What People Don’t Know About Your Area Is Frightening

Chamber Pros Insider Tip #63

 

I am sure this sort of thing never happens at your chamber but it did happen at ours, a lot.

A person would stop by to ask if anyone ever did any boating or fishing in our area. Now, you might think this is a legitimate question. Not all communities would have boating or fishing.

But our chamber was located at the toe of Hood Canal (Belfair) in Washington State. We had boating, fishing, clamming, hiking, hunting, off-roading, you name it.

Anything you could do outdoors, we had it. Yet some people somehow didn’t know it.

We once had someone ask if there was a local place to ride dirt bikes. Are you kidding me? How could you own a dirt bike and not know about the Tahuya State Forest? It’s world-class. That’s like saying you don’t know about the scuba diving in the 600 feet deep Hood Canal. People came from around the world for it.

The point of all of this? Not every one knows, even if they should, all the things to see and do around your community. It is shocking what people don’t know.
