Saturday morning brought a cold rain storm came through, which kept people away, but as the day progressed the rain faded and the attendance got back into a steady rhythm. BDS enthusiast and team member, Brandi, brought her white TJ for display on Saturday. This TJ is equipped with a BDS 4.5" Long Arm kit. Several TJ owners stopped by to check out this rig. Later in the day the awards were being handed out, and once night fell there was an exciting firework display to cap off activities at the golf course. This show was an exciting way to end the day and lead us into the final day of the event.
Sunday was parade day! Jeeps lined up and paraded on down to the dunes where they got into formation for a large group photo.
Silverback Offroad, our local authorized distributor was set up across from us. They were giving out 15% off our products at this event. People who were interested in our products took full advantage of this discount by stopping by the Silverback booth to place their orders. It was great to work with our distributor and build relationships with a great group of people.
