LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Why won’t the Giants’ trophy come to South Lake Tahoe?

Several months ago you published an article that would lead one to believe the San Francisco Giants were going to display the World Series trophy.

A lot of us have been watching the Giants’ Web page to find out when and where the trophy would be displayed or shown here at South Lake Tahoe. Their Web page for some time would always read “TBA.” Last week they finally showed a time and place where this event would take place. To our amazement it is going to be displayed at the Alpine Ski Resort next week. After discovering this, I called the Giants organization to have them give their reason for this and why it wouldn’t take place here at the South Shore of Tahoe. I was asked as to where they might display the trophy and I shared there are many casinos, or the recreation centers – places that would be easy for people to come and see the trophy. The person who would bring the trophy wasn’t really sure why we were being overlooked. We all could go to Alpine to view the trophy, which is an hour and a half ride, two miles off the road – not to mention gas costs and the limited parking because of the skiers.

This is a one and only chance for a lot of children and people to see the trophy.
