November 20, 2012Posted in News & Events7th Annual Reel Rock Film Tour - 11/14/12 Written by Vapur Pro Team member, Laura Bylund Vapur was the exclusive water bottle of the Reel Rock Film Tour screening in Santa Barbara on Wednesday, November 14th. Organized by award-winning, even Emmy-nominated filmmakers, this climbing film tour has joined the ranks of the best adventure film tours in the world, now even outperforming most of them in its 7th year. This leg of the tour is hosted by the official outdoor program at the University of California Santa Barbara and has been held in Isla Vista Theater, one of the largest venues of its hundreds of stops worldwide, since the tour's inception. "We had a record-breaking year for pre sale tickets," said UCSB Adventure Programs Marketing Coordinator, Rachel Glago, "and would like to think it had something to do with the promise of free Vapur Anti-Bottles to the first 45 people through the door." "Everyone was really excited when they got the water bottles at the beginning of Reel Rock," said Spencer Owen, who showed up early with his roommates. "We were excited about the portability and possibilities, how they are going to be much better than carrying around heavy, solid bottles." Twenty more outdoor Element Vapur Anti-Bottles were given away to a very enthusiastic crowd over the course of the night with one lucky winner received the Vapur "trifecta," a half liter Reflex, a coveted one liter-sized Element Anti-Bottle and made complete with a "Designed to Perform" Vapur T-shirt. Needless to say, that guy was STOKED. Event coordinator, Meagan Gibson commented on how amazingly smooth and well the night went. "It was so great to have Vapur as a sponsor because so many people walked away with a prize!" "I saw a lot of people hooking the carabiner to their jeans and commenting on how cool and innovative they were," said UCSB student and Climbing Center employee, Kelsey Hargrove. "I'll definitely be using it to carry around to classes and work."
