"At their meeting on Thursday, the Bradford County commissioners discussed various matters related to gas drilling, including their recent trip to Arkansas, where the Fayetteville Shale natural gas reservoir is located.
While in Arkansas, they met with municipal economic development official Brad Lacy to find out how Conway, a city of 50,000 located near the center of the state, draws in tourists and other outsiders, McLinko said.
To bring in visitors to Conway, numerous air conditioned gyms and softball and baseball fields in the Conway area were designated for youth athletic tournaments, and those tournaments are now held throughout the year, he said."
