Well, to those following my career... I got confirmation yesterday that I have my arena audio department contract for the new building here.

Good show, Bren; they certainly made a sound decision.

Bren,
if you don't mind me asking, when will the new place be operational? I recalled hearing that the first hockey games would be in November sometime. Are they still on schedule? On a side-note are you taking in the Power Ball to send out the Arena in style? (maybe you can snaffu yourself some genuine stadium seeting for the ht). Sounds like it will be a decent concert, pretty solid collection of acts.

Congrats, Bren.

For those of us that care but don't follow closely enough to retain details, can you share more about the location and configuration of this glorious entertainment edifice?

So much for any shred of anonymity I would have had.

Yeah, that's the new place... my bunker's below ground level away from the great unwashed.

Sid - the whole sked's up there... everything's going to be on time (though I think they'll be driving the last screws just as I'm powering it up the first time) and no, I'm not going to the Power 8 Ball, Inward Eye would be the only band I'd want to see and since they end up opening for other shows I go to, it's kind of pointless... besides, lifetime, I've only been a paying customer at an arena gig twice (Iron Maiden - 88 - Somewhere in Time and Metallica - 93 - Black album).

You'll pay for the whole seat but you'll only use the edge.

Actually, last time it was through, it broke even I think... think it was 3 days, average of 2000 tix a day - we are NOT a Hot Wheels Motorsport-type city.

They don't even bother trucking in dirt for the shows here anymore (though they might put a bigger push on in the new building).

Bren, what is the technical basis for 15 women's washrooms but only 12 for men?

Spectacular. That looks like a truly beautiful facility.

It almost makes me want to do the previously unthinkable - travel to Winnipeg. Almost

Very inspiring. Thanks for sharing.

Don't tell me you've never seen how long the lines are for women's bathrooms compared to men's? Since #1 is done more often than #2, more simultaneous relieving activity can be done in men's bathrooms than in women's bathrooms. Urinals are a great thing.

I'll go with Peter's theory. They say there should be 1.5 women's facilities for every men's for an equal balance between the sexes - takes them longer to do their thing.

In fact when the BMO Figure Skating Championships were here, the crowd was so female heavy they resourced a lot of the mens rooms to ladies rooms, that was confusing...

It's like a toilet and bidet all in one if you wait long enough.

My scientific curiosity is now satisfied. Also, good one, Ron.
