What a weekend!  Trails and Vistas 2009 proved to be yet another enchanted weekend for over 700 individuals.  Our talented, dedicated and eclectic artists put on a seemingly effortless performance in a variety of elements – ensuring a great time for all.  If you weren’t able to join us this year, don’t worry, September 11-12, 2010 is right around the corner.

From a planning perspective, we’re proud to report that we exceeded the majority of our goals.  Those included:

  • A sell-out event, third year in a row.
  • Enhanced communications to both confirmed attendees and prospective attendees, utilizing social media as an added marketing tool.
  • Tactical and responsive planning by our new “working” Board of Directors.
  • The addition of an email based research component to ensure successful planning and marketing for 2010.
  • A merchandising program for our artists the weekend of the event, to help promote and sell their merchandise / CD’s.
  • An increase in practice hikes for trail leaders, to help accentuate attendee experiences.
  • Successful private donor development, to help offset decrease in grants.
