WesSpur Open House and Rigging Clinic 2017

WesSpur's annual customer appreciation open house and clinic is coming right up!

Every year we like to express our gratitude to the hard-working people who keep us in business. WesSpur customers have proven themselves to be hard-working, loyal, and eager to learn more about the latest techniques and gear. We are inviting our customers throughout the Pacific North West to join us on Saturday, August 12th for a clinic/open house and BBQ.

Saturday morning we will kick things at 8 AM with a FREE clinic in the park! This is a great opportunity to learn from leaders in the industry and enjoy a cup of coffee and a donut. The clinic will cover tree rigging. (See below for more info and to reserve your spot!)

After the clinic we will host an open house at WesSpur from 12-4. We will have great deals, grilling lunch and refreshments out back, and the shop will be open for you to check out all the gear. Join us for both the clinic and the open house, or just one or the other - we will be glad to see you!

WesSpur is located at 2121 Iron Street, in Bellingham, WA. Directions to WesSpur
