Chamber Chat: 3,082 wristbands sold for downtown festival

Bookmark and Share

Hello! I have some numbers in from the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover Tour; Three thousand eighty-two wristbands were sold to get into the downtown area. Over twenty-nine thousand people bought tickets to the festival with one thousand fifty-six volunteers putting in over nine thousand one hundred seventy-eight hours. Three thousand of those hours were put in by the Chamber.   The medical teams treated 120 individuals within the event, ranging from heat exhaustion to sprained ankles. Ten of those individuals were transported as non-emergency to the hospital. On the law enforcement side there were 10 arrests within the venue sites.

The Christmas committee has been working hard all summer to make Guthrie a great destination in December. They are always looking for new people to help; you are welcome to attend any of the meetings. The next one is scheduled the 26 of this month at 6p.m. at the Energy Force building located at 115 N. Second Street. There are sponsorship opportunities available this year, if you are interested call the chamber at 282-1947.

October 8 is the Chamber’s Educational Series from noon to one; Matt Goodwin will speak about Evernote for Business and Creativity. Lunch is provided, please give us a call to reserve your spot!

I have had several calls in the office about the Apache Tree Foundation give away. This year they have not had the donations so they will not be able to give any trees away this year.

Hope you are enjoying this wonderful fall weather, have a great week!

    Wonder if you have had any feedback from the “Gentlemen” themselves. I would be interested in hearing what, if any, you have received.
