Description   EN   

It's called Bojangles Colisieum now but it was once the largest domed arena when it opened in 1955 and called the Charlote Colisieum.  The locals called it the Chrome dome with its gleaming metal dome.  I attended many events here including rock concerts in my youth and thegraduations of my sons.

 

A grand structure that I hope lives on for many years to come.

 

For credit in claiming this cache take a phot including your GPS and any identifiable portion of the structure

1 01 December 2017 GoinPostNet Found it

Thought I'd make this find on my way into the Checkers game tonight since for some reason I haven't "found" this virtual yet. Couldn't get my gps in the picture since I was using it as the camera so I held up my geocaching license instead. TFTV

## ** After a dentist appointment on a rainy day, I seemed to be in a virtual and Independence mood, so I went after The Chrome Dome and headed down Independence Ave finding virtuals....** ##

In hopes of gaining a point in the current GCGC Geostalker Relay I ventured out and took the obligitory photograph. It was difficult holding the phone with the same hand that took the picuture while holding the GPSr within the frame.

I made my way inside the chrome dome tonight to see the Checkers play!

Thanks for the virtual, TH!

I will try and attach a pic, however with the resolution restrictions of the OCNA site, it is a bit of a pain...

This find gives me another LOTTO number for the GCGC contest!

Found this cache for the GCGC relay.  Could not post a pic with my GPS, because it's also my camera.  TFTF!

Can't figure out how to add a photo...
