2018 Vacation Planner - NEED RESPONSE ASAP!

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Wednesday, November 29th, 2017 @ 8:08am

I have secured two full pages in the Central Adirondack Association's 2018 Vacation Planner and I want to share it with you.  I would like to offer you 1/12th of Inlet's page in full color for only $250.
 

60,000 copies of this vacation planner will be printed and distributed all over New York and surrounding states.  This is what Inlet, Old Forge and Long Lake hand out and send through the mail when people inquire about visiting the area.  This is also what I try to make sure is in every area event goodie bag.  Each town has a link on their websites directing people to this publication.  Click here to view it online.  Inlet's two-page spread in the 2017 planner is on pages 24 & 25.
 

If you are interested in advertising with me, please contact me ASAP.  I need to have the ad done by November 28th.
 

Linen and Laundry Services

E-mail sent by IABA, Tuesday, November 28th, 2017 @ 12:52pm

Dear Fellow Business's,

I have been working on researching whether or not there is a need or interest in the community to seek out alternative options for out of house linen and laundry services.  Meaning, napkins, table linens, kitchen rags, hotel towels, sheets, etc. 

We have been partnering with Warrensburg Linen but when seeking competitive options we found they were the only supplier servicing our area. I have made some headway in discussing opportunities in servicing our area with other suppliers but before I continue down this path I wanted to see if there was any additional interest from other business's that are either already doing this or would like to consider it. 

 We will be discussing this at the next IABA meeting on Dec 5th and I urge anyone interested in weighing in on the topic to attend!  The more I can gather what your individual business needs are the better I can assist in formulating a plan to help come up with a solution that benefits us all!

I often find starting a business in the area the same issues I face and solutions I seek are likely the same issues others are facing as well!

Best Regards,

Britta

Dog Sled Rides During Frozen Fire & Lights

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Saturday, November 18th, 2017 @ 11:53am

I have been contacted for the second year in a row by Roy Smith of Adirondack Kennel in the Tug Hill area who would like to bring his dog sled team to Inlet and offer rides during Frozen Fire & Lights.

To have him set up at Fern Park and offer rides for two hours would cost $500.  Most places he goes, someone pays for this and the rides are free to the spectators.  Sometimes whoever paid him will then collect a $3 per person fee to try to cover the cost.  He also would be willing to give to us a Tour for a family of 4 at his location in Tug Hill to raffle off.

Looking for thoughts, ideas, and if there is interest in pursuing this, maybe sponsors to make it happen?

Cycle Adirondacks

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Wednesday, November 8th, 2017 @ 1:54pm

Good meeting last night!  26 of us gathered at The Toboggan Inn for a regular monthly meeting.  Minutes from the meeting will be posted later.  I just wanted to mention something that I failed to make sure was on the agenda.

This Tuesday, Cycle Adirondacks will be announcing the route for their 2018 tour, which will include a 2-night stay in Inlet.  The week-long tour will take place August 18-24.  It is capped at 200 participants and 3/4 of them already have signed up without even knowing what the route will be.  In addition to the 200 participants there will be volunteers and staff to make this an intimate cycling vacation.  

During their stay here, many of them will be camping at Fern Park, but some will be looking for accommodations within a 5-mile radius of downtown.  So I wanted to give the lodging businesses a heads up that they may be getting inquiries soon after the November 14th announcement.  They will arrive in town late afternoon (possibly that Monday), spend the next day with us and then head out to their next destination the second morning.  While they are here they will be shopping and looking for activities.

They will be arranging for some vendors and live music to be set up somewhere close to (but not in) camp both nights.  This will be open to the public to join them.  They also have a partnership with the Adirondack Foundation that lets them seed and raise funds for for community projects in their host towns.

We are looking forward to working with the Cycle Adirondacks team and looking forward to having their participants stay with us in August.  Check out their website for more information at www.cycleadirondacks.com

The live route reveal will be during an event that starts at 1:00 p.m. at Tannery Pond Community Center in North Creek on November 14th.  If anyone is interested in attending this event. let me know.

Sunday of Adirondack Christmas on Main Street

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 @ 1:14pm

Looking for a place that will be open on Sunday, November 26th that is willing to host a Happy Hour from 5:00-6:00 p.m. and maybe offer drink and/or snack specials.  During the Happy Hour we will pull the winner of the Holiday Basket Raffle.

Halloween in Inlet

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Tuesday, October 24th, 2017 @ 8:55am

There will be a Trunk-or-Treat going on at Fern Park this Friday starting at 4:00 p.m. and lasting until the Inlet Youth Commission's Parade & Party starts at 6:30 p.m.  The parade forms at the church parking lot, parades to Inlet Town Hall then everyone is invited to the IVES building for costume judging and treats.

If you would like to decorate your vehicle and hand out treats at Fern Park, you are most welcome to do so.  And you do not have to stay the whole time.  Our friends Walter and Jane have a bunch of animated Halloween decorations that they will be setting up for all to enjoy.  And they will be there the whole time with treats, but would love some company.

If you are in the Inlet/Eagle Bay area and plan to be home on Halloween (Tuesday) to hand out treats, or plan to leave treats out, please let me know so I can include you on the list that will be handed out to all the Inlet area children (and others who request it).

And for the adults, Great Pines is having an End of Season/Halloween Party Friday night and Screamen Eagle will hold their annual Halloween Party on Saturday night.  Both start at 7:00 p.m.

Happy Halloween!

Adirondack Christmas on Main Street - Please Respond!

E-mail sent by Inlet Information Office, Saturday, October 21st, 2017 @ 4:16pm

Please respond as soon as possible!  It is difficult for me to promote the event, when I only have 3 open businesses.

Adirondack Christmas on Main Street will be November 24-26, 2017.  All businesses can participate - you do not need to be open!  If you donate something for the Basket Raffle, your name and website or phone number will be listed.

Please fill out the attached form and return to the Inlet Information Office as soon as possible.  I have created a page on InletNY.com under Events that will list all of the activities going on that weekend and will also list all of the shops that will be open.  Please respond so I can list you there!  Advertising for this event has already started, it will be nice for people to be able to see that we will be open!

Thank you!
