Would you like to win a free trip to Holiday World (gas included)?
Our State Tourism office is running a contest.
It's a bit complicated in that the first step is to vote for your top three choices (out of 12 trips).
Here's where to go to do that: http://greatgetaway.visitindiana.com/.
Then...the top three vote-getters will be offered in the actual contest.
In the fine tradition of Indiana politics: Vote Early, Vote Often!

Hmm, I wonder if that extends to free Avgas to fly transatlantic...
...hmm, I wonder if there are actually enough suitable aerodromes en route to actually take something I'm qualified to fly transatlantic...

Rich, where are you from, just curious. Heck, if you can make it to New England or Nova Scotia acroos the pond, you've got a least a few good choices (and coaster to choose from.

French Lick is #1 so far. It actually might be a nice place to visit.

If you vote for Fort Wayne as #2 and Indianapolis Romance as #3, it'll help Holiday World pull even farther ahead because those two are at the bottom and the extra votes wont matter.

Ah...you've managed to bump us up to #1. Thanks, mates. :)
Paula (Can anyone tell if it's one-vote-per-email-address or if would be worth some PR person's valuable time to sit at her home computer on a Saturday night voting? Not that I had anyone in particular in mind...)

^Why do I believe that "enthusiasts" aren't the only ones responsible for HW being #1?

Ironically, French Lick is one of my favorite places to visit.
It's right up there with my neighboring tourist (and dinosaur) trap, Big Bone Lick.
With names like those, well, it's hard to go wrong.

^LOL! I forgot to get a photo of "Big Bone Lick" the last time I passed by. :)
I actually voted for "Indianapolis Family Fun" since I have never been to the Zoo yet. ;) HW and IB were right behind. :)
They all look like wonderful getaways! I am not fussy. :) Hey, gas included? I'm there!

It's the last day to vote ... :)

Okay ... the Top Three Getaways have been announced, and it's time to actually enter the contest (which includes $500 in gas plus a camcorder and mp3 player).

Well, I didn't win the contest but Indiana Beach sent me 4 complimentary tickets for participating. I thought that was pretty awesome except for the fact that they expire at the end of August so I probably won't be able to use them... :(
