Calling all rad dads!  We are looking for dads who are not afraid to spend quality time doing fun stuff with their kids. For example, the dads that play dress up with their kids, show their kids how to ride a dirt bike, take their kids to concerts, or love teaching their kids proper hunting ethics. Basically, we are looking for dads that are good at being DADS. Nominate yourself or a friend for this year’s Rad Dad photo contest for a chance to score some rad prizes.

Grand Prize:

*("BIGUN" is the nickname KC's dad got while in combat in Vietnam. Over the last decade, he has had the hobby of making knives, as a way to treat his PTSD. Each knife is unique, and no two are alike. A special gift from our RAD Dad to your RAD Dad this fathers day.)
