I remember reading that the organizers planned to have parking on Evergreen Lake, which they assumed would be frozen solid enough. Many car owners would probably have found their cars at the bottom of the lake had this been implemented. This was typical of the overly-optimistic assumptions--logisical and financial--made in the planning of the games and Colorado voters used common sense in declining the "opportunity" of hosting them.

Thanks for sharing, Jude!

I voted against the '76 Olympics for many of the reasons stated above. I was a young voter, and I thought it was so important that the citizens got the chance to have their say. I hope we do this time as well.
