Thank you Union

18 Dec, 2009

Last week I had my gear stolen out of the back of my truck while in Summit County and as much as I believe bad karma will get the person, good karma also came my way in the form of a package yesterday.  The C3 family took care of me and sent me out a package of bindings to replace my stolen ones, complete with a high 5 from a very nice hand.

I’m not exactly sure what binding arrived in the mail for me because it’s a mix of Force/Force SL/Force MC parts made into 2 bindings but I love it!  It’s also purple which seems to be my color this year.

I’ve been having a rough week so getting the bindings replaced definitely helped cheer me up.  So thank you Union, I really appreciate it!

    That’s why I support C3. They’re my local peeps. I love my Union bindings and Coal beanies. 🙂

    Well, I guess my decision has just been made as to which binding company I will be going with next. (Not that I really ever didn’t consider Union’s.)

    I was on the fence about buying a pair of Union bindings this year, but after reading this it’s not even a question. Good companies deserve support. Thanks for giving a hoot about customers C3.

    Damn Shay! My heart just dropped. I went to 2nd Tracks this afternoon and picked up a Lotus 154 for my wife for Christmas. I got home and checked your review on this board and saw yours was stolen. After breaking out in a cold sweat I realized yours was a 157. Mixed feelings on the outcome. I would have loved to get your board back and have the pleasure of busting some scumbag but I am pleased my wife will have a great ride.
    Anyway, I am one of the trainers at the Basin and will be on the lookout for your board. Last season a complete moron, loser was busted at the Basin riding a custom Vapor that he stole at Keystone. Thieves are stupid.
