    forced changes to the practice schedules for California and Hawaii just two days
    away from their college football season-opener at the Olympic stadium.Both teams
    were scheduled to hold open practice sessions at the stadium in western Sydney
    on Thursday, but falls of up 50 to 100 millimeters of rain (one to two inches)
    late Wednesday and overnight forced organizers to keep the players off the
    turf.Hawaii was given a chance to practice at the University of New South Wales
    but because it was about an hour away toward the city and into busy traffic,
    decided to cancel their practice session and did a walk-through later in the day
    in preparation for Saturdays game.

    evaluating the economic impact of a particular event in a region or area. "The
    City of Toronto scored an economic touchdown with the 100th Grey Cup Festival,"

    employment benefits for our city and its people." Commented Toronto Argonauts
    and 100th Grey Cup Festival Executive Chairman & CEO, Chris Rudge,"We are
    very pleased with the results produced by this assessment. The Festival was an
    important celebration of sport and culture for our city, province and country,
    and this evaluation demonstrates the positive, far-reaching financial impact it
    had on all of us. The people of Toronto opened their arms to the nation and were
    rewarded with a tremendous infusion of economic spending that also resulted in
    job creation and millions of dollars in municipal and provincial tax revenue. We
    look forward to hosting the Grey Cup festival and game again soon." The economic
    impact results were derived from surveys taken during the 100th Grey Cup
