Wooing a TV Family To Jackson Hole

modern-family-poster

Jackson Hole may know sometime Friday whether or not it will be the site for the season opening episode of “Modern Family” next fall.  The episode features the family having a dude ranch-style vacation.  Members of the town and county Travel and Tourism Board met in a hastily-called meeting to determine if funds derived from the new lodging tax could be used to help defray some of the lodging costs to make the area more attractive to the production company.  Board Chairman Steve Price says the group authorized up to $50-thousand to assist in that area.  If selected, it is anticipated that certain landmarks of the valley would be featured in the show bringing highly valuable visibility to the area as a multi-generational tourist attraction.  “Modern Family” is broadcast on ABC Wednesday nights and is seen locally at 8:00 pm.  Price says nationally, the program reaches an estimated 15-million viewers and was voted the best show on TV by Critics Circle. The production itself is to be covered as a feature story by Entertainment Today.  Jackson Hole is competing with Steamboat Springs, Colorado for the production which would take place the week beginning August 1st.

    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
