    Our View -- Vikings camp injects life

    [size=13pt]Our View -- Vikings camp injects life[/size]



    The Free Press

    Published July 28, 2007 04:27 pm - The presence of the Minnesota Vikings training camp remains a plus for the Mankato community.


    That several other bigger cities made serious bids for the Vikings training camp over the last few years should be a reminder to the Mankato community and businesses that Vikings training camp is still a pretty big deal...

    The eateries, and small shops in Mankato reap the benefits annually when Viking training camp starts. It's a win, win situation for the team and the community as the revenue generated will keep a smaller community thriving while providing a first rate practice facility.

    Now if we could just get the business owners in the downtown area to understand that, maybe they would get behind the Wilfs and get things going for a new stadium.

    I bet they will be the first ones to beeeyatch if/when the Vikes leave because a deal couldn't get done.
