Doomed Business Proposal #698
It's going to be the single best outdoor recreational attraction in the Kansas City area- canoeing excursions on the Little Blue River. Let's call it Happy In Bag Boating (HIBB). Ideally, we'd start at this scenic spot at the Kansas City Zoo. After signing liability wavers, guests would hop into canoes or rowboats and paddle thirty minutes down the gentle stream with a HIBB guide. At the end of the journey- probably about three miles downstream- guests would disembark at a predetermined spot and be shuttled back to the zoo in a HIBB vehicle. They'd be charged ten dollars a head for the experience. HIBB's primary expenses would be insurance, a small fleet of boats, a couple of leased vans with boat racks on the roof, staffing and a marketing budget. We'd also need to work out some kind of arrangement with KCMO. Who's in?
