This is a great event. I went to it when it was in Ames, IA. The athletes had a great experience. Lawrence would benefit greatly from this event.

That would be incredible! And we have a local man here in Lawrence that wins some of the events in weightlifting, and is a special guy with wonderful parents. Yes it is Brady Tanner!

This would be a great event to host!! Don't worry about the "no" votes, they don't even know why they are voting against it.

Wow, why so many no's? This would bring some good income to our town, and it's a great event. Yes, you would have to put up with more traffic, but it would be worth it.
