River City Rivalry Lacrosse Tournament 2013

"Thank for getting us rooms last weekend. Our girls and teams had an absolute BLAST. The hotel and staff were GREAT; the facility (Jack Allen complex) was out of this world awesome. We can’t wait to come back. I’m planning on bringing all 4 of my girls’ teams this time. I’ve also talked to Pam and Melanie and told them I’d help to get the boys side of the tournament rolling. Once they see what a fantastic location this is the tournament will take off.

Thanks again for everything!"

Cross Country Runs 2013

"The CVB has made a huge impact on the cross country events conducted at the Oakville Indian Mounds Park and Educational Center located in Lawrence County Alabama. Our event has grown over the past years from 450 registered participants to 5,500 registered participants. The CVB has assisted us in the areas of hotel assistance, helped provide a coaches hospitality area, advertised the event, and counseled me as director on different aspects of hosting a large event.

The CVB has made an amazing difference in us due to their vision and unselfish support!"

"Choosing to host our events in Decatur, AL, has been rather easy. The outstanding service we receive from the CVB makes our AHSAA events feel special.

B.A.S.S. Federation Nation Fishing Tournament 2012

"Bringing an event to Decatur, AL, is basically a no-brainer. The fantastic fishery, great facilities and the CVB staff are just a few reasons why we like hosting events there. I think the personal touch that you don’t always get in other cities sets them apart from others. The city employees, hotels and restaurants stand out the most."

River City Rivalry Lacrosse Tournament 2013

"I have to say, this was one of the better tournaments we have had. The atmosphere was great and I really liked how it had a “festival” like atmosphere. At one point, I told David I believed we have us a great tournament here. I really think this tournament will grow FAST. I haven’t heard that many compliments in one tournament in a long time, maybe ever or since the first soccer tournaments we had."
