Red Oxx

Red Oxx

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Our Story THE HISTORY OF RED OXX MANUFACTURING – EST. 1986. HUMBLE ORIGINS – FROM CALF TO OXX. All journeys begin with a first step. For Red Oxx this step was taken by CEO Jim Markel’s veteran father, Jim Senior. After Jim Senior, Capt. Ret. completed his 20 years of military service, including time spent with both the Green Beret in the Army and as a Special Forces Officer in the Marine Corps Recon, he decided to retire here in Billings, Montana. A lifetime around parachutes included tours as a Jump Master, Parachute Rigger and S.F. Team Leader would contribute to the birth of the Oxx. Along the way, he maintained a passion for fitness and decided to create and sell some unique gym workout accessories. Captain Markel’s skills as a Rigger came in handy when creating lifting straps and weight belts. Crafting fitness products one at a time in his home’s basement, Jim Senior set in motion the vehicle that would one day grow into the Red Oxx the world recognizes today. “Back in 1986, our first products were made from military surplus webbing that had been slated for decommissioning.” says Jim Senior. This bootstrapping philosophy was thus genetically coded into the birth of the company. As each new lifting product was introduced and accepted by the local market, it became apparent that sales were fast outstripping the production capability of one man. Time to bring in the number one veteran son Jim Markel Junior, “We were both in the military for a small overlap, then Dad retired. I continued on active service in Marine Corps Recon. After I got out my Dad came down to Colorado and asked me to join him working with his fledgling fitness products company in Billings, Montana.” says Jim Jr.. Father and son then worked together to assemble a variety of sewing production machines. Eventually it was planned to move to a “real” factory location. No more cramped basement now, goodbye to spillover into the garage. The final straw was turning the kitchen range into a webbing cutter with a clever air “vent” in the form of a box fan in the kitchen window. At this point, they were garnering contracts from such notable names in the fitness industry as Weider, Parabody and local lifters Gold’s Gym, to name a few. As the company grew and diversified it was time to make some changes. Jim Senior moved on with other ideas and no longer works for Red Oxx, leaving the company in the capable hands of his son Jim Jr.. It was then that Navy veteran Perry Jones, also former Naval Parachute Rigger, joined the crew as company President. CEO Jim Jr. decided to expand to a line of rifle cases and shooting accessories for the local Montana sportsman market. The first factory and retail store combination was selected for its central location and low overhead. While locating the business in a blighted area was not the original plan, it turned out to be an excellent financial strategy over the long haul. Today, the Red Oxx manufacturing production facility is still located just down the street, now in its eighth location with plenty of room to expand. “Over the years, we’ve stayed connected to the local economy as our business expanded beyond the confines of Montana.” says Jim Jr. (hereby referred to simply as Jim).

Go RVing

Go RVing

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website About Go RVing In 1994, a forward-thinking group of RV industry thought leaders conceived the idea of creating an all-industry marketing campaign that united the three branches of the industry necessary for a positive consumer experience – the RV manufacturers, the RV dealers and the campgrounds. Together they formed a coalition with the mission of growing the RV camping industry by educating the American public about the joys of RVing. The coalition named the program Go RVing, which also serves as a consumer call-to-action. More than two decades later, with the support of the RV Industry Association and RV Dealers Association, Go RVing continues to be a leader of introducing Americans to the freedom of RV travel and continues to build a desire and passion of the adventures that await. The Campaign The Go RVing ads debuted in 1997. Starting out on television, radio, print and direct mail, the campaign has evolved as technology has emerged and now reaches audiences on all social media and cutting-edge, digital marketing platforms. The Go RVing website launched and has grown as American media consumption has changed. The addition of the Away video microsite in 2015 allows Go RVing to tell its story through the words and experiences of real RVers. While the channels to disperse the Go RVing messaging have and will continue to evolve, the mission of Go RVing has remained constant – to grow the RV market. Please click to view the latest television spots. In addition to its consumer-focused marketing efforts on behalf of the industry, Go RVing provides manufacturers, dealers, campground operators, state associations, show promoters, and their agencies with access to consumer leads, an Image and video Library, industry best practices, and other marketing tools in the Industry-Only section. How It’s Supported Go RVing is a partnership between the RV Industry Association and the RV Dealers Association and relies on both manufacturer members and dealer partners to provide support to grow the campaign and raise awareness of RVing. A portion of all income generated from the purchase of RV Industry Association seals goes to support the Go RVing campaign. Every RV produced by a member manufacturer must display the association’s seal. This seal represents a member manufacturer’s self-certification of compliance to uniform RV standards across the industry. The Go RVing Coalition, an advisory body with members representing the RV Industry Association, the RV Dealers Association and RV/camping associations, meets annually each June. The coalition is co-chaired by members representing both the RV Industry Association and RV Dealers Association.

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Our story begins back in 2000, when Laura and Scott Jordan - our future Pocket entrepreneurs - realized the world of fashion was light years behind the ever-changing world of technology. The modern world was giving us amazing new gadgets to make our lives better: cell phones, portable cameras, chargers, mp3 players (remember those?) and other portable electronic devices. But alas, when it came time to carry around our awesome new toys, we were stuck fumbling through bags and backpacks with the constant worry we might forget something, have our bags stolen, or just lose our keys in the abyss of a purse or briefcase. Laura was tired of carrying all of Scott’s gadgets in her bags and Scott’s traditional pockets couldn’t carry everything he needed...and a man purse was out of the question. Scott had a brilliant idea: he would create a modified fisherman’s vest but with extra pockets, enough to hold all of his essentials but still stylish enough to wear out around town. Those were the humble beginnings of SCOTTeVEST, a company that has evolved into an international business with a full line of intelligent clothing for men and women expertly designed by our Pocket Scientists to make life better. Who says you can’t have it all?

Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Welkam to the Solomon Islands A scattered archipelago of some 990-odd richly forested mountainous islands and low-lying coral atolls, the Solomon Islands has been attracting international tourism since 1568 when Spanish explorer Alvaro de Mendana first sailed into this tucked away corner of the South Pacific. Mendana’s legacy can still be found in the Solomon Islands today with many of the islands still bearing the Spanish names he gave them - Santa Isabel, San Cristóbal and perhaps the most famous of all, Guadalcanal, the name synonymous with World War II which takes its name from a small township in Andalucia in southern Spain. Bur for the most part the Solomon Islands and their quiet, reserved people – a mix of Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian cultures - were left pretty much alone after Mendana’s visit until 300 years later when Great Britain was given control of the entire territory. Things changed dramatically during World War II and the Solomon Islands became a household name when the forces of Imperial Japan invaded, the region becoming the scene for some of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific theatre and most famously the battle of Guadalcanal when thousands of Japanese and US servicemen lost their lives. 2017 is particularly significant as it marks the 75th anniversary of the Guadalcanal campaign. The British re-gained control in 1945 and in 1976, the Solomon Islands became self-governing before gaining full independence in 1978. Little has changed in the Solomon Islands since then and it’s thanks to this that the Solomon Islands have become such a breathtakingly fresh destination for those international travellers hardy enough to get off the beaten track and look for a new and very different experience. Today World War II buffs and veterans and their families – mostly American and Japanese – SCUBA divers and surfers looking for the ultimate uncrowded wave, make up the bulk of the 22,000 or so international travellers who visit every year. But the destination is fast attracting a brand new breed of travellers from around the world - family groups, bird watchers, honeymooners, sports fishermen, yachtsmen, culture-lovers and simply those looking to make their own tracks. The newly emerging, multi-faceted Solomon Islands can pretty much cater to every taste, desire and budget with its myriad choice of accommodation – from the ‘big gun’ hotels of the capital Honiara to boutique resort accommodation, eco-lodges and home-stays dotted across the entire archipelago. Best of all, and quite a surprise for many travellers, the Solomon Islands are very easy to reach – it takes less than three hours to reach the Solomon Islands’ capital Honiara from Brisbane and just over three hours from Sydney flying a sleek Solomon Airlines Airbus A320 complete with full onboard service.

Huntsville/Madison County Convention and Visitors Bureau

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Before and during the Civil War, Huntsville was a center for railroad and river-based trade and commerce. The Tennessee River remains a favorite local spot for summertime fun. Even now, we boast one of the nation’s oldest existing railroad depots where Civil War-era graffiti still marks the walls from the Confederate soldiers who were held captive there. Unlike many Southern communities during the Civil War, Huntsville's buildings were mostly spared from destruction – leaving the Rocket City with one of the largest concentrations of antebellum homes in the South. The heart of this historic area is called Twickenham. Look at the structures across town and you’ll see a beautiful collection of antebellum homes, renovated manufacturing mills, iconic Greek Revival-style buildings, a perfectly preserved down-home hardware store – the oldest in the state – and even a few spaceships! Where else can you find that combination? In the middle of the 20th century, our bustling town became a critical support line for the U.S. Army before helping to launch the Space Race with the establishment of NASA and the Marshall Space Flight Center. Space exploration is celebrated across all of Huntsville – we are known as “Rocket City USA” after all – but it’s especially celebrated at Alabama’s most popular attraction, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Expanding further into science, technology and other industries is Cummings Research Park, the second largest in the nation. Established in 1962, this impressive consortium of more than 300 companies adds a bustling population of engineers, doctors, students and creatives. The history of Huntsville has seen numerous influxes of new faces from all over the world, which makes our history and identity an ever-changing tapestry. From humble beginnings, the “Rocket City” has grown into a future-minded place to live, work, play... and, of course, to visit!

Even though the Czech Republic ranks among one of the smallest countries in Europe, its rich cultural heritage and natural beauty makes it one of the most visited European destinations. The country boasts 12 UNESCO World Heritage sites and world-renowned Spa towns. Apart from producing some of the best beers in the world, the Czech Republic also harvests great wine varietals in Moravia. In the Czech Republic you can enjoy everything Europe has to offer but without the Euro! 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the independent Czechoslovakia. Wait, Czechoslovakia doesn’t exist anymore, right? Here is a bit from the history: • With the collapse of the Habsburg monarchy at the end of World War I, the independent country of Czechoslovakia was formed. • The independence of Czechoslovakia was officially proclaimed in Prague on October 28, 1918. Czechoslovakia existed for 75 years, until 1993, when the country peacefully split into two independent countries: Czech Republic and Slovakia. In the context of this anniversary, we will tell stories of architecture and design (with focus on modernism and functionalism), stories of lifestyle (famous cafes, spas and the story of Czech beer), Czech brands (Czech glass, Czech cars and even Czech shoes and hats), and the formation of the Republic. The main storyline unfolds the period of prosperity of the country in the 1920s and 1930s, during the so-called “First Republic” era. The Czech Republic in a nutshell: • Ranked the 6th safest destination out of 163 countries in the world • 12 historical sites on the UNESCO Heritage List • 5 traditions in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List (Verbuňk Dance, Shrovetide, Falconry, Kings’ Ride, Czech Puppetry) • 6 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (nearly 6 % of total area) • Over 200 castles, chateaux and monuments • More than 40 protected historical towns • 33 spas • 104 golf courses • 4 national parks and 26 protected landscape areas (nearly 16 % of total area) • 12 mountain ranges higher than 3,000 feet • 25,000 miles of walking trails • 27,000 miles of cycling routes

American Prairie Reserve

American Prairie Reserve

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website American Prairie Reserve is creating the largest nature reserve in the continental United States. The Great Plains is a landscape that has been valued by humans for centuries, from the Native Americans who inhabited it to the artists, explorers and fur trappers who marveled at its wildlife bounty. Since the 19th century, a variety of efforts have been undertaken to ensure that America’s Great Plains remains intact for future generations. Homesteaders, Ranchers & Sportsmen Homesteaders, and now ranchers, have worked to make a living raising livestock while preserving wildlife species that could live in harmony with ranching operations. Numerous hunting groups have fought to conserve critical wildlife habitat and have pushed for legislation to ensure viable populations of game animals. And conservation and science-based organizations have worked to restore many native species of plants and animals. Science & Conservation Groups In 1999, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) published Ecoregional Planning in the Northern Great Plains Steppe, which, for the first time, pinpointed specific, critical areas of the Northern Great Plains that were the most viable for conserving the existing diversity of plants and animals. The region just north of the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge in northeastern Montana was identified as a top priority for grassland conservation, owing to the relatively pristine condition of the land and the diversity of wildlife species in the area. Shortly after TNC published its findings, World Wildlife Fund decided to initiate a conservation effort in the Montana Glaciated Plains, one of the key areas identified by TNC. They determined that an independent entity, capable of focusing all of its time and resources on the preservation of Montana's Northern Great Plains, would be the best vehicle through which to initiate a large-scale conservation effort. In June 2001, The Prairie Foundation was officially formed as an independent non-profit organization, later named American Prairie Foundation and now simply American Prairie Reserve. World Wildlife Fund's Northern Great Plains Program was an active and valued science contributor to American Prairie Reserve during the first decade of the Reserve. Specifically, WWF provided on-the-ground scientific support conducting inventories (plants, streams, birds and wildlife) and wildlife migration studies, monitoring and protecting prairie dogs, reintroducing bison, restoring streams and riparian areas. American Prairie Reserve Today, American Prairie Reserve is a freestanding Montana-based nonprofit that started to assemble land in 2004. Our main focus is to purchase and permanently hold title to private lands that glue together a vast mosaic of existing public lands so that the region is managed thoughtfully and collaboratively with state and federal agencies for wildlife conservation and public access. The idea of preserving a unique area of the American prairie, to be enjoyed forever and by all walks of life, has been worked on diligently, and in a variety of ways, for well over one hundred years. At American Prairie Reserve, we view our work as continuing the legacy of a long line of talented people and committed organizations as well as honoring a landscape that has helped shaped the vitality and character of our country.

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Think You Know About Glass? Think Again! “Wow, I had no idea.” It’s as if that phrase echoes throughout the galleries of The Corning Museum of Glass. Visitors old and young alike seem stunned by what they discover soon after walking through the door. Whatever preconceived notions they were entertaining pale in comparison to the ethereal beauty that’s found in the Contemporary Art + Design Wing, just steps from the Admissions Lobby. Think about your interactions with glass every day. You drink your juice out of it in the morning. You look through it when you peer out a window. You cook with it when you make a casserole. But did you also realize you carry it around with you every day? I’m not talking about the eye glasses on your face that help to magnify the world around you—I mean the glass in your pocket that allows you access to a world of information literally at your fingertips. From the screens of smartphones to the display glass on computer and TV screens, and even the fiber optic technology that enables it all, glass is the transparent material that connects our lives. Who knew, right? Are you already thinking about glass a little differently? That’s our goal at The Corning Museum of Glass. We tell the story of a single, transformative material. You may arrive at the Museum thinking you’ll see a Pyrex display or learn about the history of the lightbulb, but—if we do our job right—you’ll leave having just seen glass in an entirely new light. Here’s a few fun facts that might surprise you about The Corning Museum of Glass: The average visit is nearly five hours! Come find out why. Admission is valid for two consecutive days and kids 17 and under are free. CMoG has 50,000 objects in its collection, spanning 35 centuries. From floor-to-ceiling contemporary displays to meticulously crafted works from Mesopotamia, you’ll be amazed by the many forms glass can take—and by what skilled craftsmen can do with a material comprised mainly of hot sand. The Amphitheater Hot Shop is the world’s largest space in which to watch a glassblowing demo—and they happen all day, every day. You might get lucky during your visit and catch guest artists from across the world making amazingly complex creations. You can make your own glass! Yes, that’s right—at The Studio, you can work with a material hotter than volcanic lava. Choose from blown glass ornaments, pulled flowers, flameworked beads, fused glass picture frames and more. There’s nothing quite as special as a handmade souvenir. (Projects available for all ages for an additional fee.) And that’s just the beginning. During your visit to The Corning Museum of Glass, I dare you not to utter the phrase, “I had no idea!” And when you do, share what surprised you: #IHadNoIdea. Visit CMoG.org to plan your visit!

Red Oxx

Red Oxx

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Our Story THE HISTORY OF RED OXX MANUFACTURING – EST. 1986. HUMBLE ORIGINS – FROM CALF TO OXX. All journeys begin with a first step. For Red Oxx this step was taken by CEO Jim Markel’s veteran father, Jim Senior. After Jim Senior, Capt. Ret. completed his 20 years of military service, including time spent with both the Green Beret in the Army and as a Special Forces Officer in the Marine Corps Recon, he decided to retire here in Billings, Montana. A lifetime around parachutes included tours as a Jump Master, Parachute Rigger and S.F. Team Leader would contribute to the birth of the Oxx. Along the way, he maintained a passion for fitness and decided to create and sell some unique gym workout accessories. Captain Markel’s skills as a Rigger came in handy when creating lifting straps and weight belts. Crafting fitness products one at a time in his home’s basement, Jim Senior set in motion the vehicle that would one day grow into the Red Oxx the world recognizes today. “Back in 1986, our first products were made from military surplus webbing that had been slated for decommissioning.” says Jim Senior. This bootstrapping philosophy was thus genetically coded into the birth of the company. As each new lifting product was introduced and accepted by the local market, it became apparent that sales were fast outstripping the production capability of one man. Time to bring in the number one veteran son Jim Markel Junior, “We were both in the military for a small overlap, then Dad retired. I continued on active service in Marine Corps Recon. After I got out my Dad came down to Colorado and asked me to join him working with his fledgling fitness products company in Billings, Montana.” says Jim Jr.. Father and son then worked together to assemble a variety of sewing production machines. Eventually it was planned to move to a “real” factory location. No more cramped basement now, goodbye to spillover into the garage. The final straw was turning the kitchen range into a webbing cutter with a clever air “vent” in the form of a box fan in the kitchen window. At this point, they were garnering contracts from such notable names in the fitness industry as Weider, Parabody and local lifters Gold’s Gym, to name a few. As the company grew and diversified it was time to make some changes. Jim Senior moved on with other ideas and no longer works for Red Oxx, leaving the company in the capable hands of his son Jim Jr.. It was then that Navy veteran Perry Jones, also former Naval Parachute Rigger, joined the crew as company President. CEO Jim Jr. decided to expand to a line of rifle cases and shooting accessories for the local Montana sportsman market. The first factory and retail store combination was selected for its central location and low overhead. While locating the business in a blighted area was not the original plan, it turned out to be an excellent financial strategy over the long haul. Today, the Red Oxx manufacturing production facility is still located just down the street, now in its eighth location with plenty of room to expand. “Over the years, we’ve stayed connected to the local economy as our business expanded beyond the confines of Montana.” says Jim Jr. (hereby referred to simply as Jim).

Solomon Islands

Solomon Islands

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Welkam to the Solomon Islands A scattered archipelago of some 990-odd richly forested mountainous islands and low-lying coral atolls, the Solomon Islands has been attracting international tourism since 1568 when Spanish explorer Alvaro de Mendana first sailed into this tucked away corner of the South Pacific. Mendana’s legacy can still be found in the Solomon Islands today with many of the islands still bearing the Spanish names he gave them - Santa Isabel, San Cristóbal and perhaps the most famous of all, Guadalcanal, the name synonymous with World War II which takes its name from a small township in Andalucia in southern Spain. Bur for the most part the Solomon Islands and their quiet, reserved people – a mix of Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian cultures - were left pretty much alone after Mendana’s visit until 300 years later when Great Britain was given control of the entire territory. Things changed dramatically during World War II and the Solomon Islands became a household name when the forces of Imperial Japan invaded, the region becoming the scene for some of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific theatre and most famously the battle of Guadalcanal when thousands of Japanese and US servicemen lost their lives. 2017 is particularly significant as it marks the 75th anniversary of the Guadalcanal campaign. The British re-gained control in 1945 and in 1976, the Solomon Islands became self-governing before gaining full independence in 1978. Little has changed in the Solomon Islands since then and it’s thanks to this that the Solomon Islands have become such a breathtakingly fresh destination for those international travellers hardy enough to get off the beaten track and look for a new and very different experience. Today World War II buffs and veterans and their families – mostly American and Japanese – SCUBA divers and surfers looking for the ultimate uncrowded wave, make up the bulk of the 22,000 or so international travellers who visit every year. But the destination is fast attracting a brand new breed of travellers from around the world - family groups, bird watchers, honeymooners, sports fishermen, yachtsmen, culture-lovers and simply those looking to make their own tracks. The newly emerging, multi-faceted Solomon Islands can pretty much cater to every taste, desire and budget with its myriad choice of accommodation – from the ‘big gun’ hotels of the capital Honiara to boutique resort accommodation, eco-lodges and home-stays dotted across the entire archipelago. Best of all, and quite a surprise for many travellers, the Solomon Islands are very easy to reach – it takes less than three hours to reach the Solomon Islands’ capital Honiara from Brisbane and just over three hours from Sydney flying a sleek Solomon Airlines Airbus A320 complete with full onboard service.

Unlike many Southern communities during the Civil War, Huntsville's buildings were mostly spared from destruction – leaving the Rocket City with one of the largest concentrations of antebellum homes in the South. The heart of this historic area is called Twickenham. Look at the structures across town and you’ll see a beautiful collection of antebellum homes, renovated manufacturing mills, iconic Greek Revival-style buildings, a perfectly preserved down-home hardware store – the oldest in the state – and even a few spaceships! Where else can you find that combination? In the middle of the 20th century, our bustling town became a critical support line for the U.S. Army before helping to launch the Space Race with the establishment of NASA and the Marshall Space Flight Center. Space exploration is celebrated across all of Huntsville – we are known as “Rocket City USA” after all – but it’s especially celebrated at Alabama’s most popular attraction, the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. Expanding further into science, technology and other industries is Cummings Research Park, the second largest in the nation. Established in 1962, this impressive consortium of more than 300 companies adds a bustling population of engineers, doctors, students and creatives. The history of Huntsville has seen numerous influxes of new faces from all over the world, which makes our history and identity an ever-changing tapestry. From humble beginnings, the “Rocket City” has grown into a future-minded place to live, work, play... and, of course, to visit!

Even though the Czech Republic ranks among one of the smallest countries in Europe, its rich cultural heritage and natural beauty makes it one of the most visited European destinations. The country boasts 12 UNESCO World Heritage sites and world-renowned Spa towns. Apart from producing some of the best beers in the world, the Czech Republic also harvests great wine varietals in Moravia. In the Czech Republic you can enjoy everything Europe has to offer but without the Euro! 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the independent Czechoslovakia. Wait, Czechoslovakia doesn’t exist anymore, right? Here is a bit from the history: • With the collapse of the Habsburg monarchy at the end of World War I, the independent country of Czechoslovakia was formed. • The independence of Czechoslovakia was officially proclaimed in Prague on October 28, 1918. Czechoslovakia existed for 75 years, until 1993, when the country peacefully split into two independent countries: Czech Republic and Slovakia. In the context of this anniversary, we will tell stories of architecture and design (with focus on modernism and functionalism), stories of lifestyle (famous cafes, spas and the story of Czech beer), Czech brands (Czech glass, Czech cars and even Czech shoes and hats), and the formation of the Republic. The main storyline unfolds the period of prosperity of the country in the 1920s and 1930s, during the so-called “First Republic” era. The Czech Republic in a nutshell: • Ranked the 6th safest destination out of 163 countries in the world • 12 historical sites on the UNESCO Heritage List • 5 traditions in the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage List (Verbuňk Dance, Shrovetide, Falconry, Kings’ Ride, Czech Puppetry) • 6 UNESCO Biosphere Reserves (nearly 6 % of total area) • Over 200 castles, chateaux and monuments • More than 40 protected historical towns • 33 spas • 104 golf courses • 4 national parks and 26 protected landscape areas (nearly 16 % of total area) • 12 mountain ranges higher than 3,000 feet • 25,000 miles of walking trails • 27,000 miles of cycling routes

Go RVing

Go RVing

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website About Go RVing In 1994, a forward-thinking group of RV industry thought leaders conceived the idea of creating an all-industry marketing campaign that united the three branches of the industry necessary for a positive consumer experience – the RV manufacturers, the RV dealers and the campgrounds. Together they formed a coalition with the mission of growing the RV camping industry by educating the American public about the joys of RVing. The coalition named the program Go RVing, which also serves as a consumer call-to-action. More than two decades later, with the support of the RV Industry Association and RV Dealers Association, Go RVing continues to be a leader of introducing Americans to the freedom of RV travel and continues to build a desire and passion of the adventures that await. The Campaign The Go RVing ads debuted in 1997. Starting out on television, radio, print and direct mail, the campaign has evolved as technology has emerged and now reaches audiences on all social media and cutting-edge, digital marketing platforms. The Go RVing website launched and has grown as American media consumption has changed. The addition of the Away video microsite in 2015 allows Go RVing to tell its story through the words and experiences of real RVers. While the channels to disperse the Go RVing messaging have and will continue to evolve, the mission of Go RVing has remained constant – to grow the RV market. Please click to view the latest television spots. In addition to its consumer-focused marketing efforts on behalf of the industry, Go RVing provides manufacturers, dealers, campground operators, state associations, show promoters, and their agencies with access to consumer leads, an Image and video Library, industry best practices, and other marketing tools in the Industry-Only section. How It’s Supported Go RVing is a partnership between the RV Industry Association and the RV Dealers Association and relies on both manufacturer members and dealer partners to provide support to grow the campaign and raise awareness of RVing. A portion of all income generated from the purchase of RV Industry Association seals goes to support the Go RVing campaign. Every RV produced by a member manufacturer must display the association’s seal. This seal represents a member manufacturer’s self-certification of compliance to uniform RV standards across the industry. The Go RVing Coalition, an advisory body with members representing the RV Industry Association, the RV Dealers Association and RV/camping associations, meets annually each June. The coalition is co-chaired by members representing both the RV Industry Association and RV Dealers Association.

American Prairie Reserve

American Prairie Reserve

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website American Prairie Reserve is creating the largest nature reserve in the continental United States. The Great Plains is a landscape that has been valued by humans for centuries, from the Native Americans who inhabited it to the artists, explorers and fur trappers who marveled at its wildlife bounty. Since the 19th century, a variety of efforts have been undertaken to ensure that America’s Great Plains remains intact for future generations. Homesteaders, Ranchers & Sportsmen Homesteaders, and now ranchers, have worked to make a living raising livestock while preserving wildlife species that could live in harmony with ranching operations. Numerous hunting groups have fought to conserve critical wildlife habitat and have pushed for legislation to ensure viable populations of game animals. And conservation and science-based organizations have worked to restore many native species of plants and animals. Science & Conservation Groups In 1999, The Nature Conservancy (TNC) published Ecoregional Planning in the Northern Great Plains Steppe, which, for the first time, pinpointed specific, critical areas of the Northern Great Plains that were the most viable for conserving the existing diversity of plants and animals. The region just north of the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge in northeastern Montana was identified as a top priority for grassland conservation, owing to the relatively pristine condition of the land and the diversity of wildlife species in the area. Shortly after TNC published its findings, World Wildlife Fund decided to initiate a conservation effort in the Montana Glaciated Plains, one of the key areas identified by TNC. They determined that an independent entity, capable of focusing all of its time and resources on the preservation of Montana's Northern Great Plains, would be the best vehicle through which to initiate a large-scale conservation effort. In June 2001, The Prairie Foundation was officially formed as an independent non-profit organization, later named American Prairie Foundation and now simply American Prairie Reserve. World Wildlife Fund's Northern Great Plains Program was an active and valued science contributor to American Prairie Reserve during the first decade of the Reserve. Specifically, WWF provided on-the-ground scientific support conducting inventories (plants, streams, birds and wildlife) and wildlife migration studies, monitoring and protecting prairie dogs, reintroducing bison, restoring streams and riparian areas. American Prairie Reserve Today, American Prairie Reserve is a freestanding Montana-based nonprofit that started to assemble land in 2004. Our main focus is to purchase and permanently hold title to private lands that glue together a vast mosaic of existing public lands so that the region is managed thoughtfully and collaboratively with state and federal agencies for wildlife conservation and public access. The idea of preserving a unique area of the American prairie, to be enjoyed forever and by all walks of life, has been worked on diligently, and in a variety of ways, for well over one hundred years. At American Prairie Reserve, we view our work as continuing the legacy of a long line of talented people and committed organizations as well as honoring a landscape that has helped shaped the vitality and character of our country.

Think about your interactions with glass every day. You drink your juice out of it in the morning. You look through it when you peer out a window. You cook with it when you make a casserole. But did you also realize you carry it around with you every day? I’m not talking about the eye glasses on your face that help to magnify the world around you—I mean the glass in your pocket that allows you access to a world of information literally at your fingertips. From the screens of smartphones to the display glass on computer and TV screens, and even the fiber optic technology that enables it all, glass is the transparent material that connects our lives. Who knew, right? Are you already thinking about glass a little differently? That’s our goal at The Corning Museum of Glass. We tell the story of a single, transformative material. You may arrive at the Museum thinking you’ll see a Pyrex display or learn about the history of the lightbulb, but—if we do our job right—you’ll leave having just seen glass in an entirely new light. Here’s a few fun facts that might surprise you about The Corning Museum of Glass: The average visit is nearly five hours! Come find out why. Admission is valid for two consecutive days and kids 17 and under are free. CMoG has 50,000 objects in its collection, spanning 35 centuries. From floor-to-ceiling contemporary displays to meticulously crafted works from Mesopotamia, you’ll be amazed by the many forms glass can take—and by what skilled craftsmen can do with a material comprised mainly of hot sand. The Amphitheater Hot Shop is the world’s largest space in which to watch a glassblowing demo—and they happen all day, every day. You might get lucky during your visit and catch guest artists from across the world making amazingly complex creations. You can make your own glass! Yes, that’s right—at The Studio, you can work with a material hotter than volcanic lava. Choose from blown glass ornaments, pulled flowers, flameworked beads, fused glass picture frames and more. There’s nothing quite as special as a handmade souvenir. (Projects available for all ages for an additional fee.) And that’s just the beginning.

Town Pump

Town Pump

View Sponsor Profile Visit Sponsor Website Our Story In 1953, Tom and Mary Kenneally started Town Pump as a small full service gas station in Butte Montana. Town Pump operates full service unbranded gas stations located in separate markets and in separate towns. The separate market strategy allowed for greater protection from price fluctuations and price wars. Founder, Tom Kenneally Sr. would hand his customers his wristwatch to time his oil change guaranteed to take less than 3 minutes or the oil change was free! In 1966, Town Pump was the first gas station in Montana to offer Self-Service gasoline and the first to install bill acceptors directly into the gas pumps. With the addition of Self-Service, Town Pump was able to sell a higher volume at lower prices in order to cover their margins. Today approximately 97% of all gasoline sales in Montana are made via the Self-Service model. The Kenneally’s saw self-service as an opportunity to be more competitive by offering something new. At the time this was a very risky undertaking as most people said it was ludicrous. Many were convinced that there would be explosions due to untrained individual handling this combustible product. In the 1970’s, Town Pump faced its greatest challenge – the Oil Crisis of 1973. Oil prices jumped from $3 per barrel to $12. Town Pump had to quickly and effectively manage the massive gas shortage that had impacted the entire nation. As unbranded independents, Town Pump Inc. struggled to cope with the restrictions and impositions all the major oil companies levied. The supply shortage made it a challenge to buy enough product to fill all their required tanks. This meant service hours had to be severely cut in order to make the gas last longer. Operations were hampered and growth was out of the question. Town Pump’s survival was in jeopardy. The Turning Point The Kenneally family traveled to Washington D.C. to appear for a hearing before the Department of Energy. They requested an allowance to import product from outside the United States when available. It was this successful petition that helped Town Pump survive this tumultuous time by importing oil from Canada using a USA Government assigned Import Quota. The 1980’s began a decade of petroleum products that flooded the market. Town Pump quickly took this market opportunity and expanded its convenience store operations with reinvesting in its stores, adding new product lines and hiring more employees. Town Pump began reinvesting in current locations by building new and larger convenience stores. These stores required more employees and together we began to learn a new business. Some weaker locations did not warrant further investment so we needed to close, sell or lease them to other types of businesses that were considered more viable. In these nine years we stopped selling gasoline at 14 of our pre-1980 locations. In the 1990’s, Town Pump Inc. diversified their business holdings to include truck stops, car washes, laundromats, hotels, quick serve delis, and gaming operations. The “Whole Package” concept is part of Town Pump’s long term strategy of moving forward and never being complacent in the marketplace. By expanding goods and services across Montana – 24 hours a day and responding to their customer’s needs, Town Pump has established itself as one of Montana’s respected Industry Leaders. Through continuous reinvestment we are able to meet our customer’s demands and complement our current business structure. By paying attention to details we have more fuel pumps with less waiting, better lighting for security and comfort, larger parking areas and driving lanes for better traffic flow and extensive inventories to offer more selection for our customer. Today, Town Pump owns and operates over 200 gas station/convenience store, casino, hotel and car wash properties throughout Montana and Idaho. Town Pump will continually strive to be Montana’s Best by: reinvesting all net income back into Montana communities providing the highest quality products and services to meet customer’s needs investing in the best technology available to protect the environment helping others through the Town Pump Charitable Foundation. The world is changing and so is our Town Pump business. It is an absolute requirement from a cost standpoint that we discipline ourselves everyday so we can compete and deliver our best to our customers. This requires from each of us a relentless pursuit to be productive and efficient in everything we do. For well-run companies like our Town Pump, there is never an end to that pursuit. ~ Tom Kenneally, Founder
