Find A Hidden Coaster And You Can Win $

 

Join The Treasure Hunt and Win

Play outside someplace new this winter and you can both win prizes and support local outdoor businesses and organizations.

As part of the New Basecamps guide produced by the Vermont Outdoor Business Alliance (VOBA) in partnership with Vermont Sports a treasure hunt will be held in each region between November 30 – January 31, 2020.

What Do I Win?

VOBA log coasters worth $65 in goods or services will be hidden in easily accessible and weather-protected locations. Lucky  adventurers who find one can redeem the object at one of the listed businesses or donate to one of the featured organizations from the guide.

Where Will the Coasters Be Hidden?

Vermont’s “outdoor recreation-friendly” communities are exemplifying the story of how the outdoors can drive community health and thriving economies.

Thanks to a state Restart marketing grant, VOBA teamed up with Vermont Sports to profile nine communities that received $300,000 in state grants from the Vermont Outdoor Recreation Economic Collaborative to leverage outdoor recreation assets.

Check out the profiles in the 30th anniversary November/December 2020 issue of Vermont Sports for winter recreation activities and local businesses in the Vermont outdoor hubs of Newport, Island Pond/Brighton, Craftsbury, St Albans, Montpelier, Randolph, Poultney, Springfield, Rockingham, and Bellows Falls.

Reminder of COVID-19 precautions:

The pandemic has created limitations for recreating in the outdoors with others or shopping in person. Use the guide to find a local, quiet outdoor space where you can get outdoors safely with your family. If you find the hidden object, check the webpage of the business before you stop by for the latest customer safety precautions.

Thanks for enjoying the outdoors and supporting businesses in Vermont!
