Until we meet again Moscow

 SHEREMETYEVO International Airport has bid farewell to the players and fans of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. For the past month, Sheremetyevo International Airport witnessed about 33 800 takeoff and landing operations and 4.7 million passengers. The growth was due to the growing demand for air travel during summer holiday season as well as football fans from all over the world, who visited #Moscow and took part in the most anticipated sporting event of the year.

The new Terminal B and the tunnel connecting Sheremtyevo-1 and Sheremetyevo-2 were constructed for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and are part of the Long-Term Development Plan. This plan ensures that Sheremetyevo will increase its capacity to 80 million passengers per year by 2026, making it one of the top 10 largest passenger hubs in the world. The success of the World Cup demonstrates that the Long-Term Development Plan is on pace to meet that target.

Rodeo Action in Monterey

THE Pattee Arena at the 2018 Monterey County Fair will go wild when the Flying U Rodeo & the Flying Cowboyz return for four shows August 31-September 2, at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center.  The Flying U Rodeo features exciting, fan-favorite events such as bull riding and American bull fighting, but with the added flair of new events such as bull poker, ring of fire, toro teeter totter and FMX.

Cotton Rosser is a name that has become synonymous with quality #rodeo production. After a ranch accident in 1956 abruptly ended a promising career as a rodeo contestant, Cotton purchased the Flying U Rodeo Company.

For the past several decades, Cotton and his family have worked to make the Flying U one of the most successful stock contracting firms in professional rodeo. Cotton has long been known for his outstanding rodeo productions, including the flamboyant opening ceremonies presented at the National Finals Rodeo, the Houston Livestock Show and the Grand National Rodeo in San Francisco just to name a few.

Full steam ahead

THE Talyllyn Railway was the first of the small railways to be rescued by a preservation society, and is now one of the Great Trains of Wales. Race the Train takes place Saturday August 18th, alongside as far as practicable the route taken by the Talyllyn Railway on its journey to Abergynolwyn and back. In order to do this all courses use a mixture of public roads, lanes, un-metalled roads,tracks, agricultural land, and rough grazing pastures. 


A must for all multi - terrain runners many of whom return regularly to try and better their performance or just beat that train while others have run nearly every year since the races started. The challenge of not only racing your fellow competitor’s but also the Train. Having been televised world-wide on several occasions we have attracted many runners from abroad coming from as far away as New Zealand, Australia, America, Hong Kong, Africa etc.
