To celebrate their 40th anniversary EasyPro Pond Products/Stoney Creek Fisheries (Grant, MI) hosted a multi-day open house event July 22 – 24, 2010. Nearly 600 customers attended the event from states and provinces across North America, including Alberta, California, South Carolina, Connecticut, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Iowa and all the Great Lakes states to name a few.
Attendees were busy with daily seminars and trade show exhibits from some of the best in the industry. Seminar highlights included “Marketing and Advertising Strategies” by Nanette Winowieki of The Pond Place (Milford, MI), “Building Beautiful Waterfeatures: Tips from a Pro!” presented by Eric Triplett of The Pond Digger (Yucaipa, CA), and “Techniques for Sizing and Seaming Pond Liners” by Bill Johnson of Firestone Specialty Products (Indianapolis, IN). Johnson reported, “This was one of the best seminars that I have the opportunity to lead. The questions and participation of the attendees were fantastic.”
Along with the daily seminars the EasyPro trade show exhibition also included other industry leading manufacturers including Aqua Ultraviolet, Bio Safe Systems, Firestone Specialty Products, Kasco Marine, Matala, Microbe-Lift, Pondmaster, and others.
The EasyPro lighting display area along with new “rainwater containment” and “Fire and Water” systems were a big hit.
Another notable event was the Thursday night pig roast that even a few rain showers could not dampen. The festivities ended Saturday evening with a surprise party for the retiring company founders, Steve and LeAnn Ouwinga.
EasyPro would like to thank all attendees and the vendors who were so generous with donations for door prizes. Daily door prizes valued at nearly $40,000.00 were awarded over the three days making this one of the largest give-a-ways in water garden history!
