Amador Council of Tourism Update

Hello, everyone-
I hope this note finds you well, and enjoying more visitors to your business, during our beautiful spring weather.

Much is happening with ACT. And I hope you are excited about the following:

First, Jackson Rancheria Casino Resort has named ACT the beneficiary of "A Divine Affair," Saturday, June 1st, 1 pm to 4 pm. Thank you to the wineries that have agreed to pour at this event. If you are interested in participating as a business, please contact Bailey Freund ( or Emily Tirapelle ( Tickets are $20 in advance online or $25 at the door. Please thank Jackson Rancheria for their generosity, when you see them.

We also are listing that weekend as an Amador event: Plan B: Barbera. Barbera Festival, scheduled for June 8th, sold out quickly (congrats to the organizers again). And because there is pent-up demand, ACT is encouraging folks to come up the weekend before: June 1st and 2nd. If you wish to plan a small event or offer a discount to anyone who mentions "Plan B: Barbera," please forward your ideas to us. We will list them on the website and in our upcoming e-newsletter to promote "A Divine Affair" as the highlight to the weekend. We have Italian Picnic and Parade that weekend as well. Please show your support for ACT by putting together a room/meal package that includes "A Divine Affair." We will all benefit. Thank you in advance for your support.

In ACT's 10th Anniversary year, we are assembling our fifth edition of our travel planner. It will release at State Fair and be in circulation for 18 months. Very few ad spots are left. If you want to participate and have not communicated with us, call the office this week at 267-9249.

State Fair volunteer shifts are available as well. State Fair runs July 12th through July 28th. We provide each shift with 2 fair passes and one parking pass, in thanks for your help at the Amador County exhibit booth. Please call if you are willing to share your time and enthusiasm for Amador County.

Last, our next evening meeting is Thursday, June 13th, 5:30 pm, at Renwood Winery. ACT will be rolling out its brand new website design. Thank you, Renwood, for agreeing to host the meeting. Please save the date for this exciting update. I know you will want to be the first on your block to know how your business will benefit from the new web design.

I thank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to call or email the office with questions or suggestions. We love to hear from you.

Thanks again for your support,

Maureen Funk
