Here We Go!

Today has been a very busy day at the WEG office. In between radio interviews and planning for a huge celebration this Friday, our staff also met to walk through the DMAS, or detailed activities schedule, for our next two test events.

One Year to Go. Ticket Sales Launch. Kentucky Cup Driving and Kentucky Cup Endurance. There’s just so much going on!

Jamie Link (our CEO) and I are visiting TV stations througout the region this week, inviting everyone to downtown Lexington on Friday, September 25, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. as we celebrate “One Year to Go” with a festival at Lexington’s Courthouse Plaza. And for those of you who cannot join us in Kentucky, I hope you’ll celebrate with us through a live Web stream of the festivities on the city government Web site.

Our next two test events are also coming together very nicely. Kentucky Cup Driving will feature the largest gathering of Four-in-Hand drivers ever in America, and Kentucky Cup Endurance will include competitors from 22 countries. We have several international media outlets coming to Kentucky for these test events, and it’s a great opportunity to showcase everything that makes the Kentucky Horse Park a premier facility for top equestrian competition.

It is always fun to hear and see the excitement growing, and the immense support that so many people have for this event.

Don’t forget–we’re giving YOU a chance to ask us questions about the Games. What staff do you want to hear from? What athletes do you want to see featured? Let us know who you want to hear from and your questions–just reply to Louise’s blog from September 17th and we’ll get the answers.

See you in downtown Lexington–or on the Web–on September 25th.
