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.
