  • The Thermopolis-Hot Springs Chamber of Commerce Board has been in talks with the Recreation District and the Bobcat Booster Club regarding turning over the running of the annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament. The volunteer base needed to run the tournament has outstretched the availability of the chamber and the monies raised by the event have decreased significantly over the past few years due to the expense of using Hoop World to organize the tournament. Chamber Director Meri Ann Rush said she has been contacted by Hoop World regarding this year’s tournament, and they have informed her of their intent to increase the per-team cost by five dollars as well as bring in their own merchandise booth. Neither of those items will benefit Thermopolis or the chamber. The rec district has shown interest in taking the event over, but not until 2016, so the chamber feels this next spring would be a good time to work through the tournament with the rec district to “show them the ropes” and make the transition to their fully taking over much smoother.
