Karting World Champions

Do you enjoy GoKarting? If so you might want to start following the Kart World Championship. Although GoKart racing may be a bit obscure it is an international sport, and the world championships are held in a different country every year. This year the competition was held in Denmark at the largest GoKart track in Europe. This year the race was held from July 21st to July 26th. Rather than a mass start the race is held in heats, if you aren’t in fast enough you are eliminated and don’t move on to the finals. This year the winner was Nielsen Jannik from Denmark. You can find out more about the competition here.

Happy Birthday to YOU! This is for the some 15 million people celebrating their birthday today. Here are some fun birthday facts:

  • More people are born on Tuesday than any other day and it’s counter part, representing the least amount of birthdays, is Sunday.
  • The most common birthday is October 5th.
  • “Happy Birthday” is the most popular song in the English Language.
  • The Germans started birthday celebrations for children when they began something called “kinderfest”, which means child festival. Over time this changed into modern birthday parties which are for everyone.
  • Before birthdays were as popular as they are today, only the roalties’ birthdays was deemed important enough to celebrate. Parties were thrown to ward off evil spirits. This is where traditions such as noise makers came into practice, as they were used to ward off evil spirits.

Gateway Employee Corner

This week in the Gateway Employee Corner Erin tells us about her favorite hiking location!

Erin

If you’re looking for an easy, family friendly hike, I’d say Button Rock Trail is the place to go.  Just a few minutes up highway 36, leaving lyons, it is an easily accessible hike that is fun for all levels of hikers.  The trail goes up a beautiful river, slowly ascending to a large dam.  Once you hike to the top of the dam, you reach a large, reservoir nestled in a majestic mountain valley.  I love taking a friend or my family, along with our beloved golden retriever and spending the morning hiking.  This trail is my favorite because of its diverse group of hikers and fishermen that you meet along the way, its the perfect difficulty and distance, and theres nothing more I love doing than watching my dog dive into the water playing fetch. Happy Hiking!
