Representatives of the Brainerd Lakes Area Chambers of Commerce's Air Transportation Task Force met recently with Jim Cron, Northwest Airlines vice president of market planning and airlink.
The purpose of the meeting was to discuss expanded air service in the Brainerd lakes area. Northwest likely will plan more direct, non-stop flights between Brainerd and Minneapolis. In addition, Northwest is considering extension of the seven flights per day peak schedule through October as well as considering additional weekend flights during the peak season.
What a concept!
First, Target Center attached its name to the Minneapolis sports center that is home to the Timberwolves. Now, the city of Grand Forks is considering a bid by First National Bank of North Dakota to be the naming sponsor for the Aurora Event Center.
First National Bank North Dakota would pay $3 million over the contract period of 20 years for the naming right.
To finish the Gold Medal Arena in Brainerd, could a Mills Center be far behind? How about Bremer Arena? Or, Universal Pensions Recreational Complex?
