Lake Placid might be the most remote place in the East Coast to hold an event.I believe the economy is the issue to some extent. Any word on sales for Lake Placid in 2009? Accessibility may be an added factor in attracting fans. From what I hear, no airport nearby - could mean a problem of added expense ie. car rental to get there.
Those who want to go badly enough will find a way. And the beat goes on!
Its historic and has lot of history, but it is really difficult to get there. plane or by car.
I have a feeling there won't be attendance record at 09 SA.
