Well the AirBnB we were renting is basically gown.  Have to think there is some hotels damaged too?

Any chance the tourney gets moved/cancelled?

I reached out to Broeker to ask. Maybe the Al could host.
When asked how he felt about Marquette being picked to finish ninth in the Big East, Tyler Kolek only had two words:
.
"F**k 'em."

Y'all are assuming there is going to still be a functional arena in Ft Myers at Thanksgiving.

Dano—were you on the beach? Lower floor?
I have upper floor of condo on the beach but no word as of yet.
Any idea if the campus/court was spared? Can’t imagine it was.

Campus was definitely not spared.  That being said I think the biggest problem will the lodging and not the arena itself.

My apologies for the confusion. The owner reached out to us for the place we were renting in Fort Myers Beach over Thanksgiving week and told us there is nothing left.

We are safe and sound in the midwest.

I just did a quick check on Marriott properties for this week. Only two available out of almost a dozen. I assume that most unavailable is due to them being damaged.
The arena itself appears to be fine, but like you said, I think it would be the lodging that is an issue. I suspect this gets canceled or moved.

Seems to me it would be difficult to move it based on availability at other venues for the duration of the event.

I would think it would need to be an on-campus facility of one of the participants.  Like Georgia Tech.

While that makes sense, given the home court advantage, I wonder if they look at a third party on-campus facility like USF or UCF.

BTW, after a bit of further thought, even if hotels are habitable, they will likely be taken up by work crews and not sure the area would want tourists this soon.  The infrastructure (hotels, restaurants, etc.) probably will be strained.

A good alternative might be moving the tournament to Orlando (ESPN). The Orlando Invitational doesn't start until the 24th so the Mon/Wed schedule for the Ft. Myers could work out...(unless they have a different event their those days of course)

Games are broadcast of FS1, so doubt ESPN opens their doors.

Some good news about Captiva. From the owners of 4 resorts, including the fabled Tween Waters Inn:

Dear Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts friends and fans,

On behalf of all of our team members, we sincerely appreciate the outpouring of love and support we’ve received over the past several days. Thankfully, everyone is safe, secure and accounted for. To best monitor our resorts, my wife, Paige, and I remained on island during the storm. And thanks to our first responders, we were airlifted off via helicopter on Friday afternoon, while Tony and Angie Lapi were evacuated the day prior.

It’s hard to fathom what’s unfolded over the past days, and unimaginable how something so calm and beautiful can become so angry and destructive. During my time on island after the storm, I was able to tour our four properties by bike to witness the devastation firsthand. 

Castaways and Beachview are now memories, for the most part, with many cottages completely gone. On the brighter side, ‘Tween Waters Island Resort & Spa and West Wind Island Resort are remarkably in good shape. With water, power and access to the islands, we could open in a few days; unfortunately, we know the infrastructure rebuilding process will take months.

Rest assured that Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts is ready and committed to rebuilding all of our four beach properties into a renewed, reimagined, reenergized form of themselves.

I’m amazed at the resiliency of our team. Many have experienced damage to their own homes and vehicles but continue to reach out to me to ask how they can help. The love and support from all of you and our team members are what makes Sanibel Captiva Beach Resorts so special.

We’ll do our best to keep everyone updated on social media and email updates as we work through this process. This will take time, and we’ll have setbacks along the way, but we’ll succeed. We’ll evolve. Please continue to send your love and support; it’s what fuels our passion to serve and satisfy you. Thank you all.

Sincerely, Doug Babcock, Chief Executive Officer and Island Lover
