The ARPA and ASA officials are looking forward to being here again in the future. I had been worried that the costs of putting on the tournament would out-weigh the game day revenues it produced, but our initial figures show that we’ll come out ahead, and I am really looking forward to seeing what kind of up-tick we had through sales tax collections.”
