On Thursday, January 21st, 2016, Patrick Mader spoke to the rotarians about his book “Minnesota Gold.” Minnesota has over 300 living Olympians and Mader had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing 57. He interviewed athletes from a variety of 20 sports and who competed in Olympics over 50 years apart. The most experienced Olympian he interviewed was Ruben Bjorkman, 86, who competed in the 1948 Olympics on the men’s hockey team. Madera also interviewed Jim Mastro. Mastro lost full vision at a young age but was able to place third in the able-bodied Olympic trials in wrestling.
On Thursday, December 10th, 2015, Michele Kelm-Helgen, who is on the chair of the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority, spoke to the Rotary Club about the US Bank Stadium project. The new stadium will be one of the most adaptable stadiums in the country hosting a wide range of major sporting events including the Superbowl in 2018 and the NCAA Mens Basketball Final four in 2019. US Bank Stadium will be a architectural marvel. It is nearly twice the size of the Metrodome with the same amount of seats, and will have a transparent roof to give the feel of an outside stadium in a temperature controlled area. This project helped ignite economic advancement in the surrounding area costing over $1 billion. Around 90% of the construction cost is covered by Minnesota businesses.
