Get Balanced!

We had such a blast spreading the good word about balanced buoyancy at last weekend's 70.3 Oceanside that we decided to award one lucky winner $1,000 of a blueseventy pro kit (wetsuit, warm ups, apparel, swim wear, transition bag, goggles, gear, swag, etc.). Above you can see the video featuring Thomas Johnson of Tri Club San Diego and blueseventy's Naomi Fergusson & Dean Jackson where we announced Kevin O'Neil as the winner! Kevin stopped by the booth, tried on some suits, entered the contest and went on his merry way. His response when we notified him: "This was completely unexpected." Be sure to stop by the blueseventy booth at select Ironman and 70.3 events this year for the opportunity to enter another giveaway!

Tri4Japan is a charity established by Mike Trees to help the people of Kamaishi, a town in Japan devastated by the recent earthquake and tsunami. We've been moved by Mike's cause and we wanted to help support him & Tri4Japan in Oceanside. We asked our athlete Rasmus Henning to come up on stage and along with Eric Gilsenan we auctioned off an Axis Wetsuit. It was a great opportunity to notify the public about Tri4Japan and help raise money for the cause. The $550 Axis started at $100 and was eventually auctioned off for $330!

After a successful weekend and exciting race (Potts vs. Rasmus! Carfrae vs. Heather Jackson!) we're so pumped that the 2011 race season has kicked off we can't wait until the next event to raffle off another prize so we decided to launch a giveaway exclusively through our Facebook page. Enter at facebook.com/blueseventy for your chance to win!
