Manitoba Government tabs $15 million for Curling Performance Centre

Article from CBC.ca coming up but the sad fact is this is full of conditions and fund-raising - so not really a full cack of 15 million to a Curling Super Performance Centre.
But I do like the idea of tying the Curling Centre in with the Manitoba Rock 'n Roll (Music) Hall of Fame - which has also been kicked like the proverbial can forward cuz government doesn't want to kick in much money - and private individuals know it would be a veritable money-loser . . . ! ! !

I just read the article too. I can imagine the two disciplines - curling and music - being a good fit. Both offer a lot of pride to Manitobans. Both attract passionate broader audiences. I like that Dylan and Young have showed interest in the Manitoba Music Experience plans - ongoing for a decade. Neither could likely stand alone, but together it could be a great attraction. I hope some moneybags step up. RFI = request for information - should be "investors" probably. But 15million for speculation sounds pretty positive. No?

Think they're hoping Neil plugs in for at lease a million, perhaps convincing Dylan to put in 1/2 a mill; get Burton Cummings to ride in another 1/2 million, Big Bachman for 1/4 million (Randy is notoriously cheap) and then 1000 musically-savvy manitobans to chuck $1000 or $2000 ea. into the fray for another 1 or 2 million.
As for curlers - perhaps 500 avid/wealthy curlers can inject $1,000 to $2,000 each for another 1 or 2 million.
If all goes well - perhaps 7.5 million can be raised privately, maybe 1 or 2 million via Go Fund Me and the balance from federal & provincial govt. participation.

Maybe John Einarson could run the Go Fund Me as John is notoriously cheap, doesn't put his money where his mouth is.
