Should the Dome be available for public use?
The state of baseketball in this country can best be described as dire. Yet, it seems that any notion of moving forward is met with apprehension and opposition. today a friend and i went to the dome to shoot some hoops, as this was allowed in the past. we were very quickly and rudely kicked off, attached the quote of "you've got no reason for being here"..... isn't the wonderful game of basketball reason enough. With the popularity of the sport dwindling, shouldn't accessibility be a top priority. how can juniors get interested in the game when there is limited places to practice. If the dome was available wouldn't that assist in generating some excitement and enthusiasm, which is sorely needed.
I Understand that OH&S and insurance and so on plays a part. However, at wayville casual visitors sign in on a registry and give a gold coin donation. If a waiver is required to shoot then, would it make it possible? It seems tho that too much effort is required to implement such a system. For a stadium that goes atleast 50% unused this is poor form. Surely any improvement in basketball to the public is beneficial to the overall product.
