Fly Creek Cider Mill’s own, Charlie Michaels, was recently recognized by the Freeman’s Journal, as an avid collector of Cider Mill Antiques as well as the President of the International Society of Apple Parer Enthusiasts. Fly Creek Cider Mill has a long-standing habit of bringing joy to the masses. Even for kids raised with all the current modern technology, joy and amazement is seen on their faces when they witness the genius of “older technology” such as an apple parer or apple slicing machine.

If only they could see the millions of nano-chips and circuits inside their iPods and flash memory, they might still be amazed at what their “stuff” does. Only when you see things work with moving parts can you get a true insight into the pure genius behind any invention. Tech-history is best seen in action, not in books. View the Full Article

The Daily Star published an article about Cider Mills in New York and talked to Bill at the Fly Creek Cider Mill. 

From the Article: According to Bill Michaels, vice president of family-owned and -operated Fly Creek Cider Mill and Orchard, the mill staff began pressing apples on Labor Day weekend and will continue to make cider through Thanksgiving. “We produce over 20,000 gallons of cider annually,” Michaels said. “We freeze 5,000 gallons to sample and sell to our spring summer and December visitors as well as our online store, year-round customers.”

Fly Creek Cider Mill, located just a few minutes from Cooperstown, and in its 152nd year, is one of the area’s largest cider producers and a premiere tourist destination. It was purchased by Charles and Barbara Michaels in 1962 and was sold to son Bill and his wife, Brenda Palmer-Michaels, in 1999. Since retaining ownership, the younger Michaelses have added many features including gourmet food, a bakery and even a winery. As a licensed New York State Winery, the mill has developed hard ciders and apple wines. “We are offering these winery beverages as a return to the cider making traditions of the past here at the mill,” Michaels said.

New York native, Steve Flesch, who is ranked only 71st this year, plans to win the championship at the Turning Stone Atunyote. The Indian Nation published a news release claiming, while smiling, that the course is “Lucky.” Well, at 71st, it certainly will prove lucky for this New York native since he won over a million dollars, his career best. Atunyote can’t be lucky for everybody, so maybe it will prove lucky for New Yorkers, or who knows. The upcoming event has a six million dollar purse. A lot of money at stake and it happens right here in the Central New York area. I don’t think anybody can argue that this is great for New York, especially Upstate New York. Watch Steve Flesch Video From WKTV – VERNON, N.Y. (WKTV) – With less than a day until the Turning Stone Resort Championship, the last minute details are being ironed out.

NEW YORK, Sept 30 (Reuters) – New Zealand teenager Danny Lee, who eclipsed Tiger Woods last month as the youngest U.S. amateur champion, has set his sights on victory when he makes his second PGA Tour appearance of the season this week.

The Rotorua High School senior, 18, said he wanted to impress at the $6 million Turning Stone Resort Championship in Verona, New York.

“I’m not just here for making the cut,” Lee told reporters on Tuesday during preparation for Thursday’s opening round. “Hopefully if I play well enough I can win this tournament. That’s my goal.”

Lee, who beat American Drew Kittleson 5&4 in the U.S. amateur final in Pinehurst, North Carolina last month, plans to turn professional after next year’s U.S. Open. View the Full Reuters Article

It seems as though Turning Stone’s Atunyote Golf Club has more than just plush greens. Ray Halbritter claims it is simply good luck to play at Turning Stone.

From “Singh, Villegas get boost from Atunyote” on Thursday, September 11, 2008 by Chris Wagner, Golf Writer for Syracuse.com, “…Six days after the exhibition, Singh won the Deutsche Bank Championship for his second straight FedEx Cup playoff victory. Weir was second and Villegas tied for third. Last week, Villegas won the BMW Championship for his first PGA Tour title.

With ties for 33rd and 60th in those two events, only Cink has failed to come through. Maybe he’s waiting to cash in his good-luck charm during next week’s Ryder Cup. Trust me, the U.S. team, loser of five of the last six Cups, could use any help it can get.” Read the Full Article
