Setup Video: KDStarshade 400 & 800

Last we unveiled the set up video for the KD StarTwin 685 & 1320.  This week, we have another set up video to showcase for the KDStarshade 400 & 800. If you are looking to add a strong branding and professionalism to your event, check out the video here.

The setup is less than 45 minutes and the tear down is a breeze. Here are some written instructions as well.

Your package should contain a measuring cable, center plate, 6 steel stakes, steel assist bar, jack handle, center pole (5 sections), stake puller and your fabric top.

Place your center plate into the ground and attach the middle loop of the measuring cable, take the other two ends and walk away until the cable is taught. Walk in a large circle to make sure that your area for the canopy is clear.

When holding both ends of the cable place your first stake. Then, take one end of the cable and place it on your stake and the other end on the center plate, hold the middle loop of the cable and walk away until it is taught on both ends, now place your 2nd stake, repeat this process until all 6 stakes are set into the ground.

Roll your fabric out and place the aluminum cuffs over the end of the stake

Take your aluminum poles out of the bag, leaving the protective tubing inside the bag, put the poles together making sure that the jack is at the bottom and the dome is at the top.

Place assist bar through hole in jack and use two people to pick up the pole and walk under the fabric. Place the dome cap into the steel ring and keep walking forward. Once taught, have two people lift up on the assist bar and lift the pole onto the center plate.

Use crank handle to tension the canopy until you can feel the fabric snap back, be careful not to over tension your canopy. Enjoy the shade and the marketing impact!

Golf Tournament for Kids Mobility Network: Q&A with Matt from KD KAnopy

The KD Cares for Kids Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Matt from KD Kanopy had some insight to the success of this year’s charity Golf Tournament for Kids Mobility Network. He spoke about what makes events like this successful, and the importance of giving back to the community. Read on to see some upcoming events from our sponsors as well!

Q: What was the biggest success of the tournament?

Matt: The biggest success is that we had good friends and partners that are willing to take time away from their jobs and family to help others.  This was the largest tournament that KD Kanopy has put on.  In 2013 we had 90 participants and this year we had 144.  It shows that people believe and supports what KD Kanopy is doing in the community.

Q: Why are tournaments like this important to give back to the community?

Matt: Tournaments like this are important in giving back to the community because so many of us our blessed with success and health.  When you step out of your bubble and look around you notice that their are many kids and families that struggle to make everything work.  When you add in a health issue or disability and see how little help is out there for some families, it feels good to offer some financial and hopefully emotional support.

Q: What are you most proud of with the tournament?

Matt: We are most proud of the fact that we raised well over 10K and that Peter and Christy will be able to use that money fivefold and help lots of families.  I hope the word gets spread around what a wonderful idea and charity Peter and Christy have developed.

We are also very excited to report that the silent auction raised $3,555! KD Kanopy is truly grateful to all the participants and the community. And, of course, the sponsors! Check out some things they have coming up this August:

Harley Davidson

  • Ice cream social this Saturday, the 9th! Enjoy some FREE ice cream at Avalanche Harley-Davidson, 8000 W Colfax Ave. 11am- 3pm.
  • Also through this Saturday- receive $1,000 when you purchase a pre-owned Harley Davidson Motorcycle.

Pasco

  • The Walk N’Roll- Benefiting the Rocky Mountain Rett Association is this Saturday, August 9th! At Clement Park, 7306 West Bowles Ave, Littleton, CO 80123. Start time is 8:30 AM.
  • This event is to raise  awareness for those living with Rett Syndrome. Rett Syndrome is a neurological disorder seen exclusively in females. It is the only autism-spectrum disorder with a known genetic cause. A girl with Rett Syndrome is born around the world every 2 hours.

Plains End, LLC

  • Plains End doesn’t have too many events coming up this month. But we are so grateful for the time and energy they put into our golf tournament!
  • A fun Fact about Plains End Power Plant is at an elevation of about 6,000 ft., it is said to be the world’s largest gas engine power plant!

Q&A With Peter Kopp from Kids Mobility Network

The KD Cares for Kids Annual Charity Golf Tournament

The KD Cares for Kids Annual Charity Golf Tournament took place on July 28th and it couldn’t have gone better! We asked Peter Kopp, from Kids Mobility Network, what he thought the best elements of the tournament were.

Q: What was the biggest success of the tournament?

I think the biggest success of the tournament was about the results.  The KD Kanopy Team and the Kids Mobility Network team came together to create a very positive impact to the community.  Some of the positive results include:

  •  Community Benefit - Money raised to serve children in our community.  We expect these figures to exceed $10,000.  With these funds, Kids Mobility Network will create community benefit that will surpass 5 times the amount raised!  $10,000 in cash becomes $50,000 of community benefit!  That’s huge!
  •  Relationships – Kids Mobility Network created a lasting bond with KD Kanopy.  Kids Mobility Network creates a vehicle for KD Kanopy Cares to maximize their community benefit.  KD Kanopy Cares provides critical funding to Kids Mobility Network to continue its good work.  Though the process of planning, organizing and implementing the tournament, the combined team created a friendship in giving that will last for years.  The team combined their talents, skills and desire for community service to create value for our community.  We also witnessed relationships and bonds between participants to join KD Kanopy Cares to serve the community in a fun environment.
  • Exposure – KD Kanopy Cares provided Kids Mobility Network with an opportunity to reach a new audience to share the organization’s mission to serve children with disabilities.  Kids Mobility Network provided KD Kanopy with exposure to new potential customers.  This exposure provides value for both organizations.

Q: Why are tournaments like this important to give back to the community?

I believe that when people create success for themselves, it’s important to give back to the community.  This tournament provides a fun and relaxed environment for people to support a sector of the community that is largely invisible to many.  The tournament creates a venue for members of our community that have some resources to become aware of a problem in our community that has a solution, but requires additional resources.  This tournament creates a simple way for them to “help the helper” to make a profound impact in the lives of many families that without Kids Mobility Network watch their children with disabilities go without service.

Q: What are you most proud of with the tournament?

I am most proud of the collaboration that this tournament illustrates.  We combine people that have created success in life with their business skills, people that are early in their careers developing their business skills, and a desire to help children in need, and turn that into a fun event that brings people together to share in a common goal.  Funds raised during this event are an important catalyst to allowing Kids Mobility Network to better serve the community and expand the amount of community benefit provided.

We can’t wait to get started on next year’s tournament.  I think we can make it better every year!

We also want to say THANK YOU to our sponsors Avalanche Harley Davidson, Plains End and Pasco! Thanks to you all, this is sure to be a successful event for years to come.

The likes of ZZ Top, Bruno Mars and the Zac Brown Band will grace the stage of this outdoor amphitheater situated at the base of the foothills in Greenwood Village, Colorado.

The Trio framed tents are offered in three cover styles depending on your aesthetic needs. Both of these semi-permanent structures also come equipped with an exclusive high quality 18 oz. lacquer-coated, black-out vinyl, weatherproof cover, which makes handling, storage, installation and cleaning a breeze.
