We're quite appreciative of the amount of time the very busy Mike Pratt, CEO of the Olympic Regional Development Authority (ORDA) spent with us at today's meeting.  In addition to providing an overview of ORDA's activities at the Olympic Venues in our area and at the Bellayre facility in the Catskills, Mike gave us insights into the strategic thinking and planning that has gone into venue improvements, creating for vistiors and athletes - in additiona to us locals - experiences that are modern and sustainable for years to come.  Quite an interesting hour with Mike, full of information and things we can look forward to enjoying.
