Tahoe City Kayak continues to receive
extensive community support in the wake of the July 5 arson fire
that burned the shop down.
The fundraising event last Saturday at Sierra Vista raised $1,650
from cover charges, raffle tickets and T-shirt sales, said Kat
Terrey, head guide with Tahoe City Kayak. Roughly 120 people showed
up to groove to tunes by local bands Rusty Strings and Harm’s Way,
taking breaks only to raffle off prizes from ski boat rentals to
chiropractic sessions to savings bonds provided by local
Andy Laughlin, the owner of Tahoe City Kayak, lists off clichés
about doors opening and opportunities in crisis as he reiterated
his gratitude to the North Shore community.
“Our continued success will depend on a strong August and
September,” said Laughlin. “If we do as well or better than
previous years we’ll make it. Thanks to the continued support of
the community and excellent opportunities.”
Additionally, the shop made their debut appearance on North Lake
Boulevard between Porter’s and Fiamma last week. They are
completely moved out of their old space and now rent boats at their
new beach location behind Safeway.
Being a land-locked kayak shop was difficult, said Laughlin, and
their new retail and rental spaces enhance both convenience and
visibility for customers and employees alike.
Their creative new T-shirts express the general sentiment of Tahoe
City Kayak: “You can burn us but you can’t sink us.”
