Another Potential Olympic Venue

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is looking for a 500 acre site to potentially build a shooting range that would be suitable for national competitions. Of course, such a site could just as easily be used for a potential Olympic bid.

This is another example that demonstrates how close the Minneapolis-Saint Paul region would be to having all the facilities needed to host a Summer Olympics.

Those that say hosting the Games are too expensive are not well informed. The last three Olympics held in the U.S. made money. There's no reason that a properly managed effort in the Twin Cities couldn't also be financially successful. We're likely to be building most of the needed venues anyway.
