Also, how are you going to pay for this arena? Are you going to charge the locals $10 to see their kids play ball? How about everyone else that enjoys watching the games, but aren't willing to dish out the extra dough to watch? Last time I went to an open air school event that charged an admission fee, I dished out $20 for the family to get in. How much will a covered arena cost?
I'm not saying it's a stupid idea, I just think it is very far-fetched and believe there are many out there that would agree with me. I would love for Ketchikan to have a nice field to play on. Turf is cool. It can be played on in all weather as long as the field is built correctly. Just look at BSU's blue smurf-turf.
My thought is that before we go about trying to build some covered sports arena, maybe we should just start with a nice turf field with real bleachers and lights and facilities and THEN see if we attract any attention.
