Potential Participant,

The OUTD3511 Research Design class, in the School of Outdoor Recreation, Parks & Tourism, is conducting a study on 2016 ThunderCon participants and their satisfaction pertaining to the event. The study will determine what activities/events brought them to ThunderCon and what they enjoyed and disliked about the event in order to create a more successful future even and broaden ThunderCon’s exposure in the Thunder Bay and Northern Ontario area.
