Planning for the weekend has never been so easy for those who love outdoor sports and recreation. The Dixie Center here in St. George is hosting the St. George Outdoor Sports & Recreation Expo June 3rd and 4th! The TV Show host of “At Your Leisure” Chad Booth will be featured on Friday! On Saturday, they will have Brent Theobold and Eric Dodge for your entertainment.

The Expo will have a wide variety of toy-haulers, A.T.V.’s, dirt bikes, street bikes, boating products, wakeboards, watercraft, fishing boats, Harley Davidson’s, and much more! If you love being outdoors, and love getting dirty, this is the perfect place for you to start your next adventure; or continue an old one.

They will also be having a 3D Archery Competition and a Fun Shoot. They will have cash prizes! The kids will also be able to have a fun shoot of their own–for free!

If you don’t have any plans for this weekend, come on down to St. George! We would love to have you as our guest.

If you’ve been in Washington City lately, you might have thought it was snowing. But no worries; it’s just the cotton coming from the trees! The Washington County Cotton Days are celebrating the cotton we have here in Southern Utah, from May 7-14, 2011. They have events for all ages Friday and Saturday. Between golfing, fishing, playing games, watching movies, running a 5K and watching fireworks, there will be something for everyone to enjoy!

Come on down to Southern Utah and see what “Cotton Days” is all about, and find out why their slogan is “Honoring our Past; Building our Future”. You can leave your winter coat at home.

Ironman is coming to an end for yet another year. We have loved being able to provide the participants a place to stay during the race! They are all up with smiles on this Sunday morning, and we love seeing them!

We specifically had the Insulin Dependents group and also the Triabetes group staying at our hotel. Not only have these people been keeping up with their diabetes, but they have also had time to train for this Ironman Race! It has been a pleasure having them at our hotel.

We hope that next year we get to see them again, as well as all the other inspiring Ironman athletes!
