OKLAHOMA’S NEWEST TOWN, CARLTON LANDING, CELEBRATES THE SEASON ON DECEMBER 10

CARLTON LANDING, OKLA – The picturesque, lakeside community of Carlton Landing will spread holiday cheer on Saturday, December 10 with a double dose of family-friendly events. The day will kick off Carlton Landing Academy’s first-ever Jingle Bell Run, which is slated to become an annual tradition. The two-part event consists of a fun run at 8:30 a.m. with a 5K to follow at 9:00 a.m. Tulsa-based Tatur Racing will be handling the timing of the 5k and expects to draw runners from across the state. The afternoon features Carlton Landing’s Annual Christmas Home Tour, from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. Admission is free, but donations to Carlton Landing Academy will be gratefully accepted. Visitors may pick up tour maps at the Meeting House (20 Boulevard) and visit several of the town’s charming homes that will be exquisitely decorated to celebrate the season. All attendees will be entered to win a $300 Yeti Cooler. Holiday activities will be offered to make for a fun afternoon for all family members.

“The Christmas Home Tour has grown in popularity over the past couple of years, and we thought adding a Jingle Bell run would not only add to the festivities but also promote fitness during the holidays,” says Jen Humphreys, Town Founder of Carlton Landing and Race Organizer. Over the past weeks, Jen has led students from Carlton Landing Academy in training for the big race. The school is looking for high levels of student participation.

“This promises to be a wonderful way for families to kick off the holidays, and it offers a rare opportunity for the public to get an inside look at some of our private residences,” says Steve Winner, Carlton Landing’s Director of Sales. “Christmas is a special time in Carlton Landing. We look forward to seeing everyone come out, drink a hot cocoa and see some beautiful homes.”

Both the Jingle Bell Run and Christmas Home Tour are open to the public.

ABOUT CARLTON LANDING
Carlton Landing is Oklahoma’s newest town. Grant and Jen Humphreys, the lakeside community’s first residents, founded the community in 2011. The town occupies one of Lake Eufaula’s most picturesque areas, with sandy beaches, towering cliffs, beautiful woodlands and some of the lake’s finest water quality. Famed planner and architect Andreas Duany, known for designing the Rosemary Beach and Seaside communities on the Florida panhandle, crafted the Carlton Landing master plan with Humphreys in 2008. Inspired by the New Urbanism movement—which holds that life, work and play are all central to a community’s vitality—Carlton Landing is the first development of its kind to become a distinct municipality. The master plan includes schools, a waterfront chapel, Nature Center, community parks, trails, and a town center with restaurants and shops. Plans call for more than 3,000 homes, a private residence club and a generational development timeline. For more information, visit www.carltonlanding.com.

Oklahoma’s New Sustainable Town Hosts National Town Builders Association

CARLTON LANDING, OKLAHOMA HOSTED EXPERTS ON SUSTAINABLE TOWN DEVELOPMENT

National Town Builders Association Impressed by Oklahoma’s Newest Town

More than 60 developers, economists, municipal staff, architects and urban planners met in Carlton Landing, Oklahoma to discuss how best to create communities that are economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. Carlton Landing, a town that was created from scratch six years ago, is Oklahoma’s newest incorporated town. The National Town Builders Association Fall Roundtable began in Oklahoma City on October 20 and then traveled to the picturesque Lake Eufaula town for the final two days of meetings.

Carlton Landing, often lauded for its visionary master plan created by Andres Duany, offered the NTBA attendees a chance to see a new town in its formative stages. The setting served as an example of how careful planning can deliver real-world benefits to developers and residents alike.

This event was the first time since 2008 that Andres Duany has returned to Carlton Landing. Duany, world renowned for his design of communities such as Seaside, Florida and Rosemary Beach, was impressed with the NTBA, the projects he toured, and the people he met while in Oklahoma. “Many of us enjoy hearing that the members of the NTBA are the very best in the business. I happen to agree. It is not just one more mutual admiration society.” Duany stated. “This NTBA session in Oklahoma was special – not only the quality of the projects, but the people that the Humphreys introduced us to. They included whip-smart and courageous, young urban developers and the warm, smart people of Carlton Landing. Spending time with them was delightful.”

20161022_161025-sml

“With Carlton Landing having built just over 130 homes, this was an ideal time to welcome our NTBA colleagues who have played an integral role in shaping the built environment,” said Grant Humphreys, Town Founder of Carlton Landing. “It was great to discuss our multi-generational plan for Carlton Landing and to hear new ideas and feedback from the experts participating in the program. The theme of this year’s Fall Roundtable was “The Evolution of Place,” and we see today how Carlton Landing continues to evolve from its original compelling vision into a real community where people choose to live, work and play.”

NTBA President Ward Davis said, “Carlton Landing and Grant Humphreys hosted one of the finest National Town Builders roundtables to date. More importantly, Carlton Landing proves that a completely new town can still be created through thoughtful design, dedicated leadership, and the application of a whole lot of elbow grease. Carlton Landing is a breath of fresh air for people tired of conventional development patters driven by short-term considerations.”

The Carlton Landing portion of the program focused on ways to structure real estate sales, create inspiring design that helps residents enjoy richer lives, and explore construction techniques that emphasize high-quality craftsmanship.

“Carlton Landing’s success comes from the hard work and passion of the Humphreys family and their friends,” said Tom Low, an architect and planner who co-founded Civic by Design in Charlotte, South Carolina. “By combining new ideas with tried-and-tested old ideas, the Humphreys have made Carlton Landing a national model for walkable, green and healthy-living communities.”

Participants were treated to Carlton Landing’s signature hospitality, including a barbecue dinner prepared by Chef Donny Teel of Buffalo’s Barbecue, beer tasting with local breweries, and live bluegrass music.

Expanding Your Social Media Horizons

If your social media strategy is limited to throwing up occasional posts on your social channels, it’s time to rethink and expand your approach to keep up with the competition.

Since 2010, Redhead Marketing & PR has implemented and managed customized social media strategies for several different types of clients in various industries, including hospitality, retail, politics, and real estate. We have found that one aspect of a successful social media strategy is to develop partnerships with social media influencers. This means working with brands and media whose followers belong to your target audience. These partnerships coupled with consistent, engaging content and a social plan that integrates with the overall marketing strategy are crucial to a successful online presence that also complements SEO efforts.

We see countless businesses missing the mark on their social media and not implementing it as a consistent part of their communications efforts. This is typically due to lack of time and/or lack of social media expertise. As marketing becomes more specialized, so too does social media as just one component of the communications mix.

Below are some examples of social media partnerships we created for Southern California (Epic Pictures, a film production company) and Utah (glamping resort Conestoga Ranch) clients over the summer. The desirable end results included increasing the following for and reach of our clients’ social media accounts and improving engagement. All of this requires time and consistency that many businesses can’t devote in house staff to, which is, of course, where Redhead Marketing & PR comes to the rescue. Feel free to contact us to discuss how we can help you improve your social presence.

Paralympic Snowboarder to Hike Grand Canyon with Wounded Veterans

PARALYMPIC CHAMPION SNOWBOARDER AND MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER, NICOLE ROUNDY, ACCOMPANIES WOUNDED VETERANS IN A MONUMENTAL HIKE ACROSS THE GRAND CANYON

Copy of DSC_0228

SALT LAKE CITY – Nicole Roundy, a champion Paralympic snowboarder, is joining a group of wounded veterans in an impressive expedition to hike the Grand Canyon rim-to-rim. Known as Operation Canyon Rising, the hike will take place September 8-12, 2016. It is designed to encourage participants to lead a fulfilling, inspired life while overcoming obstacles and challenges they face. This expedition follows the success of the Kilimanjaro Warriors’ hike that was completed in February 2014.

During her prolific, young career as a motivational speaker, Roundy has had the opportunity to work with and inspire numerous veterans to help them heal and focus on creating promising futures.

While having her right leg amputated above the knee as a child because of bone cancer makes Nicole’s circumstances different from veterans, she finds they are able to relate to each other. Her desire to hike the Grand Canyon with them stems from her fascination by their heroic stories. She believes they can create a sense of hope for each other as they take on this challenge as a team. Operation Canyon Rising is intended to drive veterans to set goals and face challenges in a positive way while inspiring other veterans to move forward and create a new life.

“The majority of injured veterans I’ve worked with experience a sense of identity loss following their injury,” Nicole Roundy says. “They set out on a mission to change the world and came home in pieces physically and mentally. When joined as a group, these are strong, ambitious men and women who thrive when they are physically challenged. This is something I can relate to as an athlete. When I am unable to train and practice, my life lacks focus and organization. Physical fitness keeps me grounded and gives me the strength and courage to achieve my goals.”

The expedition begins at the Grand Canyon’s North rim, symbolic of how participants’ lives were before injury or illness. The hike continues down into the floor of the canyon to reflect the depths of their realizations of the permanent new realities and monumental recovery. Climbing out of the canyon on the South rim is analogous to rising to meet this life-long challenge, learning to overcome limitations and gaining hope.

About Nicole Roundy
In 1994, at just eight years old, Nicole Roundy was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma, a form of bone cancer. After aggressive chemotherapy, her right leg was amputated above the knee. She participated in various sports growing up and was introduced to three track skiing in 2002. Her love for the adrenaline associated with the sport motivated her to defy the “impossible” and learn to snowboard. Just four years later, she became the first above-knee amputee to compete in adaptive snowboarding, taking home a silver medal from the United States National Championships. She went on to compete in World Cup snowboard cross, slopestyle, slalom and halfpipe events and in 2014 placed 8th in the Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi. Nicole is a motivational speaker and an advocate for both The National Ability Center and The Challenged Athletes Foundation. Schools, universities and global corporations routinely engage Nicole to speak and inspire. The 30 year-old athlete encourages others to live an active, healthy lifestyle. Her summer activities include CrossFit, yoga, hiking, wakeboarding, and paddleboarding, all of which keep her fit for winter competitions.

As a result, we have also hired more teachers who embrace our fresh approach to education that incorporates experiential, nature-centric and peer-based learning.”

Humphreys notes that Carlton Landing Academy’s model is built on a solid foundation of reading, writing and math proficiency. However, the curriculum also relies on innovative nature-centric and project-based learning exercises, whereby Academy students reconnect with nature through an “Edible Schoolyard” and regular time in the Carlton Landing Nature Center, located just across the street.

ONE OF THE WORLD’S TOP ADAPTIVE SNOWBOARDERS, NICOLE ROUNDY, HONORED AT 2016 UTAH GOVERNOR’S STATE OF SPORTS AWARDS

SALT LAKE CITY – Forty-four of Utah’s most accomplished athletes and coaches for the 2015 calendar year were honored at last month’s 2016 Governor’s State of Sport Awards, hosted by the Utah Sports Commission and presented by Zions Bank. Accomplished adaptive snowboader and motivational speaker Nicole Roundy, a Utah native and Paralympic athlete, was named Adaptive Female of the Year. 127,000 votes from sports fans in all 50 states and 90 countries around the world determined a winner in nine voting categories.

In 2006, Roundy became the first above-knee amputee to compete in adaptive snowboarding. Her accomplishments spearheaded global demand for prosthetic knee technology, and she played a pivotal role in the addition of snowboarding to the Paralympic roster. Nicole represented the U.S. in the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games and is a 17-time World Cup Medalist. Nicole is currently ranked as one of the top adaptive snowboarders in the world.

“It is a tremendous honor to receive this award from the Utah governor’s office,” says Nicole Roundy. “I hope my dedication to being an athlete and motivational speaker will continue to inspire others to overcome their own obstacles in all aspects of their lives. I’m looking forward to more competition on the snow and sharing my story through speaking engagements for corporate groups as well as students and athletes.”

This summer, Nicole will be the recipient of a new, state-of-the-art prosthetic knee from her sponsor Össur. She is playing an integral role in the launch and can be seen in the Icelandic company’s promotional video demonstrating how the prosthetic enhances her active lifestyle. She also has several speaking engagements and will make an appearance at the 14th Annual Gatorade Athlete of the Year Ceremony on July 12th in Los Angeles, CA.

Starting Summer 2016 with Exciting New Clients

It’s looking to be a red hot summer for Redhead Marketing & PR after what has been a fantastic first half of 2016 for our small, but robust, full-service marketing and communications firm based in Park City, Utah.

This month, we began working with two Southern California clients in two very different industries – luxury real estate and animated film. Equity Residences offers high net worth individuals the opportunity to invest in a portfolio of high-end vacation homes in many exciting destinations. Investors can vacation in the exclusive homes, earn dividends in the form of rental revenue, and have the opportunity for capital appreciation when homes are sold in the future. What a creative concept that makes it possible to own and enjoy many vacation homes! We are creating content for social media and blogs, and making some improvements to their website.
