In our class we are collaborating with the Pickens County Vision 2025 team on a project. Our groups focus is improving tourism and recreation opportunities in Pickens County. Our group is proposing to the Pickens County vision team to start an annual county triathlon/festival. The triathlon would offer an event for youth, beginners and immediate participants. For ones that are not competing we plan to promote the local businesses and cultural with a festival that includes music, food and games. Our group wants to scan the county and see what organizations would be interested in being involved in an event like this if it were to happen. The event is NOT planned its just a proposal right now. If your (organization, business, group) does these kind of events or would be interested in being part of this could you let us know. We are looking for organizations, groups and businesses that could donate (time, money, buy a banner, have a stand selling product, etc.), volunteer or actually be a part of the triathlon/festival.
