Event Review: Rolla, Missouri
28 Feb, 2011By: Sports Destination Management Team
Centrally located in the state of Missouri, with access to many major roadways, Rolla is the easiest community to access no matter the location of your participants. They will all find that Rolla is easy to access and fun to explore.
Rolla is a vibrant community offering residents and visitors a peek into the past with an eye towards the future. The city has strong ties to the Civil War, a rich train history, Route 66 heritage and strong Town and Gown relationship with Missouri S&T. With cutting-edge research, business and industrial development, and unique dining venues, all the amenities of a big city are offered in a friendly hometown environment. Located in the Ozarks at the intersection of I-44 and Highway 63, Rolla is one of the most unique, balanced and livable communities in Missouri.
And best of all, Rolla is "Engineered for Sports!" It's a great place to train and compete, and an ideal location for sporting events, activities and competitions.
The amenities available within the community are matched by the enthusiasm and hospitality displayed by the residents. With over 300 acres of park land, 50,000 square feet of gymnasium space, and ample meeting rooms, space is available for a number of high quality sporting events.
"Above and beyond" is the type of service you will receive from the Rolla Sports Alliance. The enthusiasm of this team will amaze you as they work with you to meet the needs of your event. From providing event specific discount flyers to televising your event, this group of dedicated citizens will make sure your event is successful and all of your participants leave counting the days until the next event.
Another positive attribute to the Rolla community is the grants that are offered through the Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce (RACC). The RACC works with groups that are interested in coming to the area by providing financial assistance for specific aspects of your event. Their friendly and courteous staff will work with you to assure the best experience possible in our community. They also notify the business community to make them aware of your event and ensure that your participants are welcomed, and at times, they will even offer your participants special discounts.
