The Weekender is very flexible and is ever evolving. Since the first draft of the business plan, The Weekender has grown by four pages and the circulation has almost doubled. The most significant addition to the publication was the 'Match the Dino' Contest. This contest takes the tourist around our town in a hunt to match up the correct dinosaur with the corresponding business. A tourist is supposed to take the tour around town, fill in the answers and drop the sheet off at the local grocery store for a chance to win a cash prize. This contest has proven very effective in getting visitors to tour the downtown area in an attempt to win the $100 prize. In 1999, there were over 400 families entered in the contest.
