Its good to see that this project is moving forward. Still trying to figure out where it will be located. Was down there over the weekend and didn't see anything but the Launch Zone.

Maybe plans have changed but I was under the impression that they were going to have a temporary site at the National Harbor in that huge dome. This is just bad journalism. You would think they would do the research to at least get a better description of the location at least.

Definitely. The way it is written makes it seem like more. I hope they are not going to have in a tent. Even if temperature controlled that would not be appealing. Especially at 10 dollars a pop. I am still waiting on an announcement about Tanger. I thought there would have been a write up about the district council meeting but I only saw an article on the moment to reconsider expanding oxon hill road.

Yeah sounds like that is the dome site that is across from one of the parking lots. Sounds good, I may have to take my children down there.
