New Name ‘on hold’, for now…

The Piedmont Triad Airport Authority saying that it’s now open to public suggestions for its new name for Piedmont Triad International Airport.

The decision last month to change the name of the airport from PTI to Central North Carolina International Airport was the beginning of a rebranding process.

After the name change was announced in December, local residents staged a mini revolt.   All references to PTI, including signage, will remain unchanged for now.   BTW:  The ‘GSO’ flight code will not change.”  https://goo.gl/iJooTS

Boone vs LA: APP fans flock to small mountain town in record numbers!

Appalachian State University repeated as the home-game attendance leader in the Sun Belt Conference for the 2017 football season. But it also did something more impressive. The Mountaineers in Boone drew a larger average home-game crowd than one NFL team in California?  Both the Mountaineers’ Kidd Brewer Stadium and the StubHub Center, the home of the Los Angeles Chargers offer 30,000 seats. But, Boone averaged more fans this football season!   Way to go Mountaineers.    https://goo.gl/mg56BV
