LightSpeed Tents Review & -Rafflecopter- Giveaway -- ENDED

Now that school has to started, are you all busy with your kids' after school activities? Many of my friends have kids in soccer and baseball, so they are spending plenty of time at practices and meets. For us, DD is finally settling in with her school schedule and we have been thinking about signing her up for soccer and tennis as well. From talking to my friends, I learned that sun protection and comfortable seating are essential because parents are often waiting for an hour or more for their kids to finish practicing or competition. For these parents, I think LightSpeed Tents offer products that they will find useful.

We were lucky enough to have received a quick draw to review.
Since I will be using this with DD, I opted to get one in pink and brown (DD's favorite colors). My favorite feature for the quick draw is how easy it is to open and set up the tent. I simply pull the mechanism at the top of the tent and I am able to open it up. It is really that easy. The tent has 3 side walls and it is made of UPF 50+ fabric. To weight down the tent, you can put weight on the sand pockets on the outside of the tent. However, I noticed that when I put our beach chairs inside the tent, it is enough to weight it down. I imagine that you probably need to do more on a windy day, but on a normal sunny day in Southern California, just the beach chairs are enough.
In addition to using this tent at sporting events, it could also be used at the beach or at the park. To buy one for yourself, please check your local Costco or Sam's Club.

Many thanks to LightSpeed Tents. THe company has generously offered 1 quick draw as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers. This giveaway ends on Oct 30th, 2011.
