Default Repurpose the Coliseum

Okay, I know it would never fly in Canada...but wouldn't the Coliseum bldg make a great indoor trap/skeet facility. They have them in Europe...why not here.

Probably the only way to be cost effective would be to charge $150 per round.

5 stand on either end and a half dozen single trap on each side.

Wonder if they could keep their liquor licence?

Would be more shots on target in a minute than the Oilers in a season.

They should turn it into a safe injection site. They could call it Hotel Edfornia.
