Re the June 28 article about the Civic Center's attendance:
When configured as an ice rink, the arena has a seating capacity of 6,549, not 8,000 as shown on your table.
The Augusta Lynx Hockey Club averaged 5,443 in attendance for the 35 regular season home games, a whopping 83 percent of capacity!
The monetary losses incurred by the Civic Center would be much higher had the Lynx not come to Augusta.
Sounds like a good reason to ensure that the Lynx are happy tenants.
