HELP VOTE OUR TOWN INTO OUTSIDE AND TOAD&CO’S “BEST TOWNS” BRACKET FOR 2015
Santa Barbara, Calif. – April 20, 2015 – Toad&Co, sponsor of this year’s Outside magazine “Best Towns” Campaign, is pleased to announce that for the first time there will be a wild card component to select the last four towns that make the list of 64. Hood River did not make the list of 60, now we will have a chance to have ourselves voted in through a social media campaign.
Outside Magazine is the leading publication in the outdoor sport and lifestyle space. This is the first time they are implementing such a program – giving the towns a voice! Doug’s is the premier outdoor outfitter in the area. We proudly sell Toad&Co as well as Teva, Sanuk, Roxy, and more! And are thrilled to help the local community get out and explore. But just because we all know how cool our town is and how much we have to offer the outdoor- minded community, does not mean the rest of our region does. Let’s change this!
Launched April 20th, the list of 60 towns were announced by Outside. There will be an Instagram, Facebook and Twitter campaign where towns, like ourselves, have the chance to upload photos and videos using #BestTowns2015 and tag Hood River Oregon, and why you love it!. (only instagram tags count towards the contest)It’s then in our court to ensure those photos/videos have the most likes, shares, comments, and above all PASSIONATE SUPPORT.
So let’s all rally around the town we love and get ourselves voted in! Anyone can participate: individual, local school districts, companies, town-run websites, etc. The more the merrier! The cutoff for the wild card period is April 30th and winners will be announced on May 4th. It’s going to be a fast 10 days of activation, but we can do it!
