We Love to Sponsor a Local Charity Organization For a Great Cause

Miscellaneous

What fundraisers and charities you ask? They are now on their 4th Annual Bo’s Roast Chili Cookoff, which raises money for Camp Happy Days (“Kids Kickin’ Cancer”). Had their 3rd Annual Disc Golf Tourname...

It's The Super Bowl, Who Will You Root For?

Miscellaneous
//

The final NFL game of the season is coming up this Sunday and if the Denver Broncos or the Seattle Seahawks aren’t your primary team, then who are you going to root for?

Denver is in the AFC and Seattle is in the NFC so now you face the dilemma of picking a team that is in your real team's division or going with the other guys. On the other hand Denver has two rings and Seattle has none, so maybe you want to root for the team that doesn’t have a ring?
