    Boulder Road Trip with Nick-San, Kenji, Koichi, and Yuji

    This week we had the pleasure of hosting our Japanese customers here in Colorado.  They are long-time Madden fans from years back and have become some of our strongest partners and biggest supporters of the brand’s revival.

    The gang stopped in to visit us in Boulder before going to Outdoor Retailer. Here are some clips from the trip, including the first official Madden Equipment factory tours.

    The music is courtesy of Nick-San – a great friend and a talented musician.  We dedicate this post to him and his fellow travel companions – thank you for coming to Boulder!

    Nick-San plays Oh Susanna on his harmonica on the way to the Madden Factory.

    Madden Partners with The Oskar Blues CAN’d Aid Foundation

    Madden Equipment will donate 100% of the proceeds of all Dan’s Pack, Knapsack and Daytripper Packs to the Oskar Blues CAN’d Aid Foundation.

    To date, CAN’d Aid has raised $550,000 to support flood relief in and around Boulder, Longmont, and Lyons, CO.  The connection to Oskar Blues starts with its owner, Dale Katechis and Madden Equipment’s owner, Mike Valvano. Dale and Mike worked at Madden Equipment together back in the early ’90s – for both it was their first job in the outdoor industry.  See December 1st Deep Cuts Post for the Beer, Gear and Bluegrass trifecta explanation.

    Beyond flood relief, the CAN’d Aid Foundation will stay true to Oskar Blues’ rebel roots by shaking things up in the world of nonprofits.  They plan to offer small, grassroots grants to people and organizations across the country that can prove they can make a difference in their community in a significant way.

    Help us support The CAN’d Aid Foundation – get yourself a Dan’s, Knapsack or Daytripper Pack today…
