Thank you for your Email. Our annual spring sale will be held on April 13, 14, and 15. I’m afraid that you may not have any luck finding any Appalachians in the sale as the productions numbers of this model are low and our dealers usually take our factory seconds as soon as they are available. I would call our factory outlet store and see if they may have any of these models in stock now. You can call them at 207-827-1530. Please let me know if there is any thing else I can help you with.
Jamie, Make sure you phone ahead of time before you go because they will change it without notice just days before. Last year there were alot of discovery and ojibways. It changes every year though but you would have to be quite lucky to get an appalachian. Mitchell
you know for years we took friday off, all met on site thursday night, went down to the local kick and punch and eventually made our way down to the parking lot across from the factory to camp out for the night. most of us usually manage to get up by3:3 to get in line and by 6:30 I think it is there are usually a couple hundred people there when they open the gates.
It is fun to be part of the bull run that ensues but we recently figured out that it was totally not necessary. As mitchell said Appalachians are scarce. I got mine the last year I saw them there 3 years ago. I got mine for $600 and had a buddy of mine get one 3 years prior to that for $400. Anyways, we cornered a tractor trailer driver to ask him about when more canoes of various models would be coming out. He got right on the cell phone to call other truck drivers who were all down in Bangor where Old Town has a big warehouse where they store all their stock. There were lots of canoes to come (and kayaks). The best deals and the best canoes are by no means brought out for those there Friday morning, and what is there on Friday morning is a small portion of what they bring out throughout the wkd.
With our knew found insight, we now plan on saving a holiday and heading down Saturday morning to spend the day. The transports keep rolling in, full every 2-3 hours all weekend til Sunday I think.
Now a hot tip. The locals pick us out immediately every year at the 8 ball or high nine or whatever that nearby bar is called. Every year we get confronted for a fight, which was always fun, until last year. Palmer, Nick and I spotted an inordinate amuont of VERY VERY hot young women passing directly through the bar dissapearing through a door in back. Palmer came back from a scouting mission to report that the second level of the bar (which was never there before) was FULL wall to wall of hot YOUNG chicks with a ratio of 10 to 1 women to men, all engaged in a disco ball driven full scale kareoke.
I can tell you it was all true and a sight to behold which I will surely never see again. absolutely oonreal. Nick, who is the mouth of the group, eventually found out that the bar had opened this kareoke bar and staffed it with sorority girls from university of maine orono, wicked clever trick. Of course all of the staff girls friends were there, and no shortage of them at that. I have pictures to prove all this but they fried with the last computer that blew up unfortunately.
Anyways, had to share that as it does provide some incentive to go on Thursday night.

Your little bar story sounds like an urban legend to me. I don't know which would be more scary/fun, the knuckle-duster bar or the hot chick disco. How many Pabst blue ribbons did you guys swill, anyway?
