Chamber of commerce seeks business participation for SU weekend

— With the success SU Men's Basketball is having, there is a real opportunity to capitalize on some of that hype and some of the out of town business that might be coming in for the Louisville/SU game on Saturday, March 3.

In Skaneateles, the chamber of commerce is calling it “Skaneateles Savors SU Basketball Weekend,” March 2 through 4. The Sherwood already has several rooms booked of fans coming up for the SU/Louisville game, Skaneateles Town Square is offering 10 percent off selected items, Skaneateles Bakery will have special SU sugar cookies, Paris Flea will offer a discount for anyone wearing blue, orange, red and/or white.

The Skaneateles Area Chamber of Commerce suggests area businesses participate. Some suggestions for participation:

—Put out an SU flag or banner if you have one.

—Put out signs that say: Welcome Louisville Cardinal Fans (colors are red and white).

—Lodging businesses, create a package for the Louisville fans.

—Businesses, create a special drink or dish, such as an Orange Crush the Cardinals Drink. A Cardinal Deal of the Day, a Louisville Slugger. Please let chamber director Sue Dove know what you are doing so she can publicize them. Contact her at sdove@skaneateles.com.

—Show your ticket for the SU/Louisville game and get a free drink, or 10 percent or something like that

If anyone has other ideas please share them with the Chamber of Commerce at sdove@skaneateles.com or call 685-0552.
