Golden Nugget Farewell Receives a Brass Ring at IA

Yet another prestigious honor has been garnered by Morey's Piers. The organization was presented a Brass Ring for "Best Special Event" for January's Golden Nugget Farewell Ceremony by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) last night in Las Vegas.

An official statement from the Moreys read:

The real honor of the Brass Ring goes to the more than 1,000 people who traveled great distances to pay their respects in freezing weather, see a memorial exhibit, hear eulogies, receive memorial tokens, and warm over clam chowder to view a model of a new coaster. This honor also goes to those who led us in the ceremony, including the leadership of ACE and DAFE, the members of the “Bud” Hunt and John Allen families, and representatives of Philadelphia Toboggan Coasters. Finally, this Brass Ring also honors our team, for planning and organizing the event, making the memorial tokens and the exhibit, and serving the refreshments.
