I received the following proposal yesterday and am wondering if there is any interest in doing something like this to promote San Carlos.  Note that there is a fee involved and contributions to cover that would be required.  If interested in supporting this effort, please reply to this post.  This has a short timeframe to respond so please consider if you can support this.

Good morning!
We are very impressed with your San Carlos Mexico website and are wondering if your fishing captains and other fine contacts who advertise with you would be interested in participating in the upcoming Official Best of Arizona 2017 show. We will work with you to come up with a special rate. Please read the production information below to see what we offer. Our executive producer has a home in Sierra Vista and he is currently in town and will be able to meet with you if you think this project is feasible. Thank you for taking time to go through this information!
We would like to feature San Carlos as the  Best Fishing Destination  in a two-minute segment on our upcoming television special the Official Best of Arizona-2017 and on We plan to air the half-hour television program on KPHO/CBS Phoenix and on KOLD/CBS Tucson. We would be honored to feature San Carlos. This will be our 9th Official Best of Arizona show. (Please be sure to check out our website.)
Confirmed Arizona 2017 Attractions:
Scottsdale Gun Club (Scottsdale)  Best Indoor Shooting Range
Castles N Coasters (Phoenix)  Best Family Fun & Thrill Park
Yuma (Yuma Visitor s Bureau)  Best Historic Main Street Community
Desert Belle (Mesa)  Best Scenic Cruise
Page (Lake Powell)  Best Vacation Destination
Mining Camp Restaurant & Trading Post (Apache Junction)  Family Restaurant
Laughlin (Laughlin, Nevada)  Best Nearby Attraction
Meteor Crater (Winslow)  Best Visitor Center
The  Official Best Of  solicits nominations for our website after we have searched online travel and resources to determine which nominees will be named  best of . No attraction can contact us for inclusion. Our selection process is rigorous with extensive research that requires positive reviews from a minimum of three independent sources. Our website has been receiving around 600,000 hits a month and traffic on our website surges after each TV airing of a state. We are currently enjoying our 10th season of awarding and showcasing the best attractions in the United States in a variety of categories. We soon will be featuring all 50 states.
The New York Times recently published an article entitled  Online Reviews of Hotels and Restaurants Flourish  about the rising importance of online sites that filter through thousands of restaurant, hotel and attraction reviews. These sites, such as ours, condense this information into organized categories. We, however, have one important distinction: we are the only site with video segments about each of the award-winning attractions selected as the best in each state. You have approval of this two-minute segment. The television program and website will feature no more than twelve Arizona attractions, each in a different best of category.
 There are six components to the  Official Best Of  promotion:
      A 30-minute television special, the Official Best of Arizona   2017, which we plan to air on KPHO/CBS Channel 5 Phoenix, Saturday April 29 at noon, and on KOLD/CBS Channel 9 Tucson, Saturday April 30 at noon.
     Three-year promotion of your two-minute video segment on our travel site
     Visitors to the site can easily access your featured video along with a direct link to your website. Your feature will also be placed on which has received over 2.86 million video views.
    A broadcast-quality DVD of your feature that you may copy and distribute as you like.
    A web version of your feature, with full usage rights, to use in any other form of advertising.
    Complete ownership of all the high definition B roll footage of your feature.
    The Official Best of logo that highlights your award of distinction and identifies you as the best in your category.
There is a sponsorship fee of $3,950 but we will give you a special rate on this. (This covers the production of your two-minute video segment, the television airings and the placement on our website for a full three-year period. There are never any additional charges during the three-year promotion. We rely on these sponsorship fees to finance our production because we do not have any commercials on our TV program or any outside advertising on our website.)
