Nah, you're just being paranoid!

The Branson administration wouldn't let that happen... would they?

Yep, why do you think I included that statement? Thought all of the investors were already lined up.

Phase one of the project, estimated to cost $15 million, will include the outfitting of the existing buildings on site for team dormitories, retail and the addition of six replica fields of famous baseball parks
I thought this project was supposed to bring more guests to existing Branson hotels. Not add it's own a accommodations. Bet there's going to be restaurants in those retail spaces as well.
A fully self sufficient comples where kids come to play ball, stay, and eat, and shop without ever having to bother with anything else in Branson.

Yeah, you see... they won't HAVE to bother... but according to the projections used to swing this deal, they WILL bother.

They aren't putting in a hotel, they are putting in dorms for the teams to stay in. The parents and friends with them will still be renting a hotel room to stay in.

Or the manager, and a couple coaches will arrive with a bus full of kids that will be staying in the dorms.

What parent would not attend a tournament their child was playing in? A damn lousy parent. I think most are better than that.

I attended every football game my son ever played in, even though he was a lousy player and spent most of the game riding the bench. I also attended every marching band competition my daughter participated in, even though they tended to bore the heck out of me. I don't claim to be a great parent because I wasn't. But there are some things you just do.

If someone would donate money to build a building that holds 6 or 8 basketball courts, you would fine many weekends that are very busy. For reference see Play It Again Gym in Wisconsin Dells.

Actually with today's youth being the spawn of "the me generation", a lot more than you think! Unfortunatly.

Sadly, you may be right on that. I don't understand it at all. I was not a "natural" parent. It was always more of a struggle for me than a joy. But there are certain things parents just "owe" their kids, and I always pay my debts... whether I particularly enjoy it or not.

It was never my "duty" to raise my son and daughter, but my pleasure. Any and all sacrifices I made were well worth it.

Any sacrifices I made were well worth it. I spent $100,000 from my savings to send my daughter to college. I would do it again without hesitation. But I just wasn't that comfortable being a parent. I always felt I was lacking, and it bothered me. My late wife was wonderful at it... it came natural to her. Although I loved my parents, they were lousy at it. I just never learned how.

Thumbs up Parenting

Sometimes I guess that we all doubt ourselves as parents. I remarked to my youngest daughter a few days ago: " Sometimes I feel as though I have failed you girls as a dad." My daughter quickly responded, "Dad, you have ALWAYS been a good dad, and a good grandfather too. She is one of two official reliable sources.
