Eric Salin, Owner of Sport in Port Adventure Outfitters
Elgin County is pleased to announce that Eric Salin, owner of Sport in Port Adventure
Outfitters, is Elgin County's Ambassador of the Year for 2013.
Elgin County Ambassadors are people who volunteer their time to help promote business
throughout Elgin County and actively participate in the growth and development of
the County. The Ambassador of the Year is awarded based on points that are given
to ambassadors for a variety of items including attendance at quarterly meetings,
recruiting new members, promoting Elgin County at events, and informing the County's
Economic Development staff about new business in the area.
Salin opened Sport in Port Adventure Outfitters in 2013. This new and exciting retail
and rental business provides sales, activities and rentals of products and services
that support health and fitness in Elgin. Salin is also President of the Port Stanley
Village Association and an active member of the Port Stanley BIA. He has been a
regular attendee and active participant at ambassador meetings in 2013, recruited
new ambassadors to the program, helped to promote tourism in the area and partnered
with Savour Elgin to organize running events at member locations.
"Eric's energy, optimism and winning attitude have been an asset to our program,"
said Economic Development General Manager Alan Smith. "The County would like to
thank him for his continuing efforts to fuel tourism and economic development in
Port Stanley and the surrounding area."
The Elgin County Ambassador program is open to entrepreneurs, business owners and
community leaders. For more information on the program please call 519-631-1460
