If you’re not a resident of the Tryon area, here are three local media outlets we’re following for digestible, up-to-date WEG news. They might smooth out your visit. For certain they’ll offer insights into the horse mecca of the foothills.
- The Tryon Daily Bulletin. Lately, “The World’s Smallest Daily Newspaper” has been providing big traffic and road construction updates — If like me you’ve had your share of TEs from going off-course, take
steedheed. You’ll recognize the printed version of the bulletin in the gas stations. It’s 8 1/2 x 11, or a quarter the size of major newspapers. Bonus: Old-fashioned ads and a few spunky (and occasionally scary) stories.
- NBC local affiliate WLOS. For months they’ve been rounding out the story of the Games from an editorial standpoint. WLOS broadcasts locally on Channel 13 out of Asheville.
- This Week in Tryon Daily Horse Country. Our beloved online newsletter of all things horse in the greater Tryon area. It’s a labor of love and includes a comprehensive horse-related calendar, short articles, a featured artwork, and announcements. They have a website but to get the weekly you have to subscribe (free). The online sign-up link wasn’t working on my laptop today so you can always e-mail the editor, Judy Heinrich, at [email protected] See the latest issue here.
See you here. Go Eventing!
