The Golden Triangle received a Grant from Travel Alberta this past December. The Grant will be used to market and promote The Golden Triangle Trail with the Whitecourt Trailblazers, Swan Hills Sno-Goers, Fox Creek Northland Snow-Goers Clubs and our 6 funding municipalities Towns of Whitecourt, Fox Creek and Swan Hills and Counties of Woodlands, Big Lakes and MD of Greenview.
We have been working with Seekers Media and SnoRiders West to develop a promotional package to include digital footage, photos and blogging/story telling via social media, websites and marketing. The promotion will become live 2 weeks from production. This past weekend, we had the crews attend Whitecourt, Fox Creek and Swan Hills to acquire footage and information to develop the promotional packaging.
Thank you to all the Clubs and all the volunteers that made this promotion happen. We are excited to share our trails and stories that come with developing, maintaining, grooming, promoting and managing the trail systems. Our communities and businesses are a special part of our trail systems; without the support of our communities our trails would not exist.
Locally: A special thank you to the Town of Whitecourt and Woodlands County for making this happen. Your support is definitely appreciated and recognized by the Whitecourt Trailblazers. Thank you to the Western Budget Whitecourt 1 https://www.facebook.com/Western-Budget-Whitecourt-1-2-105432011061553/ for donating the hotel rooms for the crew on Saturday night. Brothers Diner https://www.restaurantji.com/ab/whitecourt/brothers-diner-/ also let us invade the restaurant so we could shoot footage of having breakfast and discussing the trail itinerary for the day-thank you for donating the yummy breakfasts. Thank you to Dave Turcotte, Jace and Jerren, Cindy and Jeff Brooks for being "extras". Thanks to Jeff for the use of a sled and helmet for the filming crew.
Thank you to our "Talent" Mel and Dale Tonsi for agreeing to be in the promotion for 3 days on The Golden Triangle, it will definitely be a memorable experience for them. The crew (Jim, Paul, Mike and Tim) were super to work with and we look forward to seeing all the footage and stories to go along with the promotion. Stay tuned.
