News 2 Barter Agreement With Greensboro Coliseum
The Greensboro Coliseum has barter agreements with some local companies and with the last Greensboro City Council meeting on 7-20-2010 they were funding a new facility called the VIP Room. It was pointed out on another post at TRIADWATCH CLICKHERE about questions for Coliseum Director Matt Brown in regards to bartering services and construction jobs at the coliseum . This post and other post in the coming days will show you what we received in a open records request under North Carolina state law inquiry into the barter agreements at the Greensboro Coliseum.
The first local company is WFMY News 2 which had one of the simple barter agreements as you can see above in a scribd version of the agreement. It looks like they pay for 2 Carlyle Club tickets for $5,000 cash then they trade for the other 2 tickets for a total aggreement of $10,000 with a 3 year deal that ended on 7-31-10. The letter from News 2 business manager Laura Smith states "The trade being provided by WFMY in exchange for 2 Carlyle Club memberships is for advertising with WFMY".
If you would like to see what the Carlyle Club looks like CLICKHERE , here is a brief description of what the Carlyle Club offers but it might just be called 'The Club" without Carlyle for the future.
