Neptune Florida Yacht Club
Many people used to attend concerts at the Marine Stadium by boat and moor their boats near the floating stage. The presence of dozens of boats added even more to the unique environment.

We've encountered lots of enthusiasm for the Stadium from boat owners who had attended events at the Stadium. Attached is a letter from the Neptune Florida Yacht Club-like many boaters, they remember the remarkable environment at the Marine Stadium and want to return.

Soula Booking-Lizzie Easton
Here's more evidence that there will be a strong demand for the Marine Stadium by concert promoters. It is ironic that although some have considered the Stadium a "white elephant", we have been told repeatedly by promoters that changing economic realities in the entertainment industry are now perfectly attuned to the Marine Stadium. With 6,500 seats, the Stadium is a mid-sized arena, the most desirable size. 1,000-2,000 seat venues are too small; only a few artists can fill larger facilities (ie. 18,000 seat arenas).

Attached is a letter from Brian Wishneff Associates, the largest syndicator of historic tax credits for governmental and not for profit entities in the United States. 18% of restoration costs can be financed through the sale of tax credits, and there are other opportunities including naming rights. You can find out more about this group by going to their website www.wishneff.com
