In This Issue: March, 2019

Can you believe it’s March already? It was also almost a year ago that we reported in Cabarrus Magazine of a new attraction coming to Cabarrus County – iFly Indoor Skydiving. This month, that attraction will open near I-85, Exit 49, in Concord.

Its opening inspired us to look to the skies for this issue, so we’ve called it Flying High. And, just to put any rumors to rest, we will not be discussing the legalization of marijuana in this edition. That is not the kind of ‘high’ we’re talking about. No, rather, we’re talking about the rush you can only get with the natural exhilaration of being up in the air.

Not only will we give you a special preview of the new iFly facility, but we’ll also take you for a ride in the real thing as we talk to aviation instructors available at Concord-Padgett Regional Airport. Plus, we’ll talk to the owners of a local retreat that has its own ropes course. Your natural high awaits!

On a separate note, I want to encourage each of you to check out our new weekly podcast, Up Front with Cabarrus Magazine! Each week, we’ll talk about the area’s current issues and bring in special guests from the community. It is available for download on our website (, Facebook page and on iTunes.

If you think you have a special event or business that would make for interesting content on the podcast, please let us know! Of course, we couldn’t do any of it without our community sponsors: Code Ninjas, Concord Downtown Development Corporation and Family Wealth Partners. If you want more information on becoming a community sponsor, let us know that too.

With that, I will leave you until next month. Enjoy the spring as it approaches and remember to get out there and enjoy the air! As the late, Casey Kasem used to say, ‘Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!’
