One week after a Facebook campaign was launched to keep the Spud Drive In Theater in Driggs, Idaho from closing, arrangements have been made to keep the iconic attraction open for another season.  A group of people who had been involved in running the drive-in in the past came together to form a plan to resurrect the theater.  Dawnelle Mangum who was among that group and posted on the “Save The Spud” site, quoting now, “Your posts have given us much needed encouragement.”  Within a week, over 1600 people responded to the Facebook site.  With the theater’s new digital projector sold by Wydaho Group, the theater’s owner since last year, the group reopening the theater quickly reinstalled the old projector and prepared the projection booth for action.  Mangum says, she sought to lease the drive-in for this summer and beyond and the corporation has given that effort to keep the theater open its full support.  Mangum says they are planning on some great improvements, and she says future of the drive-in (in her words) “looks really good.”  The gate opens at 7:30 pm.

    By some strange luck, I shot really well last week in our trap league. But last night, I didn’t do so well. Not even close. The thing about shooting trap is that you’re bound to have good rounds once in a while. Those good nights give you hope that you’re improving. For some people, that […]
  • Cowboy O-Line Being Told To Be the Hammer, Not the Nail [AUDIO] - April 16, 2014
    The Wyoming Cowboy football team will have one more practice before Saturday’s spring game.  The major focus this spring, at least for the offensive line, is to be more physical and deliver the blows.  As offensive line coach Scott Fuchs tells the unit, “be the hammer, not the nail”.  That’s a difference in philosophy between […]
  • Find some new places to fish - April 16, 2014
    Instead of fishing the same old places this spring, do something different. Find a new honey hole. You don’t have to go to the same place every time you go fishing. When you find a good spot to fish, it’s nice to know you can go back there and catch fish. But if your honey […]
