    Re: Veteran's Auditorium is renamed

    CCCUCC is quite an acronym. How about U4C or CU4?

    Is there enough room to put the name up?

    I'm not sure the headline on KCCI's site really needed an exclamation point, but whatever works.

    Wow, I don't know how they came up with something that bad without the assistance of the good people of Iowa Corn.

    Re: Veteran's Auditorium is renamed

    I don't like it... Vets will always be Vets to me. But then again, the inside is completely different and not the same as what it used to be.

    Re: Veteran's Auditorium is renamed

    The name is stupid but it is a good thing, it gave the veterans group $25k while they werent getting squat for it being named Vets auditorium.

    Re: Veteran's Auditorium is renamed

    I realize they wanted to have the entire name in there but why didn't they just rename it the Community Choice Convention Center or the 4 C's.

    I tried to pronounce it. All I got was a loogie.

    $2.5m over 10 year is a quarter million a year plus the $25,00 check.

    *Unless of course they get none of that 2.5m...which I guess is possible if the City of Des Moines keeps it or Polk County.

    That said, Vets still should have been shown a wrecking ball.

    FAIL....almost as big of a fail as the new CyHawk trophy was.

    That's what I would assume. The county sold the naming rights. Considering the original name, they had to do something for the Vets, hence the $25k.
