Hang Gliding Survey

This year the Town of Rangely hosted its first international hang gliding competition.   The event hosted approximately 40 hang gliders from across the U.S., Canada and Europe.  We originally planned to host this competition each year but wanted to evaluate the economic impact of this event to our local economy through the use of the survey below.  Please access the survey through the link.   The survey will be up for a couple of months and once the statistics are compiled those summaries will be provided through a similar link on our homepage.   Please access the survey through the link above and take a few minutes to respond to the 16 questions.  Thank you for your help.
