Camper sales are growing, the share of caravans is falling

first_imgRELATED NEWS: Also, in addition to the 5 existing ones (Zaton Holiday Resort, Krk Premium Camping Resort, Valalta, Val Saline and Šimuni), This year, as many as 5 new Croatian camps received the ADAC Superplatz label (Aminess Maravea Camping Resort, Lanterna Premium Camping Resort, Omišalj, Baška Beach Camping Resort and Straško.), Thus entering the selection of the best leading European campsites by the ADAC. At the end of last year, a guide to German camps was presented ADAC for 2019 year in which the Croatian ones are also listed, a total of 129. ADAC: Average quality of Croatian camps in 2019 increased by 3% One of the most significant development trends in the segment of “camping vehicles” is a significant increase in the share of camper sales and a simultaneous decline in the share of caravans.  Based on the processing and analysis of ADAC data, KUH points out that they can be more than satisfied with numerous positive indicators of the quality of the Croatian camping offer. Thus, the average quality of Croatian camps in 2019 increased by 3%, the quality of camps by region is increasing (eg the highest growth is in the region of Šibenik, as much as + 14,3%!); while the campsites of Istria have the highest quality, with an average rating of 4,1 out of 5. At the national level, the selected best campsites were also awarded quality marks by the Croatian Camping Union – Croatia’s Best Campsites for 57 of them, and OK Mini Camps for them 41. CROATIA IS BECOMING MORE AND MORE RECOGNIZED BY WINTER CAMPING GERMAN ADAC CAMP GUIDE FOR 2019 PRESENTED As they point out from KUH, the mentioned trend must definitely point us to some of the determinants of the future development of our camping products, starting from differently equipped and size-appropriate pitches for modern campers, forming a “quick-stop” possibility within the camp, all the way to the necessary strong development of the network of continental camps and an even more significant increase in campsites that are open throughout the year.

LA Lakers’ poor defense, D’Angelo Russell’s emergence overshadow Kobe Bryant in loss to Memphis

first_img“We haven’t been able to guard anybody,” Lakers coach Byron Scott said. “Teams are scoring pretty much at will outside and inside.”So even if Jordan Clarkson (28 points on 10-of-18 clip) and D’Angelo Russell (22 points, career-high eight assists) produced offensively, they also played a part in allowing guards Mike Conley (24 points) and PJ Hairston (17 points) to do anything they pleased.“We never really had all five guys locked in on defense,” Russell said. “It was one or two guys sleeping.”Russell sounded just as honest about his offensive production and starting role in 33 minutes. Clarkson logged 40 minutes while Julius Randle (14 points, 11 rebounds) played in 33 minutes amid Scott’s quest they will all play at least 30 minutes through the rest of the season.“Earlier in the year I was given that starting spot and then had to work for it,” Russell said. “I don’t know about now if I worked for it. But I’m not going to try to give [Scott] a reason to bench me again.” Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Scott praised Russell’s improvement with attacking the basket and mid-range game before calling on him to improve his defense and decrease his 3-point attempts. Scott added, “it’s got to be something he does on a consistent basis.”But after often critiquing Russell, Bryant offered sympathy about the challenges Russell faced as a reserve. “The momentum takes place and you have to come in and adjust to what’s going on,” Bryant said. “It’s much easier for him when he does start to be able to control the game.”But even if Bryant’s play took a backseat for one night, his presence did not. The Grizzlies offered no video tribute, but the public address announcer praised Bryant’s accomplishments while he received a standing ovation during lineup introductions. Beforehand, Bryant also gushed about plenty of memories in this building.Bryant scored 60 points on March 22, 2007 in what still marks the most points scored against the Grizzlies at the FedEx Forum.“I remember being in a good groove,” Bryant said. “I had a really good touch on the ball. My pull-up jump shots were automatic.”Bryant fractured his left knee here on Dec. 18, 2013 in what became a season-ending injury. But he still led the Lakers to a win by playing in the second half on one leg. “I didn’t realize it was broken,” Bryant said. “I knew there was something going on in there. But I could walk and go on pretty well.” And Bryant faced Memphis forward Tony Allen, whom Bryant has considered his toughest defender. Allen even prompted Bryant to avoid the city’s barbecue.“I couldn’t necessarily take any shortcuts,” Bryant said. “He was the only one that took the challenge of playing straight up. He wasn’t looking for help.”The Grizzlies did not need much help to stop Bryant in his last stop here. But even worse, Memphis did not need much help to score anytime it touched the ball. center_img MEMPHIS >> This city once represented the place that Kobe Bryant unleashed his scoring outbursts against an opponent he described as “physical.”But in the Lakers’ 128-119 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday at FedEx Forum, Bryant’s last game here featured a few different things. Bryant scored a modest 13 points on 5-of-14 shooting in 29 minutes. Beforehand, the Lakers’ 37-year-old likened predicting his amounts of play to “a roll of the dice” because of his tenuous health. But the Lakers have larger issues. The Lakers struggled defensively as always. Memphis forward Matt Barnes suddenly became a lethal offensive threat (25 points on 9-of-14 shooting). The Lakers also hosted a layup line by conceding 54 points in the paint. last_img read more

NHL free agency rumors: Sergei Bobrovsky, Artemi Panarin meeting with Panthers on Monday

first_imgThat may be enough to get the star to Florida. But he also reportedly wants to play in a big city, so Florida might not be exactly what he wants.That fact won’t keep Florida from pursuing him though.Panarin is coming off of a season in which he had 28 goals and a career-high 59 assists. The Panthers have two big meetings Monday.Blue Jackets free agents Sergei Bobrovsky and Artemi Panarin are meeting with Florida on Monday, according to TSN. The Blue Jackets’ goalie has wanted out of Columbus for a while, but that hasn’t kept him from producing as he has won the Vezina Trophy twice and been in the running several other times.Florida did take goalie Spencer Knight in the first round Friday in the NHL Draft, but he is going to Boston College next season so he is at least a bit of a ways away from contributing at the professional level.As for Panarin, the former Blackhawks forward has a connection to Florida in that his former coach Joel Quenneville is now at the helm for the Panthers.

NFL Hall of Fame Game 2019: Three takeaways from Broncos’ win over Falcons

first_img Broncos’ Vic Fangio will coach Hall of Fame Game after treatment for kidney stone Football is back — kind of.The Hall of Fame game kicked off the NFL season Thursday and it was what you would expect. There were a lot of penalties and some poorly thrown balls and blown coverages. That concentration though‼️We 👀 you, @OnlyOne_JW! 👊#PFHOF19 | #DENvsATL— Denver Broncos (@Broncos) August 2, 2019That was the difference in Denver’s 14-10 win.Three takeaways from the NFL Hall of Fame GameNoah Fant has up-and-down gameNoah Fant looked like a rookie in his debut with the Broncos on Thursday and that’s by no means an insult.He flashed his quick feet and blocking skills, but he also dropped a pass and was called for holding..@Broncos first-round pick Noah Fant with his first catch of the preseason! @nrfant📺: @ProFootballHOF Game on NBCWatch on mobile:— NFL (@NFL) August 2, 2019The Broncos knew they were going to have to take the good with the bad when they selected Fant in the first round this year and they got a lot of both in his limited time Thursday.But, he showed he can do just what they got him to do and also helped lead the way on a rushing touchdown in the first half. Moments like that are a cherry on top at this moment for Denver. He has a chance to be a very good player.Drew Lock played; Kurt Benkert impressedProbably the most fun thing about NFL preseason games is getting to see rookies try their hand at the next level. Thursday, there was a good amount of anticipation to see the debut of Drew Lock, who was supposed to be a first-round pick but fell to the Broncos in the second.But, while many were looking forward to seeing Lock, it would be hard not to be excited by another quarterback — Falcons second-year man Kurt Benkert. Lock was fine in the game. He finished 7-of-11 passing for 34 yards, but Benkert showed off a wide assortment of skills and ran the offense like a player who has been running it for a couple of years — which he has, as he spent last season on Atlanta’s practice squad.Benkert was crisp with his passes and even broke off a 17-yard run in the first half. He was impressive no matter how you look at it, finishing 19-of-34 passing for 185 yards and a touchdown. Unfortunately, he had to leave the game in the fourth quarter with a toe injury, putting a damper on a good game.Easy money.QB @KurtBenkert ➡️ RB @Heezy2Liv5— Atlanta Falcons (@AtlantaFalcons) August 2, 2019As for Lock, he looked like a rookie playing in a Hall of Fame Game. There’s nothing wrong with that. He just didn’t look comfortable, yet, but he has time to get there. But there were some good and intriguing things, as well.There was even a late touchdown catch of the spectacular variety by Broncos rookie Juwann Winfree. Related News New pass interference review works as it shouldLike last year, when NFL fans were waiting to see how the “lowering the helmet rule” would play out in a game, this season everyone wanted to know how the pass interference review would go. The league is allowing such plays to be reviewed this season on a one-year trial basis.The answer — pretty well. Broncos coach Vic Fangio challenged a pass interference call in the first half Thursday and the play was upheld as it should have been. It’s an easy adjustment to make and it sure worked well in this game.The first challenge of a pass interference call.Hear the explanation behind the call.— SNF on NBC (@SNFonNBC) August 2, 2019last_img read more
