New2Lou itself is making news this weekend.
Stacie Servo and her crew are headed up the Arctic-like waters of Lake Michigan where they will test their design abilities in Red Bull’s big Flugtag competition in Chicago.
We can tell you now that most, if not all, the “flying” contraptions built by Flugtag competitors end up in the drink.
But that’s okay … Stacie and her husband Amador Delatorre III created New2Lou out of their ability to get the most fun out of every event.
For those of us staying behind in Louisville this weekend, here are their recommendations:
Only two more days until we “fly” at the National Red Bull Flugtag competition in Chicago. Our Pegasus is almost ready to take flight and we’re so excited to represent Kentucky on the national stage! And we still need your support.
This is YOUR chance to be part of history by supporting the one and only Kentucky team! Give a little or a lot, whatever you can to help our team cross the finish line. We’d certainly appreciate it!
