Tourism Advisory Council introduces Lincoln County challengeTell North Platte what you think

The North Platte / Lincoln County Tourism Advisory Council, in partnership with local attractions, once again hosted a tourism challenge, aimed to get frontline employees to experience what the community has to offer to visitors.

Recognizing that frontline staff will be more enthusiastic about our attractions and give directions to get there if they have experienced it for themselves, the TAC created the program.

During National Tourism Week, the staff of the Visitors Bureau and volunteers from the Tourism Advisory Council delivered challenge cards to 100 businesses that included hotels, motels and campgrounds, restaurants and bars, service stations and convenience stores.

Attractions that participated in the Tourism Challenge include: Nebraskaland Days, Dusty Trails, Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park, the Lincoln County Historical Museum, Golden Spike Tower and Visitor Center, Cody Park Carousel, Cody Park Train Display, River’s Edge Golf Course, North Platte Area Children’s Museum, Prairie Arts Center, North Platte Art and Gift Gallery, North Platte Community Playhouse, Wild Bills Wings and Bowling, North Platte / Lincoln County Visitors Bureau, Fort Cody Trading Post, Cody Go-Karts, Iron Eagle Golf Course, North Platte Regional Airport, Indian Meadows Golf Course, Grain Bin Antique Town, Feather River Vineyards, Lake Maloney Golf Course, Fort McPherson National Cemetery, and Pals Brewing Company.

The challenge began on May 15 and ran through June 15. The completed cards were put in a drawing for three $100 gift cards from the Tourism Advisory Council.

Participants winning the prizes were Helen Keslar from the Visitors Bureau, Becky McAllister from Fort Cody Trading Post and Amber Wagner from the Lincoln County Historical Museum.

The mission of the North Platte / Lincoln County Tourism Advisory Council is to build a better public understanding of the benefits of the tourism industry and establish a forum for the exchange of ideas, information and experiences regarding the tourism industry.
