Re: KC Curling Club

This has slowed to a crawl with Covid but here is the most recent update: Although we have experienced some delays due to COVID and other circumstances, it is still our plan to move forward with the dedicated ice facility in Blue Springs. The owner of our future facility contacted the building commi...

Re: Missouri Amtrak Service

Do we know when the new cars will be in service? I've got a few upcoming rides on the River Runner this Spring and Summer and wondering if there's a chance I will see them.

Re: Best Local Trails

The wife and I have enjoyed the Little Blue Trace Trail quite a bit. It's very conveniently located for us and long enough we can choose different sections to shake things up a little bit.

KC Curling Club

The KC Curling Club has announced plans to have a dedicated curling facility open by September. New facility will be in Blue Springs, just off the Woods Chapel Rd exit. They have been playing at the Line Creek Ice Arena up north for several years. https://kccurling.com/dedicated-ice https://kccurlin...

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I have normal level xfinity internet, and have not experienced any real problems with YoutubeTV in the year I have had it. I did previously have problems with stuttering when I would Cast from say the FoxSports app, or NBC app to my Google ChromeCast but those have seemingly disappeared as well.

Yes. 2 trains a day would be great but I dont think it would look like SW chief. It would be more like the River Runner
I still think that's definitely preferable over driving or plane.

Re: Missouri Amtrak Service

Some friends and I took the Southwest Chief to Chicago a few weeks ago for a conference. We are all semi-frequent users of the River Runner, but had never used the Chicago service yet. I have to say, we all agreed afterwards that it was by far the most enjoyable way to get to Chicago. None of the st...

Re: World Cup 2026 at Arrowhead?

I recently heard something along the lines of "economic impact on host cities is in the billions". Is this true? Probably for all host cities in aggregate. Certainly not for a single host city. It isn't a local team (unless the USA draws your city), so you could potentially have 40 to 60k or more p...

7 of the 30 AHL teams currently play in arenas with a capacity of 15,000 or more. So, Sprint Center is a reasonable location.

I took the Mavericks statement as meaning they would not be the AHL team. Not that there wouldn't be an AHL team, it would just be a different team than the Mavericks.
