Nordy’s BBQ & Graham’s Carpet Network Host Ultimate Fishing Experience Viewing Party February 23
Businesses helped reality show remodel wounded Brighton veteran’s home
Loveland, Colorado – Graham’s Carpet Network, northern Colorado’s traveling floor and window covering store, and Nordy’s BBQ’s Loveland location will host a February 23 viewing party of the reality show Ultimate Fishing Experience. The UFE episode, shot in early January, features materials and labor provided by Graham’s Carpet Network, while Nordy’s catered five days of lunches for the cast and crew when the show remodeled an injured military veteran’s Brighton home. The show is scheduled to premiere at 6:30 Mountain time Thursday, February 23, and be aired as a re-broadcast on March 22.
Ultimate Fishing Experience on NBC Sports Network (formerly Versus) is similar to Extreme Home Makeover, with dream fishing destinations and outdoor activities. The program chose Aaron Bugg of Brighton as the subject for episode #5. Aaron's wife Lisa, in cooperation with the show, went with him to Tampa, FL to fish and enjoy a trip to Disney.
While they were gone, a team – including Graham’s Carpet Network, their vendors, distributors, manufacturers and installer friends – retrofitted the Bugg home to make it more modern, accessible and user-friendly. Graham’s provided new carpet and hardwood floors, and the crew installed a new stove, refrigerator, washer/dryer, and jetted tub to help Aaron with residual pain in his legs from an IED injury. Aaron and Lisa returned home with a motorcycle escort to a celebration with the retrofit team, neighbors, family, and others.
“It was truly one of the most touching, moving experiences I’ve ever been a part of,” said Katie Ingram, Graham’s Carpet Network office manager. “The way the community rallied around this project to help a man wounded while serving his country was amazing.”
Graham’s was invited to participate in the show’s production through one of their commercial customers, Kirk Muhlenbruck of Century Three Senior Housing in Windsor. Kirk’s son, Blake, owns Naked Bait Co. Inc. in Evans, knows the show’s producers, and coordinated the project with local non-profit American Military Families.
