The Excitement Builds: T minus 3 Years

Posted in 2010 Games, Announcement, Kentucky Horse Park, Press Release at 8:48 pm by Thomas

We have reached the T minus 3 years mark so things are really starting to pick up now and the Excitement is building. I was lucky enough to get to attend Media Day for the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ Kentucky 2010 at the Kentucky Horse Park on September 13th. This was a great experience and all modes of media were represented from traditional print and television to those of us strictly in the online media formats. The weather couldn’t have been better and the Horse Park personnel did a wonderful job of showing off all the Horse Park had to offer while making the day go very effortlessly. I am sure all of us that were claiming this was a working event to our bosses and colleagues fill just a little guilty about just how much fun we had.

I will admit, this was the first time I had the opportunity to hear John Nicholson in person and I will have to say it was a treat in the sense that his enthusiasm for the Games is palatable. Of course I would of been disappointed if it hadn’t been as so much of the success of the Games rides on his shoulders. Of course it has always been my belief that those people who get involved in the Games will very quickly develop a pride and sense of well being that comes from being involved in something that you quickly realize is bigger then yourself and will make an ever lasting impact on the Commonwealth of Kentucky. So let the Excitement Build.

Lexington Legacy Project

Posted in 2010 Games, Government, Kentucky, Lexington, LFUCG at 6:12 am by Thomas

The Lexington Fayette Urban County Government put out a request for initiatives to be considered for the Lexington Legacy Project. We only had a couple of days after Mayor Newberry announced it to put together an idea but we did get it in by the deadline of September 11. We would of liked more time to better format it but sometimes its just better to get the ideas out there, even if our ideas are not used in whole we hope that they will help to formulate the final plan.

Our submission can be found here.
