Attendance at the Women's Worlds
Have you seen the attendance figures for the world's so far? You didn't really have to see the numbers to see that attendance must be pretty low. The venue is small and there aren't all that many people there.
My standard for comparison is the Scotties in Kitchener a few years ago and in London two years ago, and so it may not be a fair comparison. I haven't kept track of the attendance at previous women's world championships, but here are the numbers available so far as posted on Curlcast:
Draw 1 1156
Draw 2 1465
Draw 3 831
Draw 4 1342
Is there a problem with Vernon, BC? Would it be better to hold the world's in bigger markets?
Addendum: Be sure to read the comment for some good insight into these questions.
