Istria achieved a historically record June

first_imgThe Tourist Board of the Istrian County is especially proud to announce that Istria will realize more than 4 million overnight stays for the first time in June. Last year, Istria realized 3 million overnight stays in June, so that this year’s result in June will be almost 37 percent stronger, which in concrete figures means more than a million overnight stays for the month of June alone.With such figures before and after the season they look much better and after many years of systematic work, excellent cooperation between the private and public sector, joint work of all stakeholders in preparing the tourist season and constantly improving the living conditions of our guests, we obviously return the effort. – point out from the Tourist Board of the Istrian CountyIstria thus proves that it is a well-organized and organized tourist destination, and a large role in the whole story is played by the private sector which has designed a very high quality offer with the affected price and invested significantly in raising the quality of accommodation and organizing large TOP events such as: Swatch Beach Volleyball Major Series, Open Air Festival, Beach Polo in Rovinj, Sea Star Festival in Umag, Rise Up Festival in Porec and many others that in the pre- and post-season become a motive for the arrival of many guests and generate quality content in tourist destinations.last_img read more

Further amendments made to 2019 Late Model rules

first_imgVINTON, Iowa – On the heals of the PRI trade show last week, several clarifications and rule amendments have been made to the IMCA Late Model division for 2019.As announced in November, bump stops will be legal for use in the division; however, “spring” bump stops will not be permitted. All bump stops must be of rubber or a similar material composition.Additionally, spring rubbers will be allowed as well for the 2019 racing season.“Although confusing on the surface, these two issues are separate and will be treated as such during inspection,” stated IMCA President Brett Root.As previously announced, a 604 Chevrolet Performance engine option will be new in 2019.Drivers utilizing a spec engine must run an unaltered one inch carburetor spacer. The approved spacer is the Governor spacer no. 100 125000 with four .95-inch restrictors, no. 100-125095.“The restrictor plate on the spec engines will be a work in progress throughout 2019, We’re reviewing dyno numbers as this release is being produced,” said Root. “We’ll do our best to monitor the on-track performance of the two engines options and make the best decisions possible as the season progresses. Joe Hayes and Randy Anderson will be actively involved in those decisions”Hayes was recently named the Late Model Division Director while Anderson remains the Late Model Division Competition Director.“I’m confident in both Joe and Randy and I think the IMCA Late Model division has taken some very good steps in the right direction this off-season,” stated Root.As announced last month, door plates are now mandatory for the division. The plates can be securely welded or bolted to the outside of driver side door bars and must maintain a minimum size of 16” by 26.”Rules for the IMCA Speedway Motors Weekly Racing season will be the same as those in place for the Deery Brothers Summer Series.2019 rules are posted on the IMCA website and will be published in the December issue of Inside IMCA.

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAtlanta — Hope Shores Alliance threw a celebration in honor of 40 years of service to northeast Michigan by opening the Montmorency County Outreach & Services Center.The festivities coincided with domestic violence awareness month, so many wore purple or stuck purple ribbon stickers on their shirts. This marks the fourth Hope Shores Alliance location in Northeast Michigan and the first in Montmorency County.“To have people in your community near your house that you can safely go to to get help is a really big deal,” said Hope Shores Alliance Board President Esther Hines-Ableidinger. “They don’t need to travel so far, and you still feel welcome in your community so to have those services here means a lot to many people to have more access.”The nonprofit was founded in 1977 in Alpena as Shelter Inc. Hope Shores later expanded to serve Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Montmorency, and Presque Isle Counties. In 2016, Shelter Inc. went through a rebranding process to be called Hope Shores Alliance.The organization credits the Sexual Assault Demonstration Initiative (SADI) for helping enhance sexual assault outreach and services. Hope Shores was one of six agencies in the nation to receive funding and guidance from this SADI back in 2011. In the 2017/2018 year, Hope Shores Alliance provided service for 292 domestic assault cases and helped 34 adults and 72 children transition into new homes.“To see the successes from the work and people’s lives get better and relationships get repaired,” said Hope Shores Alliance Board Member Mike Kelly on what this means to the organization. “I think those are the biggest things and that’s really, at the end of the day, our mission and purpose.”To learn more about Hope Shores Alliance, visit the link http://hopeshores.org/AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Agency, Atlanta, Briley Township Park, domestic violence awareness month, Hope Shores Alliance, Montmorency County, nonprofit, purple, Shelter Inc.Continue ReadingPrevious Hillman Area Schools placed in secure mode after students talk of knifeNext New Book Bistro offers students a taste for readinglast_img read more
