Greetings, fellow Summiteers!
Well, after surviving the first two shows of the SHARP sponsorship of the 2011 U.S Army Concert Tour (you’ll recall those were on back-to-back nights over the Memorial Day Weekend…and oh, what an adventure! Ever watched the sun rising…from the driver’s seat of a U-Haul…after being up for 26 hours straight?), we are now getting ready to hit the road for delightfully cool Fort Sill, Oklahoma!
This outdoor show features country superstar Miranda Lambert as the headliner and will be full of some amazing Army Patriotism, as the local Lawton / Ft. Sill community gathers to celebrate the 4th of July. (See: www.sillmwr.com)
Unfortunately, the intensely dry, hot conditions — and local brush fires — have caused the annual Fireworks Display, originally scheduled for the end of the concert, to be cancelled this year. Tomorrow, when we arrive, the temp will be a soothing 105…and, at concert time, the forecast is for a delightful 110.
But, rest assured that Summit-GSG will be there and leading the celebration! We have designed – and then manage on-site — the SHARP exhibits, promotional-products, prizes, scratch-&-win contest, pre-concert videos, voice-overs, and more. SHARP / I AM STRONG is the premier sponsor of the 2011 Tour, and Summit is the backbone of that effort! HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
