Tribute To The Barn

Happy Friday everyone!

Above is rendering of the interior of the Border Cities Arena, it was one of a few pictures from prior to the opening of the arena I dug up. I got an email from someone at Sportsnet who was working on a video tribute to the Barn, and asked if I could send copies of some of the old images that were on the site. I sent along a couple and told them use any that would fit. While the rendering above didn’t make it into the video, it’s still a neat shot.

The video was produced, and I’m not sure if it aired on the station, or only on the web, but the tribute was actually really well done, and a better look back at the Barn than anything done locally.

Below is the video, it’s worth watching, and a nice look at some local history.
