Making good on a wager

MIDDLEBURY, Conn. — Quassy Amusement Park’s George Frantzis packs up a UConn Huskies’ Championship Flag on April 29 in his Middlebury office. The flag is going to Beech Bend Park & Splash Lagoon in Bowling Green, Ky., to make good on a friendly wager. The deal between the two family-owned amusement parks: The winner (park) of the NCAA men’s championship basketball game will send a team flag to the other park where it will be flown atop the wooden roller coaster. Connecticut beat Kentucky for this year’s title, so Beech Bend’s Kentucky Rumbler coaster will fly the flag on opening day this coming Saturday.
