The Lawrence Chamber of Commerce plans to honor Mark Mangino, Kansas University football coach, during a May 29 luncheon at the Lawrence Holidome, 200 McDonald Drive.

The luncheon, from noon to 1 p.m., will give chamber members an opportunity to celebrate the Jayhawks' Orange Bowl victory and also gear up for the upcoming fall season.

Cost is $20. To reserve a seat or for more information, call 865-4411 or visit

Sure hope they don't cancel this event. The Holidome will send the Chamber of Commerce a $6400 bill!I still don't see how the Holidome has escaped bad PR over charging the Athletic Department $6400 for cancelling. I doubt very seriously that Holiday Inn had spent tons of money already in preparation for the cancelled event.Do they really think the Athletic Department is going to book future events there with that sort of treatment? If I were the AD, Holiday Inn would be blacklisted. There are other places to have such events.
