The latest from Wendover

Thanks for the email Wes, it got me to write a little here. I think I owe everyone an update on the current conditions here in Wendover.

Next Thursday (06/07/07) we are having another WSOP Satellite, a $150 buy in for a shot at the main event. It starts at 7pm, but you need to get there early to guarantee a seat. Weve been filling up every time. About 3pm is a good cutoff, but no guarantees.

Rainbow/Peppermill/Montego Bay Have announced plans to build a new Italian themed resort tentatively named “Tuscan”. It will be located between Montego Bay and The Concert Hall just east of the Peppermill. It will actually be built where the street exists now and the entire road from just past the water tower west of the Nugget to the intersection of highway 93 will be moved south into the area they are currently filling in. It involved a land swap deal with the city which has already been approved by city council. It pretty much sounds like a done deal, and knowing the owners, it will be top of the line. I’ve seen some drawings and it looks pretty nice.

The second major development is being done on the west end of town and up around the golf course. The plans call for homes, condos, and a major casino. Plans for all can be seen at I hope they hurry, because I think a little competition would be good for Wendover. Some new homes would be nice too.

Lets talk about the new city hall. Will it ever get built? I saw a ground breaking ceremony in March, but I haven’t seen any ground broken since. The picture sure looks nice though. I believe it will add alot to the community, so get it going!

Stay tuned.
