Emilyn Sheffield was with us from Chico to discuss the State of Jefferson and Bigfoot Byway promotions that she has planned as well as promoting the eight Scenic Byways in the north state. .
In 1994 when Emily began doing cooperative marketing, she noticed a collection of drives, Feather River Scenic Byway, Lassen National Forest, Modoc, State of Jefferson, Smith River and two Trinity Scenic Byways. There will be Bigfoot Byway when Six Rivers National Forest gets approval fro received from Washington, DC.
Her project will be merchandising a calendar poster for nonprofits to sell. It will be tested in Modoc Volcanic Byway, Lassen Park Scenic Byway and Trinity because it it spread out collection of towns and if it works there it will work anyway. There will be space for a local chamber to personalize it.
She is setting up as small advisory committee and will have representatives fro retail, nonprofit, (like Chamber of Commerce) Community, and private sector like John Thompson from Redwood, and each byway to have a representative from Forest Service, tourism and community.
If she can get a sponsor to pay for mugs in Weaverville to get a minimum order of 144 mugs with 6 colors, w could "bootleg" it and make one for Jefferson and Bigfoot Byways. The suggestion was made to use grey scale illustrations and gold lettering for a much less expensive mug. It would make a good figt for Chamber members to give.
There was discussion on place-mats and publications like "All the restaurants along the byway All the guides along the byway" etc.A tabletop with four 4x9 panels is int he works for the Trinity River, Trinity Heritage, State of Jefferson and Bigfoot Byways, They could later be cut for rack cards. She was also talking of key chains, Stickers (luggage labels) magnets, collector cards, clocks and bumper stickers. It will probably be let out to the communities to use as long as they don't change the design or colors but it mus be used to promote northern California's byways and non-revocable, but may be licensed. No one will get it ahead of time except calendar posters or if we wanted to do the mug project. Emilyn is trying to get someone to get a catalog out. Gini mentioned that mugs and t-shirts go best and maybe a magnet for $3 or less.
There was also talk of a town, like Happy Camp, or museum or activity wanted a similar graphic to use like a logo in connection with the scenic byway program that could be made for $500.00. there was the idea of putting up metal silkscreen signs at River Access/Campgrounds & Colliers and Bulletin boards telling towns especially and showing services and activities available. The 800 number to use on the State of Jefferson was discussed but will be decided January. Emilyn felt that it is critical that we get back into Colliers Rest Area.
Due to lack of quorum, not bills were paid, minutes were not approved, and no official business was held in the month of October. Please attend whenever possible especially Board members.
Next regularly scheduled meeting is on November 3rd (election day) at the Lions/Scout Hall. Wednesday meetings will be November 11 (Veterans Day) 18th, and 25th. Chamber sponsored pool tournament is coming soon. Hope you posted the flier sent to you last month
