It’s back! Your turn to vote for your Winston-Salem favorites in the 7th Annual Smitty’s Notes “Best of Winston-Salem” contest has arrived. You did such a fabulous job in 2012 that we want to take your temperature, if you will, for 2013.

Smitty’s Notes has decided to join the ranks in taking a stab at naming some of the “bests” in our fair city. As a Winston-Salem-centric e-newsletter with more than 12,000 subscribers, we’re asking YOU to tell us your favorite places to eat, play and hang out. The poll’s results may lead you to check out some new things you haven’t tried, thanks to the recommendations from fellow Smittyheads.

So, here’s the deal: Just click on the link below (cut and paste in your browser, if necessary). Take your time. Fill out the survey. Comments supporting your choices are encouraged. The contest will run until midnight June 30, 2013. Results will be announced after July 4, 2013 in the Smitty’s Notes e-newsletter and on SmittysNotes.com which will also feature a special section on all the good things you recommended.

Submissions may be anonymous; however, if you wish to share your contact information, Smitty’s Notes will randomly select one person to receive a $50 Visa gift card. I’ve learned that you folks always need a little incentive!

I look forward to reading and sharing your choices. Thanks for your interest and support!

Warrior Dash is coming to North Carolina

warriordashThis event is not in the Triad, but I have had several people that have inquired about this event so here it is.  The event takes place in Historic Rural Hill, Not to be confused with Historic Rural Hall.

Warrior Dash is the ultimate event for thrill-seeking athletes.

This 5k race is held on the most demanding and unique terrain from around the world. Participants will take on intense obstacles, and celebrate their feat with music, beer, and muddy shorts!

Dash with a purpose. Dash for the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®.

No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries.

If you become a St. Jude Warrior, your fundraising will not only inspire hope in the children who need it most. You’ll earn awesome prizes along the way!
