Join us on August 12 to celebrate the Grand Opening of Root River Rod Co in Lanesboro, Minn. We will be kicking off the day by cleaning up the town stretch of the Root River. Gloves, bags, and canoes will be available, but we encourage everyone to bring water shoes, waders, nets, even snorkels. Prizes for the most interesting trash pulled from the river! We will wrap up the clean-up around noon and head back to the shop, where we will have the grill going, cold drinks, fantastic storewide sales, and a casting contest with prizes valued up to $600.
• 10 a.m.-12 p.m.: River Cleanup! Meet at the dam and we will work our way down. Some canoes will be provided but we welcome you to bring your own as well. We will be cleaning up trash as well as some down trees.
• 12-2 p.m.: Head back to RRRCo for grilled lunch, cold drinks, and our Casting Contest. We will be looking at distance as well as accuracy with prizes that are sure not to disappoint! We will also have storewide discounts, raffles, and other giveaways.
