The Texas Campground Owners Association (TACO) is winning football fans with its highly successful promotion of Dallas/Fort Worth campgrounds and RV resorts with its new website atDFWEventsandCampgrounds.com.
Now TACO is giving sports fans and the Dallas/Fort Worth news media something else to think about: a pre-game interview with Green Bay Packers Hall of Famer Gilbert Brown, soon to be Packer Hall of Famer William Henderson and Bill Schroeder, according to a news release.
TACO secured the pre-Super Bowl interview opportunity with the help of the Wisconsin Association of Campground Owners (WACO), which promotes various charitable events involving former members of the Green Bay Packers.
Brown played with the team from 1993 to 1999 and again from 2001 to 2003, while Henderson was on the team from 1995 to 2006. Schroeder played on the team in 1994 and again from 1997 to 2001.
“We interviewed the players about the Super Bowl, their Texas ties as well as their experiences RVing and camping in Texas and across the country,” said Brian Schaeffer, TACO executive director and CEO.
Two weeks ago, TACO announced the creation of DFWEventsAndCampgrounds.com, which helps RV enthusiasts pinpoint campgrounds that are located near Dallas Cowboy Stadium and other popular special event venues.
In addition to Dallas Cowboy Stadium, the website includes calendar information about a wide range of special events and links to American Airlines Center, the State Fairgrounds in Dallas, The Ballpark in Arlington, Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Fort Worth Stockyards and Texas Motor Speedway.
TACO markets Texas campgrounds, RV parks and resorts and publishes and distributes the Texas RV Travel & Camping Guide each year.
