    Sac Bee claims Day 4 (yesterday) had 10,400 spectators. Can anyone verify?

    The NCAA meet SHOULD have a permanent site and it should be EUGENE.

    Sacramento Bee article on its bid to be the semi-permanent site. Seems like it has a shot. Attendance figures thus far, based on newspaper reports:

    Day 1- 5,500e
    Day 2 - 7,100e
    Day 3 - 8,900e

    Sacramento is unique, but when was the last time NCAAs had these crowds? Not even Eugene '01 matched it. I'd rather see it in Sacramento than in Los Angeles metro. The meet would get lost in Tinseltown, way too much stuff to do there. Eugene could work, except its weather is the iffiest of the bunch & flight connections suck.

    He was in the stands last night in Sacramento.

    An MC-88 is an old Royal typewriter that only had caps. No lower case. Used in the military prior to computers. Some guys told their non-military friends that they flew MC-88s when all they did was type. (That was many moons ago.)Oh well...
    DOES anyone know whatever happened to Obea Moore?
    RAP out.

    For the sake of the fans, one can only hope that Sacramento has no chance of getting this meet again, much less three more times. There isn't a more uncomfortable stadium in the country and the signt lines are absolutely terrible. If the NCAA knows what it is doing (and they frequently show that they do not), they will choose Eugene if they put it anywhere on a semi-permanent basis.

    That's how it should be set up. Not sure if I want to see a truly permanent site, I like that NCAAs alternates locations. However, it should stay in a place for 3-5 years to build up a spectator base.

    Isn't Austin bidding for it as well? Texans?

    I give up; what's an MC-88? A Google search turns up a light meter as the first option; can't imagine you keystroking on one of those too much. Sounds more like something the NRA doesn't want banned.

    it's "permanent" in that they're going to experiment with an initial contract of something like 3 years, see how it plays out.

    From what I've heard, the 3-meet deal is a go. It's between Sacto, Eugene and Carson (Home Depot Center).
