November 3rd was the Eagle Newspapers – Eagle Media Northwest meeting for sales teams and managers in Hood River, Oregon.
It was a beautiful fall day to be in the spectacular, Columbia River Gorge, with nearly 60 Eagle team members in attendance.
Each Eagle property was invited to present their “best of” ideas for innovative and creative sales and marketing campaigns, run at their location. A panel of judges deliberated thoughtfully over each entry, in each category, and there were many happy winners who received accolades from fellow Eagles as well as some cash prizes.
Congratulations to all the winners! To all properties – THANKS – for participating!
