 Minerama 2014 Looks to be right on track with planned Field Trips from Thursday to Saturday that sound great. :D

Details from Minerama very soon.

 Had a visit from some of the Commitee and Glen Innes tourism Boss today to talk through some ideas and the future of Minerama looks Great with some new faces and ideas.
 Im sure the committee would welcome more help so if you can assist in any small way even with ideas our help on one Day of the Show let them no Hear beers

 Aussie Sapphire are locked in again as a major sponsor along with the Glen Innes Severn Council, Glen Innes & District Services Club at the moment.
 Sponsorship packages are still available so if you are a business that wants to go ahead and also Love Glen innes contact the committee to get into the current advertising and promotion.

I understand that the new version of the website should be up and running by end of this week or so - they might be waiting to post some of the updated info on that version to save double handing.

Hi Leah,
Do you have any feedback on the tourism survey that was done at last year's Minerama? Results were to be made available by September, and although I contacted Glen Innes Tourism they have not replied.
Thanks,
Muddy

Minerama - Glen Innes
« Reply #11 on: December 16, 2013, 11:01:54 AM »
Minerama for 2014 is well advanced with the new program and brochure now available.

Website
Also looking to launch a new website this week with lots of new information and links etc. Looking to still build a few areas particularly History of Fossicking, Sapphiring, Mining etc in the Glen Innes Severn Region. If you happen to have any great stories, photos and even old movie clips we would appreciate being able to put them up.

Jewellery
You will also note that whilst we are planning 9 fossicking field trips in 2014 we have noted the many requests to include jewellery as a specfic item in 2014...so traders please include in your display as we will be advertising availability.

Trader Sites
Inside trader sites are pretty well all taken with a number of spaces for outside traders still available.

Saturday Night
We have also been discussing holding a Saturday Night function, event, activity and have number of ideas but would love to hear your thougths to make the weekend and your visit to Glen Innes area even more enjoyable.

Volunteers
If you have some spare tme and would like to held out the Committee we are always on the lookout for people to assist on things like field trips, set up, running a few errands, workshops, volunteers on the Services Club doors etc. If you can help please call Sal Molesworth 02 67302404 or email Sal on events@gisc.nsw.gov.au

Take care.....Peter Teschner Manager Tourism and Events Glen Innes

Minerama - Glen Innes

At the 2013 Minerama 130 of you completed a pretty intensive survey. We had to stop you for about 5 minutes and we thankyou for helping out. I am more than happy to share the outcomes and will be happy to post them in a precis format.

One of the greatest challenges we have is attracting a younger age group and getting the knowledge you older fossickers have, down to this age group. Maybe bring the grand kids with you, have more activities for that age group, put on a treasure hunt!!! Over to you, what suggestions do you have?

From the 2013 survey and with your suggestions and input I am looking in 2014/15  on developing a strategic business plan for reviving fossicking and the like in Glen Innes area. A 10 year Strategic Plan has been completed for the Celtic Festival and with Minerama having so much potential to grow I would like to hear of your ideas. Maybe some of them will be from left field but that is OK...I like left field.

My favourite video clip for thinking outside the square is an Apple ad: -
Apple Steve Jobs The Crazy Ones - NEVER BEFORE AIRED 1997 - (Original Post)

Look forward to some well thoughout ideas and lets make Minerama your first choice and destination.
