Farewell Dome!

On September 24, the Hoosier RCA Dome will be deflated and readied for demo/conversion into the expanded Convention Center. It's been part of the Indy Skyline for much of my life (since 1984). Gonna look weird without it.

Your blog has been included in our guide Around The World.

The guide is both a record of old blogs and a listing of new blogs. Although originally arising from the CDPB lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog qualifies for nor is officially a CDPB. Our criteria are that photographs mainly from a specific geographical location (not necessarily a "city" but usually more specific than a whole country or region) are posted at dated intervals (not necessarily daily) and archives are readily searchable by date.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

I will always think of the RCA Dome as the Hoosier Dome. Hell, I even call Lucas Stadium the New Hoosier Dome. That's where the Baltimore Colts play, right?

Does anyone actually call it the RCA Dome? The experience here in Australia tells me that people keep going with the old name regardless. Even more so when the stadium seems to change name every five years!

This is even more likely given that even I am familiar with the Hoosier Dome from this far away!

In 1984 I went to a job fair there and got my first after college job. It's the only time I've ever been there.

Now I'm in AZ.

You'll probably get used to the new convention center before you know it and forget what it previously looked like! Or am I the only one who does that? :)
