It will be deflated within a week - I can guess there's a kid out there just itching to fire his Red Ryder.

divide 200000 by 40 then ask yourself might there be a better way to spend money. If your child uses it, you probably say 'no'.

Fairview has used a bubble on their pool for more than 10 years. Several high school and year around swim teams practice there. They also have open lanes for adults to swim laps, rent the space for parties, and host swim meets. It is vital to have space for swimmers o practice daily outside of summer months.

I think the people who donated money and participated int the fund raisers felt it was worth their money. Since it is their money it's not really up for debate as to your feelings about it.

I know an Olympic gold medalist that worked out in a domed pool during winter months. It too, was funded with private dollars.

I live near this dome and there was a news story done on how loud it is. They weren't kidding. I can tell you that, in January, it's still loud. One attempt was made at a noise barrier but the stewards of the pool have done nothing since. Living near it is pretty miserable now.

I think it is great. We started with something similar where I lived and it eventually led to an indoor/outdoor Rec Center. The majority of usage for the new facility during the week is aerobics, retirees and physical therapy. Swim teams use it after school in season and families/children use it recreationally on the weekends. It was a win - win for the entire community.

Either the snow will slide down the dome, or it will collapes and be blown up again. I was on AAU swim team in the 70s and we swam in a pool like that in the winter
