aiken sc: The way a finals match should be!! - 05/16/12 06:29 PM
I had the pleasure of attending the Smoak Family Polo Tournament Finals match on Sunday - and what a match, wow!! This was one of the best 8-goal matches I have ever seen. Lots of defense, offense, skill, speed... After the 6th chukker it was a tie game, so it went into sudden-death overtime. It was non-stop action, both teams proved they deserved to be in the finals! You don't see this kind of scoring usually in an 8-goal tourny. (8 goal is the handicap level total of the players on each team - If you're not too sure about polo - check out some (0 comments)

aiken sc: toes in the sand! - 09/18/09 11:51 AM
Aiken is a great little city - but every once in awhile we all need to 'get away'! My place to go has always been the shore. Down here they call it 'the beach' :)
My favorite beach (since moving here) in SC is definitely Hilton Head Island. Just a little more than a 2 hour drive and you are at the coast - with your toes in the sand :)

Meet my nephew Jay, and his bowling teammates! 6 years old and he is well on his way to pro status! The Three Musketeers. When asked how they came up with their team name, Jay had this to say "Someone just wrote it on the paper, probably mommy. Me and Jacob liked it, but Austin didn't."
Jacob - Jay - Austin Jay and his sister Lexi are both on the Saturday Park Ave Youth League at Park Avenue Lanes, Aiken SC. Both have open bowled many times but this is their first turn at league play. :) (both of their parents (5 comments)
aiken sc: Adopt a Rescue Dog :) - 10/15/08 09:46 PM
If you are looking for a dog - please consider adopting a rescue dog. Look for a place in your county. Danny & Ron run a rescue, and recently adopted out their 1000th dog :) MOST OF THESE DOGS (800) WERE RESCUED FROM HURRICANE KATRINA. Their operation is TOTALLY NON-PROFIT - they just don't want to see any more dogs be put down. They go and rescue these pups from the mills and just want to find good homes for them. They take them home and care for them until a 'forever family' is found :) They recently were awarded with an (13 comments)

Did you know that Aiken SC is a City of Character? (and some charactors too, lol) j/k. "OUR CITY WILL BE JUDGED BY THE CHARACTER OF OUR CITIZENS" Anyway - back in 1999 a resolution was passed by the Aiken City Council to support a 'Community of Charactor' initiative in Aiken - THE FIRST IN SOUTH CAROLINA!! We really are trend setters here in this little horse town :)
What does this mean? Well, each month a character trait is presented to the community to encourage citizens OF ALL AGES to become better role models of good character. AND..every (4 comments)

Did you get a chance to come on out for the 'Ford Trucks Equestrian Balloon Festival'? It was alot of fun.

I hope you were able to come out to see it. Sunday morning the gates opened one last time for a mass ascension of the balloons - filling the skies over Aiken with a beautiful sight -/ Here are some pictures from the glow on Saturday night:

Do you know? I know!! I know!! This is a great little piece of trivia for EVERYONE!! There are alot of sports in the world using very large playing fields. A baseball field is pretty big. What about Soccer -Field Hockey - Rugby??? What about Lacrosse?............ (A Lacrosse field is 110' long by 60' wide) By now you are thinking - come on, Kara - we know it is a football field! Is that what you are thinking?? That it must be a football field? Well, a football field is 360' long by 160' wide.
