I hope everybody is enjoying the beautiful Fall so far. Thank you to all that supported and/or attended the Roadkill Supper. I think we may have to move up the date or the time so it’s not so cold next year.
One thing I really want to stress is the new 2018 Grand County GuestGuide that is going to have 90,000 publications printed for distribution before Thanksgiving, 2017. If you own a “tourism based business”, this is something you definitely want to be a part of.
This publication will be one condensed easy-to-read publication featuring a section on Winter Park, Fraser, Tabernash, Granby, Grand Lake, HSS, Parshall and Kremmling. They will be distributed to all of the visitor centers throughout the state of Colorado as well as the Chambers, lodging and other establishments.
If you would like to advertise your business, the space must be reserved by the end of September. Half will be paid at the time you reserve the space and the final 50% is due in December. The more businesses we have listed in the guide, the bigger the section on Kremmling will be.
We will have a two page write-up on Kremmling detailing the town and all of the activities in winter and spring. There will also be a map, and at the back of the book a section with a dining chart, lodging chart, activities chart, and shopping chart.
I for one, am super excited to have one comprehensive guide to hand out to visitors! Many people traveling through Grand County cannot rely on their phones and mobiles apps due to sparse cell service.
Please reserve your space by the end of the week if you are interested. The cheapest ad is 1/8 page for $525.
