Unboxing prize won from IntenseAngler’s giveaway

My first unboxing video! John, aka IntenseAngler, sent me the prize I won on his subscriber appreciation giveaway. I thought I should share these moments with you! It was so much fun to participate in his contest that it gave me the last push I needed to have my own giveaway. If you have a channel and an excuse to have a giveaway, I suggest you do it. Not only is it fun for those that win, but also for those that participate and for the one who is hosting it.

SAIL in the GTA

SAIL, Canada’s largest outdoor store, is opening two new locations in the Greater Toronto Area on Wednesday, November 30th,2011. One of the stores is in Oshawa at 655 Laval Drive, next to  Lowes – that’s just North of Hwy 401 and West of Stevenson Rd. S. The other store is in Vaughan at 137 Chrislea Rd., Unit 1, next to The Brick – that’s just West of Hwy 400 and North of Hwy 7.

SAIL has 5 other locations: Beloeil, Laval, Ottawa, Brossard and Quebec City. Although I wasn’t able to find the business hours for the new locations, all the other locations are open from 9am to 6pm on Wednesdays, so if you want to go for the grand opening, my advice is to make it there before 6pm.

Also, SAIL is having a contest on Facebook where they are giving a $100 gift card away daily. All you have to do is go on their fan page on Facebook, “like” the page and fill out a form.
