    2016 Olympics in MN?

    Ely, MN 2016

    Wasn't really sure what forum was appropriate for this but I think this group should win the prize of the day. (Well actually the prize of yesterday.)

    Not going to happen, no population. Even if it is winter Olympics, it is still to far from the twin cities. Definitely not going to happen for the summer Olympics, Ames has a better chance.

    Not a bad idea, Olympics in Ames- talk about new facilities

    Never happen. I love Ely and have been there multiple times, but the infrastructure there is not even close to supporting an event like this. No major airport and they would have to build a large hill for the ski events.

    I saw a group on facebook that is seriously trying to get the 2020 Olympics in Minneapolis. They admited on the site that the only chance MSP has to getting them is if Chicago doesnt get 2016 Olympics
