Idaho’s Winchester Lake State Park Gets New Playground Equipment

When Idaho State Parks contacted LuckyDog Recreation about getting new playground equipment at Winchester Lake State Park, they needed to meet a deadline. Idaho State Parks are celebrating their 50 year anniversary in June and Winchester wanted their new equipment installed in time for the celebration.

LuckyDog Construction Manager CJ Stoddard and crew members, Keith and Joseph completed the project in record time.

“It’s a pleasure to do a job in location such as this. It’s so beautiful here. Steve was great to work with and we got to go fishing at lunch. The new playground complements their park setting very well,” said Stoddard.

According to the Winchester Lake Sate Park Facebook Page there will be plenty to do at their 50 year anniversary celebration:

“Idaho Parks and Recreation is turning 50 years old this year. Come join us Saturday, June 13th for a party at the park to celebrate. The Wolf Education and Research Center is also throwing their Summer Celebration that weekend.”

“Our new mascot, Scout, will make an appearance before Friday night’s evening program. Scout will say hello to everyone at about 7:15 p.m. There will be walks and programs throughout the day Saturday and a BBQ at the Ponderosa Point shelter for lunch. The activities and BBQ are free (no motor vehicle entrance fee for day users). The 13th is also Free Fishing Day so bring your pole and try your luck in between activities, no license needed.”

Have fun!

Playcraft Systems Pirate Ship Wins Best in Show

Ahoy, me Hearties! Congratulations to Playcraft Systems for winning the coveted “Best in Show” prize at the 2014 National Recreation and Parks Association, NRPA, Congress and Trade Show.

The competition was fierce with almost 400 commercial playground equipment companies fighting for the prize.Playcraft Systems Pirate Ship Wins NPRA Best In Show

The Best In Show

“The coveted Best in Show prize, is awarded to the most engaging and innovative booths on the floor.  After all the votes were in, Playcraft Systems took home the first-place blue ribbon for an island booth thanks to their popular pirate ship playground complete with costumed staffers and pirate hat giveaways.

The NRPA annual conference’s show floor is the most extensive place for park and recreation professionals to learn about and experience new possibilities for their communities, and with 91.3 percent of this year’s surveyed attendees noting that they play a role in the purchasing process for their agency, this popular component of the conference is an invaluable resource for park and recreation departments looking to renew or expand their offerings.”

LuckyDog at the Show

Because LuckyDog Recreation is the Utah and Idaho sales and installation rep for Playcraft Systems commercial playgrounds we were eager to jump in and help at the NRPA Congress.

CJ Stoddard, LuckyDog Recreation Construction Manager and Jordyn Goebel, Distribution Manager, represented us at this year’s show.

“All the play equipment manufacturers bring their latest and greatest inventions for Congress participants and customers from all across the nation. Playcraft’s Pirate Ship Structure received the ‘Best in Show’ award, the most prestigious award of the entire event”, said Stoddard.

It was Jordyn Goebel’s first time at an NRPA trade show. “Attending the biggest trade show of the year was a great great learning experience for me. I had loads fun”, said Goebel. “We helped out at our amazing booth and met lots of customers.

We assisted in dissembling the Pirate Ship after the show was over. It was also really nice to see the booth set-up of other commercial playground equipment manufacturers we represent in Idaho and Utah such as Dog-On-It Parks and BPR by Bison.”
