Ever wonder why certain large-scale projects take longer to prepare for than others? Or why engineering/consultation services are required? Large-scale projects that involve community paths, roads, and lagoon structures can take one-to-three years to prepare for, while the purchase of fleet or other smaller equipment items (e.g., carvewright machine, HVACs, generators, etc.) can take as little as two-to-four months of preparation.
The second annual Marina Day took place on Saturday, August 4. Despite the heat, Marina Day proved to be a fun and exciting event for all who attended. This year, a strong focus on boater safety flares.
Year-to-Date July Performance and our Fall Marketing Plans
As I reported in July’s Landings Journal, our new marketing firm, Wyse Advertising, began working with us on June 1 and on our digital campaign on June 18. Remarkably and right “out of the gate” we had 91 Discovery Visit registrations generated from our new Discovery Visit landing page, and since then, things only seem to be getting better.
This will accentuate our year-to-date performance:
The National Museum of the Mighty Eighth Air Force is hosting a Bombs Away Sporting Clays shoot Friday, August 31 at Forest City Gun Club. Registration for the event is from noon to 2:30 p.m. followed by a shoot briefing at 2:45 p.m. Shooting beings at 3 p.m., and the after party starts at 6 p.m.
All proceeds from the event will go to the Character Counts Program that hopes to reach more than 20,000 school-aged children in 2019.
Drop by The Landings Company’s Welcome Center during normal business hours (M-F from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.) to view Reflections by Daryl Nicholson.
We are approximately halfway through the 2018 Hurricane Season, and so far, things in the Atlantic have been quiet. However, anything could happen between now and November, so we should not become complacent.
