10 Snowmobile VERMONT VAST News PUBLIC RELATIONS MARKETING The past year has been whirlwind of excitement for the PR Marketing committee. We started off with the Snowmobile Vermont magazine taking root and being a huge success. Not to mention that we have the VAST logo wear available on the revamped VAST website The magazine website and logowear are only a part of what has taken place. We have participated in tradeshows like the SAM show in Springfield Mass. the Yankee Sportsman Classic in Essex Jct. Vermont and we are looking at even more in the upcoming year. We are also working with local organizations like the Vermont Outdoor Women local area Chamber of Commerces and Vermont Outdoor Guide Association VOGA. We have also worked with out-of-state organizations as well like American Snowmobiler magazine. We will also continue to support other committees and as always our local clubs. It has been a busy year and we are looking at an even busier year to come. We will be participating in more tradeshows expanding the website logowear continuing our work with more local organizations a VAST sponsored snow event perhaps a snowmobile video safety campaign kids coloring book and as always promoting VAST in a positive manner. We are focusing on getting the message out about what is required to ride in Vermont. Campaigns to increase awareness about laws Meet The Committee safety classes No ice is safe ice and Zero Tolerance are being expanded. Informed riders are safe riders so we all need to do our part. We are truly looking forward to what the upcoming year has to offer and I welcome any ideas suggestions questions or concerns. We look forward to meeting and seeing you out on the trails.
