nish line, and hopeyou win,” Jane said. “Therewill be trophies for the topthree winners.”Back by popular demandis the USA Amateur BoxingCompetition with Fistsof Fury presented by theKnockout Factory and co-sponsored by Seneca Gaming& Entertainment and SnakesSmokes. It is free to thepublic, and will be held behindJefferson Street School at 6pmon Saturday.

Lawrence saysorganizers set up “a veryaggressive itinerary” of everal stops, so he could see“the very best of what bothcounties have to offer” inerms of tourism attractionsand accommodations. “We hadgreat fun showing him areaamenities like Ellicottville,oliday Valley, Onovillearina, and Chautauquanstitution.” The tour traveled“just shy of eight hundrediles in four days” throughhe two counties, this time bycar, not horse.For their part, Holidayalley was happy to welcomeom Seay as their guest.ane Eshbaugh, Director of arketing at Holiday Valleyaid, “He’s a really great guyith a great personality, reallyfunny. We were able to showim some of the things that areavailable to people when theyare not riding.” She pointedout that there are plenty of hings to do in Cattaraugusounty, on and off the trails.Seay commented, “I’ve neverfelt more welcome, moreat home” in this area. Heappreciated the hospitality of he New York Horse Counciland is considering includinghe Southern Tier as partof a possible “major triparound New York focusingon this area with horses andagons,” perhaps next fallor the following spring. Thedea would be to “highlighthe people, the beauty, and theattributes of this area.” Headded, “I cannot wait to comeack here.”Seay was raised on a farm,and harvesting corn was oneof the tasks with which he wasnvolved. Watching the localmish community harvestcorn brought back memoriesof his youth. He went on to saythat Southern Tier residentshave outdoor opportunities“that other communitieswould just beg to have,”noting that people living here“don’t realize” it. He alsocommented that the peoplehere “are just the icing on thecake.” He noted that residentsmust seize the opportunity tomaintain trails and keep themfrom being closed, in light of pending government cutbacksto parks.During his visit, Seay metwith members of the SenecaNation. He has offered tocome back and “help recordhistory of their elders” onvideo and audio for theSeneca-Iroquois NationalMuseum in Salamanca. “Iwas truly inspired and felta kinship” with the Senecapeople. “If they want us to(record their history), we willdo it.” Seay would also like toreturn to the Amish Countryof Western New York, “toshow the meaning behindwhat they do and why theydo it.” Seay had originallyintended to make one, half-hour long show about his visithere. But plans have changed.“There were so many placesto see and visit, there’s justno way to get all of this in oneshow. So we think we will doa show (maybe two), but we’llalso show short segments on avisit to this place or that, or oninteresting individuals we’vemet.” One or two-minutesegments will be spotlightedin a number of shows, startingthe
rst of the year in 2010.For example, Cherry Creekis a “wonderful, wonderful”place, but a visit to the Amishthere cannot be shown intwenty to thirty seconds.Viewers should stay alert earlyin January and will be informedon Tom Seay’s website, www.bestofamericabyhorseback.com. His network, RFD TV, iscarried by Direct TV and DishNetwork. “We may try to makespecial arrangements withsome of the cable systems” inthe area to give them a copy of the show, so they could air itlocally. Seay notes that RFDhas an agreement with Time-Warner, so “we’ll make sure itgets on.”
