KOA Campground Hosts Olympic Competitors
The USA bobsled and skeleton men’s and women’s teams, trainers, coaches and staff members recently enjoyed an evening at the Kampgrounds of America Inc. (KOA) facility in Colorado Springs, Colo. KOA Campground. is a major sponsor and partners with the teams in community events and gatherings around the country, according to a news release. Colorado Springs KOA manager Dennis Schultz hosted the group on June 17 at the request of KOA CEO Jim Rogers, who wanted to invite the team to experience the fun and relaxation of KOA’s outdoor hospitality. “The campground is very close to Fort Carson and the USA Olympics Training facility, so we are happy to support both the local military and Olympics personnel year-round,” said Schultz. The teams enjoyed a variety of activities along with a barbecue dinner. Entertainment was provided by Louis and Pat Jett, a first-year KOA Work Kamper couple. The team was shuttled to the campground on a bus, which didn’t allow room for them to bring a bobsled. Schultz said they promised to send him autographed photos of team members with the bobsled that features the bright yellow KOA logo on the front. “We’re looking forward to putting those pictures up here at the campground. I told them we’ll host them for another party anytime,” said Schultz.
