Our fourth day out here was a little bit different from our first couple days out here.......mostly because we didn't have anything left to give out other than a couple lanyards - and those went quick. Even though we didn't have any more of our giveaway shirts or other free prizes, we still helped make some people's day by giving away full strung heads! That's right, we brought a few heads with us and just gave them out to unsuspecting players who were repping ComLax swag. Check out our Instagram for some great reaction shots.
One of the coolest things about today was that we were having the "String It Forward" clinic with Mike Sullivan, our Stringmaster General. We were originally supposed to have Connor Wilson of Lax All-Stars come help out, but his last-minute duties as GM of Thailand during the tournament prevented him from stopping by.
In our first clinic, Will strung up a nice low pocket on his STX Surgeon. He's was able to sit directly down one-on-one with Mike and learn some great tips from him. In our second clinic for advanced stringing, we had a few more guys that came to stay around. Each of them even got a free stringing kit provided by the great guys at Jimalax. We had a couple different types of players, so the pockets varied quite a bit in the advanced session.
Later in the he night we got to go down to catch the Iroquois vs Canada game. While we were there to wind down and enjoy the game, we were still in giveaway mode, too! We managed to find some folks wearing ComLax stuff in the stands, so we gave them some sticks! We even gave one to a player from the Uganda National team and he was very excited.
It was a great game and no matter where we were sitting, we saw some great action. The Iroquois were down pretty bad, trailing 8-3 at one point, but managed to make a good comeback in the fourth quarter when they tied it up at 8. Canada finished it off with 17 seconds left to finalize the win for them.
This is our last day out here and it's been a blast giving stuff away and introducing a lot of people to our store and our staff. Denver has been beautiful and we've met a lot of lacrosse players and families who truly had some great stories behind their journey out here! It was really a pleasure talking to so many new people and seeing how excited everyone was to be in our booth. See you at the next event!
