Moving the Hall of Fame

7 posts in this topic

What do you guy's think about moving the Hall of Fame to the "X"?

Personally, I think it should be moved as of now, no one visits it. You could charge an Adult $1.00, H.S. age $0.50 and children under 12 free and you would still make money.

The Rangers will spend every loose taconite fund nickle they have to save the hall of fame. It can't afford to run the lights on its own.

I guess that's kind of my point. It's a great thing to have but if no one visits, what's the sense? If it were located at the "X" it would be seen by thousands each year.

Where I agree that hockey in Minnesota has it's root's on the Range, the Hall of Fame should be more accessable.

I guess I should state why I bring this up. I read in the paper that there is some discussion about moving it. I think Duluth and the Excell Center were both mentioned. In addition, there are some other states also expressing interest in housing it. Just curious as to all you folks feel about it.

I would like to see it stay in Minnesota for sure. There is absolutely no doubt that it will receive the most visitors if it is in St. Paul either by the Excel Center or in it. I sure feel for those people in Eveleth that have helped it grow into what it is today.

I've heard rumors of moving it to the mall of america. If a freakin butterfly store can survive there, the HHOF should be able to make it. What does the MOA bring in each year? Something like 30 million people? That would make sense to me.

I would be alright with moving it if they keep it somewhere in Minnesota. I'll be honest, I drive by it twice a day and have been in it twice in my life. smirk.gifcrazy.gif

I agree that it must stay in MN. I have been there and it was nice when I was there 15 yrs ago. I saw the report in the Star Tribune and was amazed at what is happening. I feel for the city and people of Eveleth who put so much into it. Is it possible to keep most of the articles in Eveleth and give the people a taste of what is there with a little display at the X? Maybe that would spark some tourisim?

      Heck, everything darn near locked up today. This morning Cass was all locked up besides some water out just south of Cedar Island. Pike was frozen all the way across. I cruised to Naytahwaush to visit my mother today and everything was locked up besides Lake LaSalle , thich is 200+ feet deep.

      To be honest, a willingness to move and "hole-hop" is a great way to find biting fish.    Anothet shout-out to MN Lake Finder.
