As we closed out 2019 and were getting ready for 2020...our message was, "What an exciting time to be in the outdoor active space in the great state of Arkansas. The world is finding out what all we have to offer for individuals and families to play in the great outdoors. There is world-class mountain biking; road riding is second to none with well-maintained lightly traveled roads or multi-use trail systems, prime gravel, crystal clear lakes and state parks with an abundance of trails. No wonder we are called The Natural State!"
And we were ready to take on the world with new events, staff and equipment, BUT that came to a screeching halt and the world stood still! If we have come away with one lesson from these past several months, it is that together we can rise above anything thrown our way. We will be stronger tomorrow than we are today, and our brightest years are ahead of us.
We are very confident that 2021 is going to be a great year...Why you ask? As we mentioned earlier we have several new events and our team is continuing to expand. In 2020, we produced 7 in-person events and our organization has the resources, knowledge and expertise to continue being a leader in event production.
We have added new equipment and services to better serve you. And finally, we are continuing the goals and objectives of lowering the barriers to entry for both new and current participants. See Athlete Initiatives for a full review of those initiatives.
Also of note…is that we realized our need for having more strategic alliances in the community. Covid-19 amplified that need to be more public with our current charity partnerships and to consider adding new ones. We elevated and/or brought on four charity partners/sectors. Those partners are:
