February CVB Report

The CVB is now providing free WiFi for downtown. About 60% of the Square is covered and we can cover more in the future. This WiFi is not intended to provide internet service for the businesses on the Square but is there for the use of the visitors.

The RV space issue at the Expo Center is going to be a critical issue for Glen Rose. My fear is that if someone does not step up to the plate we are going to lose the AJRA event and will be hindered from getting future large events.

We have a tentative deal to host the Professional Armed Forces Rodeo Association National Finals in Glen Rose on the weekend of November 20. This is a show the CVB is helping to produce and will receive most of the revenue in the initial stages. We hope we can make this a permanent event and in the future the responsibility will shift more to their. I have had an initial discussion with RFD-TV and they are interested in televising the event and have made a tentative offer to do so. I also have an idea for a national sponsor I think I can bring to the table, especially with the television coverage.

OakdaleParkis proceeding. The interior of the office and roof are finished. Two cabins are finished and were supposed to be roofed this past weekend. They will be furnished this week and ready to rent. I encourage the council to stop by and check it all out. We have also finalized the details for the Goat Cook-Off this summer and the Woodcarving Show in April.

Every month there is a bluegrass jam session and potluck supper at the skating rink at Oakdale. The people that put it on would like to invite the mayor and city council to the one on Feb. 13. I will have to get you the time.

As always the Glen Rose Convention & Visitors Bureau is working to find new and innovative ways to market and promote Glen Rose and Somervell County. If any of you have any questions or needs concerning the CVB, please do not hesitate to contact me or Joyce.
