“Heavens to Murgatroyd!”…Snagglepuss used to say. That was his famous surprise exclamation. Snaggle-who? 1960’s cartoon? Never mind…just act surprised!
Adventure Capitalist, Duck Dynasty and two other private equity investors are perusing the Assassin Kayak Paddle project. Four proverbial “pokers in the fire!” We are still moving forward in our endeavor to procure the necessary funds to bring this project to market. Failure is not an option!
CNBC’s own “entrepreneur meets investors” reality TV show, Adventure Capitalist has shown interest in our Assassin Kayak Paddle Project. So much so, that we have already had an hour long Skype interview with the shows casting director. Thumbs up!
The Adventure Capitalist TV show is new and they were soliciting outdoor adventure entrepreneurs to submit projects for their future shows. What the heck did I have to lose? Application submitted! A month later, they are calling about the project!
Duck Dynasty on the other hand has been more of a “guerilla marketing” tactic, than anything else. It is nearly impossible to contact any of the individual duck people with the layers of office security they utilize. What the hell, I’ll just back door them. I figured I’d send them six Assault Hand Paddles, addressed to Willie, for the duck building crew to play with. You know how bad-ass those hand paddles are, and if those duck guys get them…something HAS to happen!
I finally got a hold of JD Owen, Willie’s personal assistant. He told me the Assault Hand Paddles were handed off to Justin Martin, their “new product” manager. Martin, as he’s called on the show, is one of the duck call builders. I want them to explore the possibilities the patented “hook and teeth” blade design has to offer.
At this point, I am still trying to establish dialogue with Martin and establish the whereabouts of those legendary hand paddles. It’s duck season…go figure! Done gone huntin’!!
We also have two other prospective investors, I assume they are private equity investors, who have solicited information about funding the Assassin Kayak Paddle project. Out of respect, I will keep their personal information secured until we have reached some contractual agreement. One is from the Ohio area, the other from the Tennessee area…both involved in the paddle sports communities.
I feel quite good about the Adventure Capitalist TV show. Apparently from this Skype interview, the casting director edits together a short video presentation about Backwater Paddle Company and the Assassin Kayak Paddle for the CNBC producers. I sent them our collection of YouTube micro-videos shot earlier this year. The producers will then select the potential entrepreneurs and products for their future shows. Shooting begins January 2017! I feel we have a legitimate chance for the 2017 season!
Again. I want to reiterate the fact that the table is still open! If you know someone who wants to explore this investment opportunity before it closes, contact me soon. Getting in on the ground floor plan now, will yield large returns in the future!
“Exit, Stage Left”…Snagglepuss exclaims when departing! Snaggle-who? Check the interweb!
Paddle on my friends!
