Poker tourney, horse racing and entertainment park and Frigate Bay

I realize that I have not added any new posts to my blog for some time now, and I apologize for not keeping you updated on what's happening here in St. Kitts and Nevis. Quite a bit has been happening, so much that it's been quite a task to keep up with working on my website, forum and blog, while keeping a full time job. Anyway things have slowed down a bit for me so hopefully I'll be able to post here more often.

So, to get the ball rolling, here's what I have for you today (not everything is hot off the press, but I believe it's worth sharing with you.

If you love casinos and gambling, then you will be happy to know that from November 26th to December 3rd, 2005, the Royal Beach Casino at the St Kitts Marriott Resort will be hosting the 2005 Caribbean Poker Classic Tournament. More information available here.

Horse and dog racing will be coming to St. Kitts in the near future. That's right, the US$17 million Beaumont Park Race Track that is presently under construction in the Whitegate area of Dieppe Bay, St. Kitts will feature thoroughbred horse racing and greyhound racing . Beaumont Park's vision is for St. Kitts to have the premier horse and greyhound racing track in the Caribbean. The Beaumont Heights real estate residential development overlooks the Beaumont Park Race Track. More information available here.

Finally, the lands around the Salt Pond at South Frigate Bay are being developed into a community entertainment park. There will be space for space for picnicking, kite flying and separate jogging, pedal biking and walking trails. There is also discussion about developing the pond for recreational fishing, kayaking and canoeing. Read more about this exciting development here.
