HELD OVER AGAIN! - DECODING THE DRIFTLESS

THE RIVOLI THEATRE

La Crosse, WI

Join us for a wild ride of adventure above, on, and below the amazing Driftless Region!

Emmy- winning filmmakers George Howe, Tim Jacobson, Rob Nelson, and Neil Rettig have teamed up with Jonas Stenstrom of Untamed Science, to capture fantastic footage of the Driftless Region, and weave it into a compelling story, in a way never done before. 
You`ll soar over ancient rugged bluffs, skim the surface of primordial rivers, venture deep underground to mysterious secret worlds, marvel at sacred archeological treasures, and hang perilously over massive rock cliffs. One thing for sure, you’ll never forget this film, and you`ll want to share it with everyone you know!

An Update and Request...
To:         Driftless Area / Region Supporters
From:    Ken Harwood Editor Wisconsin Development News
                   Editor@DriftlessNotes.com – 608.334.2174
Re:        Driftless Notes and DriftlessNotes.com

Note:    Please forward this to the appropriate decision maker in your organization.

Greetings, I am getting many requests to continue to send the Driftless Notes weekly email and maintain the DriftlessNotes.com website.  Unfortunately I have run out of funds to do so.  This is a reasonably affordable venture considering the 10,000 unique recipients including: travel writers, previous visitors, businesses, professionals, developers, elected officials, and other interested in “The Driftless”.

We can continue to use the Wisconsin Development platform and email systems but we still need a monthly income to collect and update our data bases (all professionals, officials, and businesses in the region), compose / edit the email, and send and track the results. We also previously referred contacts to the appropriate professionals and businesses in the region.

Driftless Notes has no marketing arm or outreach so this single email will have to do. We are looking for 16  communities (cities, counties, towns), 16 businesses and 16 organizations (i.e. Planning, Chambers, Economic Development And Conservation Organizations) to commit to $10 per week as sponsors of the publication and website. Currently we fill these spaces with those who have just expressed interest in the project.

Each sponsor will have their logo, link to their website, appear at the top of the list of appropriate business category, and special attention to news pertaining to them will be featured when appropriate in the weekly email. We will also refer requests about the region to the appropriate sponsors first. Fore example in the past we have had request from travel writers, land donors, development projects and visitors or tourists.

If you are interested let me know – DO NOT SEND MONEY – I will not invoice you until I can guarantee one full year of emails and web maintenance. You will receive a contract outlining these commitments from Driftless Notes.
 
Our goal is simple – Promote the Driftless, specifically:
  • Brand Identity For The Driftless Region And Our Products
  • Highlight The Venues, Events, And Activities Throughout The Region Year Around
  • "Driftless" Recognition At The State, Regional, National, And Global Levels
  • Regional Economic Development, New Jobs, And Training
  • Sustaining And Growing The Existing Businesses In The Region
  • Tourism - Including Traditional, Ag, Sports, Nature And Eco Tourism
  • Promoting Special Events In The Region
  • Promote And Support Agriculture - Especially Organic Farming And Products
  • Land Conservation And Use In The Driftless
  • Environmental Issues That Impact The Driftless Region
  • A Legislative Agenda That Supports The Region In Four States
  • Showcase Opportunities For Investors, Visitors And Residents Unique To The Driftless Region
There are many organizations that do some of the above and we applaud their efforts, our goal is to create an umbrella that ties all of them together working for the region. Please email or call if you are interested Ken Harwood Editor Wisconsin Development News – Editor@DriftlessNotes.com – 608.334.2174.
