Jesse Brown’s Outdoors: A 52-Year Tradition!
As we head into this Labor Day Weekend, The Outdoor Guys brings this episode of The Carolina Outdoors back home to Jesse Brown’s Outdoors, discussing the many wonderful things happening at Charlotte’s Original Outdoor Store. Since 1970, Jesse Brown’s Outdoors has been supplying anything and everything for outdoor pursuits and adventures and we are especially proud to continue this tradition now in our 52nd year. Bill Bartee and Christopher Lawing close out today’s show with an invitation to visit our online store at www.jessebrowns.com AND our brick-and-mortar store at 4732 Sharon Road, Suite 2M in Charlotte’s Premier Shopping District of SouthPark. And especially this Labor Day Weekend, there are some sales as we say ‘bye’ to summer and ‘hello’ to fall.
Until next time, watch some college football, reflect on some of your own hallowed traditions, and we’ll meet you back here on The Carolina Outdoors! Ringing In Dove Season
Another hallowed tradition to help ring in the autumn season is the Opening Day of Dove Season! The Outdoor Guys invite on Sampson Parker Jr., Wildlife Officer for Mecklenburg County, to discuss not only his responsibilities but also his ‘ins-and-outs’ recommendations for this iconic sport. Officer Parker is the only NC Wildlife Resources Commission wildlife officer assigned to Mecklenburg County, and so he, along with assistance from officers in the surrounding counties, will be making sure that dove hunters are out safely participating in the activity while also following the laws and regulations. Sounds like a busy job? He says he likes his office (the outdoors!) better than anyone else! And, as with most other outdoor activities, for those needing gear, Jesse Brown’s Outdoors is a wonderful place to turn, supplying brands like Filson to make sure the day goes off without a hitch. Kickoff To College Football!
One of these traditions to help ring in autumn, is the hallowed Kickoff To College Football! Most everyone has a team they pull for, whether it is their alma-mater or a beloved sports team in the community they now call home. But either way, all around the country, this Labor Day Weekend marks the beginning to renewed rivalries and good-fun-antics as fans line up behind their teams.
The Outdoor Guys invite on Ed Billick of WBT-Sports to discuss what this time of the year and sport season means to us all: anticipation, tradition, excitement, new beginnings, and so much more. So, make sure that as you head out to participate in the football kickoff energy this year, you include Jesse Brown’s Outdoors in the fun by grabbing one of their super comfortable GCI Outdoor chairs for some lean-back-and-relax gridiron viewing (before you jump up and down cheering for your team, of course)! Traditions & Transitions
Today’s entire podcast and segment series revolves around one theme: the importance of traditions as we move forward in life. And, as the Outdoor Guys kick off today’s show, Bill Bartee and Christopher Lawing discuss this topic in a way that is very near and dear to Jesse Brown’s Outdoors‘ heart – Christopher’s “Charlotte Signs Project” and the stories that come along with some of these hallowed Queen City places.
Listen in as the *new* Penguin Drive-In Restaurant is discussed as well as Christopher’s new exhibit, “Charlotte: Signs Of Home”, at the Charlotte Museum Of History. Jesse Brown’s Outdoors is proud to carry Christopher’s book, “Charlotte: The Signs Of The Times” for those occasions that deserve a unique gift, for someone wanting to take a trip down memory lane, or for those wanting to learn more about the community they call home!
And make sure to reflect on this: what are some traditions that give meaning to your life and flavor to your life story?
