ITS Tactical Turns 1, Come Celebrate!

by April 1, 2010 04/1/10

It’s hard to believe that a year ago today, we started ITS Tactical.

At that time, we didn’t know whether we’d find a niche in this industry, or whether people would be interested in the information we presented.

We just knew that we were passionate about creating an open-source community of different methods, ideas and knowledge that could one day save your life.

Well, here we are a year into it, and so much has happened. We’ve had tremendous support from our readers, great discussions, awesome guest posts, and you! Yes you! If there was a way we could thank each one of you individually for the support you’ve shown, we’d do it in a heart beat.

That may not be entirely possible, but we can try this...

An ITS Celebration

Since our readers come from all over the world, we’ll have to just invite everyone to Texas! If you’re up for celebrating the first year of ITS with us, we’re having a party on May 29th July 17th somewhere in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. We’d hoped to finalize the details before now, but it’s challenging to find a location when you don’t know how many people you’re inviting!

So, instead of an evite, which I can’t stand, drop a comment below and let us know if you’re interested in coming out to celebrate with us. Further details will follow once we get a rough head count.

A Week of Giveaways

Ok, now what about those of you who can’t make the trip? Not to worry, we’ve got something for you too!

To celebrate our 1st Anniversary, we’re going to have a giveaway every day for the next week! Yes, 7 days of awesome prizes for you to win free of charge, we’re even paying for shipping!

Starting a little later today, you’ll see the first giveaway show up, followed by one each day until April 7th. The normal rules will still apply from our Reader Appreciation Contests, so be sure to check out that link to be prepared.

We’re also going to wait to announce the winners of each day’s contests until next Thursday, April 8th.

Once again, a huge thank you to all our readers for making ITS Tactical all that its become. We’re looking forward to another awesome year, and have tons of great things planned!

Created in one year from just a great idea. Quite an accomplishment! Happy to be a plank supporter! Your site fulfills a need and you're giving it a 1000% effort. It's much appreciated by us all.

Opportunity and preparation meet at ITS. Thanks, and this is just the first of many birthdays.

ITS is proud to have helped sponsor a Military Appreciation Night that our local NAHL Hockey Team, the Lone Star Brahamas, are skating in on Wednesday November, 26th. The team will be wearing these special edition jerseys that feature a new ITS Military Appreciation design that’s placed directly over the fight strap location.

The ITS Crew will be hanging out at the game that night so keep an eye out for us and come say hi if you’ll be there! Who knows what a fight strap on a hockey jersey is for?

Designed in house at ITS and built by our friends at Bombsquad Longboarding, a local skate shop here in TX, the ITS Threeper Skate Decks are great for sliding, pools, bowls and all around street riding.
