It’s finally springtime in the Pacific Northwest!  If you’re looking for a fun-filled family outing to jolt you from months of hibernation, look no further than Tulalip, WA, just 40 miles north of Seattle.  Thursday, April 19th, 2012 marks the Grand Opening of the third Cabela’s retail store location in the Pacific Northwest.  After an exciting ribbon cutting at 10:45 a.m., doors will open to the public at 11:00 AM sharp.

Cameron Hanes will get things started by cutting the ribbon with his bow!

To get the party started, well-known bowhunting author and Under Armour Arsenal Athlete, Cameron Hanes, will be on hand with his Hoyt bow to perform the official ribbon cutting.  A large crowd is expected.  I recently spoke with Cam about dealing with the pressure of making the shot.  He said, “I like putting myself in high-pressure situations; with the crowd, the media, the cameras – I can’t miss.  I leave on Saturday for my first Alaskan brown bear hunt and will be using the same bow and arrow set up.  This shot represents the focus I’ll need to get the job done.”

The Outdoor Channel’s Matt Eastman, TV host of “Wanna Go Fishing?,” will attend the ribbon cutting and make an offer to one lucky guest that is certain to excite fishing enthusiasts.  “Wanna Go Fishing?” is known for randomly selecting people and giving them five minutes and two phone calls to decide if they’ve “got the guts” to go on an adventure of a lifetime to one of the finest fishing locations in the world.

Opening day and the following weekend will feature outdoor experts, hunting and fishing celebrities, sweepstakes and giveaways, live music and family and outdoor activities.  Come out and see: CJ Buck, Matt Eastman, Ralph and Vicki Cianciarulo, Jim Burnworth, Fred and Michele Eichler, Bob Fromme, Scott and Tiffany Haugen, Cameron Hanes, and others!

The store is located within Quil Ceda Village along Interstate 5 at exit 202.

There’s Something for Everyone!
