A lot happens in March. Winter ends. Spring begins. Trees start budding. Bulbs start blooming. St. Patrick’s Day brings out the green in everyone with parades and parties. It’s Red Cross Month. It’s Women’s History Month. Perhaps most anticipated (with the exception of possibly St. Patrick’s Day festivities) is the onset of MARCH MADNESS.
March means serious college basketball for a lot of basketball fans. Even people not typically big basketball fans get caught up in the excitement, anxiously filling out brackets – some checking odds, studying seeds and reviewing stats. Others selecting winners based solely on if they like the name of the team or because the school is their alma mater!
With the Sweet Sixteen teams set, Midwest Dowel thought it would be interesting to offer a March Madness sale for the rest of the month on our full line of dowel rods, dowel pins, moulding, spindles, pegs, toy parts and other wood parts. As Midwest Dowel’s manufacturing facility is located in the hills of Ohio, we are thrilled to have so many Ohio teams in the Sweet Sixteen – Ohio University (where Midwest Dowel President, Pete Puttmann graduated), Xavier University, University of Cincinnati, Ohio State, and schools in neighboring states Indiana and Kentucky: Indiana University, University of Louisville, and University of Kentucky! It’s stacking up to be a very exciting tournament for the Ohio Valley!
Through the end of March, all Midwest Dowel customers can enjoy a 5% discount off their entire order – everything from mini bats to shaker pegs to drum sticks! Simply mention this blog at the time of placing your order, and you will receive the discount!
Happy woodworking! And, enjoy the basketball games! Lots more March Madness excitement to come. And, if you are in the area, please stop by and visit Midwest Dowel Works. We would love to have you visit!
