U.S. Olympic Committee Executive Board to Hold Fall Meeting in Okc


Ray, Tim, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The governing bodies of 37 different championship sports will have a chance to scrutinize Oklahoma City firsthand when the 90-member U.S. Olympic Committee's executive board holds its 1987 fall meeting in the city Oct. 24-25.

Don Porter, executive director of the Amateur Softball Association and a member of the Olympic committee's executive board, announced during a press conference Friday at the National Softball Hall of Fame that the board would be holding its fall meeting in Oklahoma City.

Representatives of such national multi-sports organizations such as the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, the Amateur Athletic Union and the Young Men's Christian Association also will be in attendance.

Porter said said the importance of the meeting to Oklahoma City would be that the city would have a chance to make a favorable impression on the executive board members and possibly attract other championship events - and their anticipated revenue - to Oklahoma City.

"Thirty-seven sports governing bodies will be here (for the executive board meeting)," Porter said. "They control where national championship and international championship events will be held. When you can bring in national championships, you bring in millions of dollars, and that often multiplies into future events."

Oklahoma City will host the U.S. Olympic Festival in 1989. Lee Allan Smith, chairman of the Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce, said the Olympic Festival will provide Oklahoma City with an even greater opportunity to make an impression not only on the sports governing bodies but also on the entire country through the media that will be in Oklahoma City at that time. …
