Some Special Guests

You’re never going to guess who stayed here last weekend.

“Were they rich and famous?” you ask.  (must be Brad Pitt and George Clooney)

“Were they powerful and influencial individuals?”  (Maybe the G20 stopped by on their way back from France)

“Were they a famous sports team?”  (Gotta be the Women’s Brazilian Soccer Team)

Maybe this will help.  A picture in the lobby at check in.

Recognize any of these people?

They are the Women in Leadership Board of the South Metro-Denver Chamber of Commerce and were the winners of this years Antlers Free Company Retreat.

Several companies and organizations submitted a simple form to qualify for accommodations for 12 people, meeting space with complimentary beverages and crumpets, gift baskets and a morning after breakfast.

I wasn’t on the committee that ultimately chose the winners, but from what I understand, it was a very difficult decision.  Magda King, our Sales Manager compared it to the “America’s Got Talent” show.  “Simon would have had a hard time eliminating some of the entries” she told me.

All the gals considered the weekend a total success and promised a return visit when it wouldn’t be “all work and no play”.

Ali told me "We've never had our annual meeting in such a comfortable atmosphere".


After 5 hours, it's time to decide where to have dinner.








Because of the success of this contest, we have decided to make it an annual event (dates to be determined).  Stay tuned.
