Thank You for doing just that "Knrstz" and that Arena In Wichita Is
A BEAU , and by the way how can Wichita pull in so many great acts.
To answer your question I think it has to do with how remote Kansas is. Tulsa competes with OKC, Springfield, NWA, Fort Smith, etc. There's just not much in Kansas. Wichita pulls people from Hutchinson, Salina, Mchphereson, Dodge City, Garden City, Hays and well as some of eastern Kansas that doesn't go to Tulsa or KC. There is easily another 150-200k people that don't have anywhere else to go.

That sounds just about right , but I thought that Wichita would have to compete against Topeka Kansas , how many Big Name Acts are Topeka Kansas pulling in.

I would love to move back simply to be around my FAMILY , but
I have too many loose ends at the moment...looking forward to
getting my hand on some land (like 40 acres and a mule) something
that I could never do in "Caliphoney The Golden State".....

I have to say that there are postivies and negatives to each city. Not either one of them suck like some people have said in this thread. If they truly sucked that bad, neither one of them would be growing like they are now. Obviously things should continue to improve and get better over time. I love Wichita for the fact it is so easy to get around practically any part of the city and not deal with so much major traffic like other cities. I do wish Wichita had a much bigger downtown and skyline though. That's one thing I do give big props on to Tulsa. I really like Tulsa's skyline and its hilly and woody region. I will have to say though that Wichita has one heck of a zoo and the new exhibits they keep adding and what they've got planned later on down the road is simply amazing. IMO, it is one of the top zoos in the midwest. Tulsa has some much better shopping areas then Wichita and a pretty cool restaurant scene. There's so much to like and enjoy about each city.

The stores that became Circle-K and later Staxxx before closing were U-Tote-M stores, not 7-11 stores.

Also, about Saks, there is a Saks in Tulsa, and no Atwoods stores in the city itself, so what are you talking about there?

Atwoods are in surrounding towns of Tulsa. For some reason I thought I saw a couple in town. Maybe I'm thinking of Ace.
