Calling All Snowbirds
Camping World Announces January Snowbirds Party
(Tuscon, Ariz.-) Year after year, yearning for warmer weather prompts many northerners to pack up their RVs and migrate south for the winter. "Snowbirds", as they are affectionately called, spend the warm summer months at home up north and head south once the thermometer starts dropping. The Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) estimates that the United States has some 2 million snowbirds.
Camping World will host a Snowbirds Party at the Tuscon, Ariz. SuperCenter in conjunction with Beaudry RV’s annual Western Barbecue, from January 26-29, 2006 to acknowledge and show their appreciation to the snowbirds and their passion for RVing. During these four days, snowbirds and local customers are invited to visit the store for daily product specials, free food, and games courtesy of Camping World and Beaudry RV.
Customers in the Tuscon area will be treated to special pricing on select Camping World merchandise all weekend. A dice roll game for prizes will be offered to customers on Thursday & Friday from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, product specials will be featured, and from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. a prize wheel will be in place for customers to take a chance at winning more prizes.
To spice up the event even more, customers visiting the store each day will be treated to lunch and entertainment provided by Beaudry RV. As part of their 20th Anniversary Annual Western Barbecue, the RV SuperCenter will be serving roasted chicken lunches and giving away valuable prizes. Daily games and entertainment will also be part of the activities, with a special concert featuring Mel Tillis being held during the event.
Camping World is located at 3220 East Irvington Road in Tucson, Arizona. For more information about Camping World or for driving directions to the Tucson location, visit www.campingworld.com.
