Traverse City, MI (Nov. 25, 2008)—As the biggest travel days approach, Traverse City based MyNorth.com, the online home of Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine announced today that it is offering more than $6,000 of free travel prizes in online contests over the next six months. And they plan to have contests for free travel all throughout 2009.
Contests are promoted in the upper right hand of MyNorth.com’s home page; click on the banner to reach the entry form. The first of several contests offers a free weekend in a suite at the Cherry Tree Condo Hotel, which is on Lake Michigan’s shoreline in Traverse City. Entrants may improve their chances of winning by re-entering each week.
MyNorth will have additional contests including lodging and ski lift tickets at Homestead Resort on the Leelanau Peninsula near Glen Arbor and Leland, weekend stays at Peninsula Bay in Traverse City and summer family getaways for a week at Cherry Tree Condo Hotel on Lake Michigan in Traverse City. And planning is in the works for additional contests throughout 2009.
Every week someone writes MyNorth.com about how much he or she loves the Traverse City area, or Petoskey, or Mackinac Island. “We see it on blogs, in forums and blog posts on MyNorth.com community, people use the Contact Us form, and in letters to Traverse, Northern Michigan’s Magazine,” says founder and editor in chief Deborah Wyatt Fellows. “It’s part of our principle mission to make it easy for folks to enjoy Up North; Giving away free lodging is an easy way to make that happen.”
