2013 Corn Maze Opens September 21, and Runs Every
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, Through October 27
Waterloo, IN (August 23, 2013) – With Fall just around the corner, Amazing Acres Farms, LLC, operators of the Amazing Fall Fun Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch™ today announced that the popular attraction for families and kids of all ages will feature two corn mazes, one with a layout in the likeness of Andrew Luck, NFL franchise quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts.
“This year, Amazing Fall Fun would like to show our support of the Indianapolis Colts and new Quarterback Andrew Luck,” said Larry Smith, founder and operator of Amazing Fall Fun, and owner of Amazing Acres Farms. “The maze will comprise an image of Andrew Luck and the Colts’ logo. There will also be an Andrew Luck trivia game to play throughout the maze.”
Now in its third year of operation, the Amazing Fall Fun Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch is a regional attraction drawing thousands of visitors from the tri-state area. Amazing Acres Farms is located just five minutes East of Waterloo (East on US 6, exit 334, off I-69) at 3150 County Road 43, Waterloo Indiana, 46793. Events will open on Saturday, September 21, and will operate every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, through Sunday, October 27.
“We’ve designed two Corn Mazes and Amazing Fall Fun events for all ages,” said Smith. “We are particularly excited about our biggest Maze ever – a 12-acre maze that, from the air, looks like Quarterback Andrew Luck of the Colts poised and ready to make a winning pass across a field of 10-foot high corn.” He adds, “The Andrew Luck Maze is going to be fun and challenging. Some people may get lost for a while navigating dozens of turns and dead-ends in this year’s maze.”
“We also have a five-acre acre “Halloween Trail” Maze, which was a hit last year. This corn maze features surprises and special effects for nighttime fun,” said Smith. “We’re telling everyone to bring a flashlight after dark.” The Halloween Trail Maze opens on Friday, October 4, and will be open through October 27.
In addition to the two Mazes, the Amazing Fall Fun attraction includes numerous Fall fun activities, including a Pumpkin Patch, Hayrides, a Straw Mountain, a Corn Box (16-foot by 16-foot box filled with corn), a fun feature especially designed for kids, a Tractor Tire Mountain, a Straw Maze made with more than 120 bales of straw, Cornhole games, and many other family fun activities.

The Indianapolis Colts today waived-injured wide receiver Nathan Palmer, placed safety John Boyett on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list and moved linebacker Josh McNary to an exempt status on the roster.
If Palmer clears waivers, he will revert to the Colts Injured Reserve list. McNary’s exemption is under the Reserve/Military rules where the player reported after June 1, 2013 and has not played in any preseason games.
With the moves today, the Colts have reached the league-mandated 75-man active roster.
Palmer was signed by the Colts off the San Francisco 49ers practice squad on September 24, 2012. Last season, he caught one pass in five games played.
Boyett was selected by the Colts in the sixth round (192nd overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. At Oregon, he appeared in 40 games (35 starts) and totaled 278 tackles (182 solo), 30 passes defensed, 10 interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown, and a half of a sack.
McNary was signed by the Colts as a free agent on April 11, 2013. At Army, he totaled 195 tackles (117 solo), 49.0 tackles for loss, 28.0 sacks, nine passes defensed, five forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries in 46 games played. Following his graduation from West Point, McNary was commissioned as an officer in the Army, which prevented him from being selected in the 2011 NFL Draft.

It’s a shortened week at the Indiana Farm Bureau Football Center with the Colts traveling to Cincinnati for the preseason finale on Thursday night. Today’s news looks at the good news surrounding Anthony Castonzo’s knee injury and the beginning of cuts for the Colts.
Take a look below at the top pieces from Tuesday, August 27th.

With Anthony Castonzo sidelined on Thursday evening, versatile lineman Joe Reitz will get the starting nod at left tackle against the Bengals.
Adaptability has been one of the Hamilton Southeastern High School product’s strongest attributes, and might prove invaluable once again as he attempts to spend a fourth season with the Colts.
“It’s just wherever you can fit in,” Reitz said Monday. “As a lineman, the more versatility the better.”
Spoken like someone who has been here, there, everywhere since he was a standout in basketball and football for the Royals.
Reitz likely will start at left tackle in Thursday’s preseason finale at Cincinnati while Anthony Castonzo deals with a mild sprain to the medial collateral ligament in his right knee.

As Cleveland Browns outside linebacker Paul Kruger rolled into Anthony Castonzo’s leg on Saturday night, a collective gasp came over the Colts faithful.
Imagine how Castonzo himself felt.
“When it happened, you kind of get rolled up on, you start thinking about all the hard work you put in the offseason and to get that news that it’s only going to be a short-term thing was very good,” Castonzo said Monday.
The MRI done on Castonzo’s knee revealed a sprain of the medial collateral ligament. He believes he’ll be ready for the season opener against Oakland at Lucas Oil Stadium on Sept. 8.
“Kind of just taking it day-by-day,” said Castonzo, who is responsible for protecting quarterback Andrew Luck’s blindside. “Hoping that yeah, that will be plenty (of time). My goal is to be ready for Oakland.”
