I can tell you these visiting outdoor media folks were very impressed with our region. It was a busy weekend of informational seminars, social engagements, product demonstrations and networking. Our outdoor resources no doubt left a lasting impression on those who traveled here that so often associate all of New York with New York City. Those of us who live up here have always known better and now people all around the country will also when they’re treated to the material provided by the attendees.
Kudos go out not only to OWAA and their staff for a well organized conference but especially to all those in the Lake Placid region who welcomed us to town. The fairly new conference center is a first rate facility, as are the people who run it. I had a fantastic time. Elizabeth Lee was there also plans to tell you more about the weekend in her column on this page in next week’s issue.
