The Autumn Decoration Contest is Back!

Posted in Contests, Fall Foliage on October 8, 2012 by tremontoutdoorresort

Last year was our first year for our now annual Autumn Decoration Contest, and let me say, competition was fierce!  We have some really committed campers who love to decorate and are good at it.  We loved seeing what everyone came up with!

So, this year’s contest is starting today and the first judging will be Saturday, October 13th.  The contest will continue for the month of October with a winner being announced each week after the Saturday judging.  Please see the flyer below for more details.  The prizes are pretty sweet, so if you haven’t already, start planning your decorating scheme!

Voting for the grand prize will take place on our facebook page, so if you haven’t “liked” us yet, please be sure to do so in order to be able to vote!


Autumn Decoration Contest Winners Need Your Votes!

Posted in Contests with tags , on November 7, 2011 by tremontoutdoorresort

We just finished up our four weeks of our first annual Autumn Decoration Contest and let me tell you that competition was stiff!  Tremont campers really go all out and we so enjoyed the fruits of their labor.

The staff knew better than to try and judge these displays, so they enlisted the help of other campers each week, trying to choose people who were first time visitors to Tremont and didn’t know any of the other campers.  It was a good thing too, because I can personally attest that it was difficult from a non-partial viewpoint, but if you knew any of the families and their histories with Tremont, it was right next to impossible!  Plus, I heard rumors of some folks trying to bribe the judges with baked goods (or at least who they thought were the judges…but rest assured, this did not take place, it was all good -natured fun):)

So, how can you help one of these four families win a gift certificate for two nights stay at Tremont Outdoor Resort?  Easy, go to our Facebook page, “like” Tremont’s Facebook page if you haven’t already (it won’t let you “like” any of the photos if you don’t “like” the page), click on the photo album “Autumn Decoration Contest” and “like” your favorite decoration photo.  Recruit your friends and family to “like” your photos!  This is a popular vote contest, so the most “likes” will win.  Time to do a little campaigning:)  We will tally the “likes” on November 30th and announce our Grand Prize Winner, so be sure to rock the vote before the end of the month!

Thanks so much to everyone who participated.  We so enjoy having each and every one of you at Tremont and hope to see you again soon!

Here is a look at all of the winners…

1st Winner of Tremont’s Autumn Decoration Contest!

Posted in Contests, Fall Foliage with tags , on October 16, 2011 by tremontoutdoorresort

Well, we are finding out that we have some competitive campers here at Tremont…which is making this beautiful Fall weather even more enjoyable!

We are excited to announce the winner of the first week of our Autumn Decoration Contest.  The prize goes to the Guarino’s from Metairie, Louisiana! 

You might recognize the roadkill witch on the front of their RV as it was used in our promotional poster for the contest.  We promise, the picture used for the promotional poster was taken several years ago, we are just fortunate to have this family as regular guests at Tremont!

The contest is judged weekly by other guests at Tremont, not the staff.   The staff attempts to ask mostly first time guests since they are less likely to know any of the other campers and be the most impartial.

We hope you are enjoying this beautiful season wherever you are!  Tune in next week to get a peak at the creation of our second winner…

Autumn Decoration Contest

We thought we would spice things up a little this year by challenging our guests to show us their creativity through decorating their campsites in celebration of one of our favorite seasons…Fall.  Of course, the natural surroundings are spectacular this time of year, so  we thought it would be nice for the campsites to reflect the beauty that is all around them.

This contest will be taking place for the next four weeks.  You don’t have to stay the entire week to participate, but you do have to be with us on Saturday of the week you are there, because that is when the judging will take place.

Each weekly winner will be entered into the Grand Prize contest which will be decided by popular vote on our Facebook page.  So, if you are a weekly winner, be sure to get all of your friends, family, and neighbors to “like” Tremont’s Facebook page so they can vote for you to win the grand prize!

Here are the details of the contest:

Happy Decorating!

Wildflower Contest Part 2…

Posted in Contests, Wildflowers with tags , , on April 19, 2010 by tremontoutdoorresort

Ok, so the last challenge was a bit too easy it seems.  However, congratulations are certainly due to Lisa and Lou who both responded with the correct answers on the first day!  So, we decided to post something that might be more of a challenge.  We’ve gone world wide.

See if you can answer the following questions about the wildflowers pictured below:

1. Name

2. When they bloom

3.  Where they are typically found

4.  Your best guess as to where these particular photos were taken (this one just for fun).

Since they are not in our back yard, so to speak,  we can’t promise to take you to photograph these flowers if you answer the quiz correctly, we will hopefully be able to offer you the opportunity soon to join a class to scout them out.  So, this prize is going to be a framed print of the flowers themselves.

Good luck!  Can’t wait to read your responses!

Wildflower Contest…

Posted in Contests, Uncategorized, Wildflowers with tags , , , on April 15, 2010 by tremontoutdoorresort

This one is not your everyday, run-of-the-mill wildflower.  So, we thought it would be fun to see if any of you know any of the following facts about this bloom-

1.  What is it’s name?

2.  Where is it found?

3.  When does it bloom?

If anyone can answer these questions, Wilson will do his best to take the winner to photograph this flower.  He can’t promise this because of access to the location and the health of the individual (it is not for the faint of heart!).  We will wait until April 26th to post the answers.  If more than one person answers correctly (in the comment section, which we won’t publish until the time period is up), we will conduct a drawing.  So, give it your best shot!
