Last night our very own Team REALTY WORLD who by the way, was the last team to sign up & had a diverse group of ages, pulled a 3rd place win last night. It was the first time Team REALTY WORLD had ever played together & left the fitness center with a feeling of great accomplishment. Not to mention, they had a lot of fun trying & looked GREAT & most definitely COMPETITIVE...

Even after they lost their 1st game of the night (which by the way was the only team to beat Team REALTY WORLD), they prevailed by winning the losers bracket advancing to the semi-finals round... After playing at least 5 more games, Team REALTY WORLD was on fire.. There was only 1 team that beat Team REALTY WORLD twice in order to advance to the Finals round.. keep in mind, the team that finally eliminated team REALTY WORLD had been practicing since 2 weeks prior the tournament & were in their early to mid 20's... Team REALTY WORLD had assembled the nite of the tournament & their ages consisted of 61, 38, 40, 16, 20 & 20 year olds... we would've had more videos or pix of team REALTY WORLD, but they played so good, it was hard to take an eye away from their games to take more snap shots & video..

Overall it was a fun night & since Team REALTY WORLD played with heart, teamwork & determination, they were able to go home with a well deserved 3rd place standing..

Congrats Team REALTY WORLD & thank you for representing... Can't wait til next year..

below are some pictures of the event.. It was soo much fun!

I-40 East & West NC & TN line CLOSED due to Rockslide

Slide-on-I40 TN & NC Border Birdseye

Slide-on-I40 TN & NC Border Birdseye

This massive rock slide happened this past Sunday, Oct. 25th at 2am. It's near mile marker 3 & they are projecting it could be 3 months to clean up. You can see why from the picture above that was obtained by the Haywood County Planning Department. It's a miracle that no one was seriously hurt or killed due to massive boulders, dirt & debris sliding down the mountain on to Interstate-40, affective both EAST & WEST directions.

If you have to travel that route, it's recommended detour around the slide is to take I-26 West to Johnson City, then take I-81 South back to I-40.. or you can take 441 into Gatlinburg & head from there.. It will be an incovenience, but due to mother nature's surprise slide, it is completely understandable.

Below is an email we received from the North Carolina Department of Commerce.. We'll continue to post updates as they become available.

From: Tuttell, Wit [mailto:wtuttell@nccommerce.com] Sent: Monday, October 26, 2009 4:19 PM To: North Carolina PR Hotline Contacts Subject: I-40 Rockslide response

Hello everyone. In response to the rockslide on I-40, the Division has taken several steps to work with the media and with visitors to ensure that an accurate picture of the situation is presented.

We have sent press releases to in-state and Southeastern media outlets explaining the exact nature of the detour and assuring them that North Carolina is still accessible for visitors from all sides and to all places.

We are also running updates on our website and announcing them through special NewsLink releases whenever the NC Department of Transportation releases new information.

The I-40 West Welcome Center is at mile marker 10, east of the rockslide. Because the interstate is closed and access to the Welcome Center is restricted, staff from the center will work at the I-26 West Welcome Center in Madison County at peak times during the fall color season.

We'll keep you updated as best we can as the situation unfolds.
