Atomic Days on the Way

Atomic Days is organized and promoted by the Butte County Chamber of Commerce.  It is the  the biggest retail event of the year for many hospitality businesses.  It is a major time for class and family reunions. So much to do, so few people to do it, and help is appreciated, since the Chamber has no paid staff!

Atomic Days planning is underway, and we hope to have the poster and the website up next week....

Melinda Shodin of the Absolute Therapy has agreed to be the the Atomic Days chairperson this year, and has a number of the event contact people lined up...

Melinda has arranged for A&B productions to be at Atomic Days with a mechanical bull, jousting, a slide, jumphouse, and bungie run. Some of these sound competetive so maybe team competitions are a possiblity....Melinda is working on a ticket/bracelet pre-sale arrangement...

The Valley Insurance will again organize the Fun Run, and Rhonda Morris has agreed to organize the softball tournament.  Stan Blattner will head up the horseshoe tournament.  John Danz of Pickle's Place will organize the food vendors and Vicki Northrop will organize the non-food booths for the benefit of the Butte High Student Council.  The Saturday Market will keep its NEW regular hours of 4 pm to 8pm.  A volleyball tournament, parade, motorcycle show, Breakfast in the Park and ping pong ball drop are in the works.  We hope to have all the contact information available by next week.....

The Atomic Days Rodeo is planned for Friday and Saturday night, headed up by Brad Remer and Crystal Carpenter.  The Chamber will handle the in-arena advertising, and the committee will handle the show and the concession.  The Chamber is planning a riffle raffle to help backstop the rodeo in case of inclement weather.

If you can help with Atomic Days please call Melinda (mshodin@hotmail.com) or Chad (ccheyney@uidaho.edu).  We are also on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Atomic-Days-2011/208933162472521.

The next regular Chamber meeting is Tuesday June 14th. The featured business is Mia and Kevin Hays' screen printing business.  Meetings are at 8 AM at a local restaurant...June's location is pending...
