Lynn H. has never visited ACE, but now when she takes her first vacation here in Southern West Virginia, her rafting will be free! She never would have thought a free trip for two down the whitewater of the New River Gorge would come her way — just from hitting a “Like” button on Facebook.Lynn, of Belleville, Ill., was checking out ACE on the Internet and was thinking about taking a visit to our resort next year. She didn’t think much of it when she became a fan of the ACE Adventure Resort page on Facebook. Little did Lynn realize, however, she was the 3,000th person to give ACE the digital thumbs-up. The ACE staff noticed the 3,000 milestone and thought we should give something to the person.
Then the ideas really got flowing and the team decided, well, let’s give something away at 5,000 fans, too. But then we thought, well, that doesn’t do much for the first 100 fans — who’ve been fans from the start — so we all came up with this:
ACE will award a zip line canopy trip for two to the 5,000th fan, and when we hit that mark we’ll randomly pick four more fans from the entire ACE family on Facebook to receive the same prize. So, all the fans have a chance to win when we reach the 5k finish line.
You also might want to know (when you’re telling your friends to fan ACE on Facebook, for example) we’re in the process of expanding the zip line canopy tour. We’re going to double its length, and it will feature side-by-side cables you and a friend can zip simultaneously!
Do you hang out on a different social network than Facebook? We’d like to know. You can connect with ACE on MySpace, Twitter and YouTube, but we know there are lots of other cool spaces. Let us know in the comments.
