A little about Bristol, CT

Bristol CT is a fairly large city (over 75,000 residents last time I checked), with an industrial base. It's top employer now, is ESPN the sports network, and a division of ABC.


Everything in the picture at left has some significance:
Starting at the top left, the hot air balloons signify the "Balloons Over Bristol", festival held twice a year. The roller coaster, is one of the oldest wooden roller coasters in existance, located at Lake Compounce, the longest continually run amusement park in the United States. The carousel horse, is from the New England Carousel Museum, located here in Bristol, where old horses and menagerie are restored by master craftsmen. The "Phantom of the Opera", is from Witches Dungeon, a small museum open only around halloween every year, where a local artist, has created the likenesses of many a screen and movie monsters. He is also the person that drew the design on the picture, Courtland Hull. The drums and flags, are reminicent of our proud history of our veterans of war. There is a Memorial Boulevard in town, dedicated to all our fallen veterans. The ball and bat represent the Eastern Regional Little League
