Pechanga Asian Media Night – Grand Opening of $300 Million Dollar Expansion

On March 8, 2018, WCETV – R&C Media Group, Inc. spent the afternoon with Pechanga for their Asian Media Night. An incredible experience, in the Four Diamond service hotel, seeing their $300 million expansion come to life. We are even more excited about the number of rooms totaling to a grand 1,090 with 55″ and 65″ television screens, high speed internet, spacious bathrooms, and native decor.

On top of that, there are hair and nail treatments, gyms, a green roof, and gorgeous pool complex. Book fast during concerts and events and don’t hesitate to grab reservations for the spa.

Pechanga has proven to be a top runner in the Asian population with Asian celebrity performances and events, an Asian friendly destination. The welcome team for every group of ethnicities continues to grow and is above and beyond – personable and professional.

When you ask Pechanga’s Development Corporation President, Edith Atwood, what they are most excited about, it is the opportunities it gives the community to preserve culture for future generations, education, employment, and healthcare for the people of the tribe.

It was a pleasure seeing the communities coming together to build and preserve. Here are the highlights from the fantastic event.

New App Bobsleigh Immerses Thrill Seekers In Fastest Sport On Ice

New App Bobsleigh 360 Immerses Thrill Seekers In Fastest Sport On Ice
Port Orange, Florida, February 20, 2018 ― Winter sports fans who crave the speed and intensity of the bobsleigh can now experience the thrills from the pilot’s seat with the Bobsleigh 360 app for Android and iOS. 

Users can experience the precision of the team’s climb into the sleigh, the struggle of the push-off, and mind-bending speeds approaching 90 mph as the bobsleigh races down an Olympic bobsleigh track, banking through 15 to 20 heart-stopping turns. 

Bobsleigh 360 app features:

•    360-degree video of actual bobsleigh runs
•    User-controlled viewpoint during the run
•    Support for 2D and VR viewing
•    New runs and tracks added as they are available

Bobsleigh 360 is based on a first-of-its-kind VR training tool developed by Raydon Corporation, a military simulation training company, in Port Orange, Florida. Raydon created the training tool to improve the safety and performance of bobsleigh teams. Bobsleigh 360 gives coaches a 360-degree view of a pilot’s high-speed run, where every millisecond counts. It can be viewed on a tablet or on a VR headset for a fully immersive experience. The Latvian bobsleigh team, silver medal winners at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, has incorporated the tool into their training regimen in preparation for the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. Raydon has donated the training tool to Latvia and other countries.
