Support for archery tournament appreciated

CORBIN — On the weekend of May 30 through June 1 the London-Laurel County Tourist Commission hosted the largest 3D Archery Tournament in the world. The Kentucky Pro/AM and National Scholastic 3D Archery Championship had 2,065 participants from 36 states plus England and Canada. We hosted shooters from as far away as Arizona, California, Colorado, Montana, Oregon and Washington. With inclusion of family members and spectators, we estimate that over 4,000 people attended the tournament. The event filled hotel rooms from Berea to Jellico. Many of our Laurel County restaurants have informed us that they had record breaking sales during the weekend.

A tourism event of this magnitude cannot be held without the support of the entire community. The London-Laurel County Tourist Commission would like to take this opportunity to express our heartfelt appreciation to Judge/Executive David Westerfield and the Laurel County Road Department for making the necessary improvements to the venue, to Mayor Troy Rudder and Steve Edge and his crew from the City of London for providing equipment, to Larry Vanhook and his staff at the London-Laurel County Rescue Squad for providing equipment and EMTs, to Assistant Fire Chief  Carl Hacker and the London Fire Department for providing equipment, to Jailer Jamie Mosley and the Laurel County Correctional Center Work Release Program for providing labor, to Rob Lowe and the Laurel County CSEPP Program for providing safety signage, to Chris Robinson and London Downtown Inc. for providing the block party, and to Deanna Herrmann and the London-Laurel County Chamber of Commerce for providing volunteers.

We would also like to express our appreciation to our local sponsors. The sponsor’s financial and in-kind contributions helped offset some of the costs of the tournament.

Rodney Hendrickson,

London-Laurel County Tourist Commission

  • Our representatives should co-sponor the PAST Act

    As a horse lover and Kentuckian, I support H.R. 1518/S. 1406, the PAST Act, which will reform the federal Horse Protection Act to end the abusive practice of soring walking horses for the sake of an exaggerated and grotesque gait.
