Why lose the NZ Sports Hall of Fame?

My personal view for many years now is that all our publicly-funded Museums, the Chinese Garden and the Art Gallery should all be run and efficiently marketed as an integrated group of Dunedin attractions and facilities preferably with a single director and management.

The NZ Sports Hall of Fame should be fully DCC funded as part of this more cost-effectively organised group of Dunedin attractions especially given its relatively low cost and high interest for the general public as well as for sports people and organisations. The extraordinary efforts of Ron Palenski and family in keeping the NZ Sports Hall operational have been taken for granted for too long and we need to own this public-good facility, perhaps by integrating it with a Museum, and not let it be lost unnecessarily as we did with the Fortune Theatre.
