RED RIVER BITS & PIECES

snowgunGet Ready!

The Red River Ski & Summer Area are getting ready for the first days of snowmaking.

“The air temperature needs to be 28ºF or lower with optimum temperature of 10ºF being ideal for snowmaking.”

Soon the sound of snowmaking machines will fill the night air!

Data & More Data

No, it is not a call box on a pole like the old fire alarm boxes on city streets that allowed citizens to report a blaze to the local fire department.

Flybox is a wifi service free to the public and it’s available in Red River. The goal is to make cell service available throughout the town. It also does some other nifty things, according to Heston Williams, co-founder of Flybox LLC.

In a report to the Town Council at their last meeting, it was revealed that in just the first three months of operation in Red River, it has generated more than a quarter of a million impressions. Each impression is someone seeing an advertisement on the wifi signup page.

More than 90% of these impressions were specifically for Town events.

Also, a recent Town event advertisement experienced a phenomenal 11% “clickthrough” rate on the Flybox platform. For comparison, the ad industry considers just 2% to be a very successful campaign.

We have had more than 43,000 successful wifi authentications. That is the number of times that users have successfully connected to Flybox wifi in Red River, and used our free network.
