    Could Wilf make use of the armory?

    The Minneapolis Armory has been searching for a useful purpose since the National Guard vacated the building in 1983. A hotel with an indoor golf course was once proposed. More recently it was opened for parking....

    Here's a pic of the armory. Could it be used as the Vikings HOF building or an indoor training facility?

    I remember watching the Lakers play at the Armory, but the way I remember it, they played most of their games at the Old Minneapolis Auditorium which was demolished about 1990 for the new Convention Center. I saw most of their games at the Auditorium. It was only their last two seasons they played at the Armory.

    Wow, old memories.


    Back in the day 1979-1981 I was a member of the 47th S&T Battalion in the MNARNG.
    Minnesota Corn Field commando all the way baby.

    Wonder how many poker games and cans of beer have been played/consumed in there?

    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
