Many thanks to the 23 participating businesses, the 6 companies who donated generously to the Grand Prize Package, and to all visitors who toured on June 11-12. Almost 100 folks from Quadra Island visited, as well as over 65 from Campbell River and other areas. Staff attended from the Campbell River Visitors Center, the local Quadra Island Visitors Center, and Tourism Vancouver Island. One staff member commented “We had a fantastic time on Quadra last weekend. I thought it was great that it was self guided and casual so we could go at our own pace and visit properties at our leisure. Overall, I had a great time exploring the island.” Participating businesses noted that visitors felt positive, commenting on how nice Quadra is and how friendly everyone was they had visited so far A few locals commented it was fun to get a peek at what the tourists see. And finally, the lucky winner of the Grand Prize Package is…….Barbara S. of Campbell River…..she was very surprised, happy, and , quote, “overwhelmed” to hear what she had won.
