I've looked into a couple of sites for discussion/consideration:
For Winter War Maneuvers on Jan. 16, 2016: Lancaster Co.
Event Center, the Lincoln Room
Dimensions: 86 x 200 ft or 17,200 square
feet, with a 25 ft high ceiling
Concrete floor (not polished, just regular concrete)
Available from 7 am to midnight... I've told them
approximately 7 am to 7 pm would likely suffice
We'd have to devise a privy chamber.... maybe a Viking tent
or a yurt?
Access to as many as 64 tables (I'm guessing we MIGHT need
10) and 520 chairs (might need 100- 150)
They do charge for $6 for 3 gallons of water, which is
provided in their water coolers. However, they've agreed to
let us have access to their tap water to use in our coolers
for mixing Gatorade.
Cost is $1,298 (plus $6 x the number of plain water coolers
we need -- probably at least a couple?)
They run a concession stand (burgers, hot dogs, chips, etc)
that they say they will keep open for as long as we want.
Maybe it would work best if we could identify a 2 hour
Hmm. Forgot to ask about clean up. If we decide to go with
this site, that should be something checked.
We should let them know as soon as possible. We are
"penciled in" which means if someone else wants to rent the
space, LCEC staff will phone us to see if we still want it.
For Fighter Practice on 2nd and 4th Tuesdays: Easterday
Recreation Center, located at about 63rd & Adams Street
Available after 6:30 pm on Tuesdays. I'd estimated for 2
For the gym only, the initial cost would be $46/hour. After
a couple of times, during which building staff trains two City
employees (Callaghan and me) to close/lock up the facility,
the cost would go down to $37/hour.
The gym is a nice size (not a full basketball court but more
than a half court) and has a cushioned floor... kind of
rubbery --- it was a good surface for fighting when we last
used this site.... maybe 20 years ago?
There's paperwork to fill out and they ask for the fee 1 to
4 weeks in advance. Kerry, the center director, says 1 week in
advance is fine.
There's plenty of free parking
It's in northeast Lincoln -- closer for Omaha folk, farther
for MM folk northwest and southwest of Lincoln.
I made zero commitments on this one, thinking cost might be
