If there's competition out there let us know what it has.
We can modify things -- to work around things but you know we have the infrastructure we have the cruise.
Not so what makes a big difference when you come here.
You don't have to bring as many people from outside the state -- resident here we are probably 3000.
And direct employees another 3000 of them -- actual.
You know we compete we can compete with anybody.
What kind of -- is the local economy get -- when you have a production and a sizable production in some cases on -- coming to the community how big is it for the local businesses.

Way to use your biggest competition I I mean I think New Mexico I'm thinking of Weston musicals long range of makes sense that.
What -- who's the biggest competition for you.
I think Louisiana.
Prison where we see a lot.
Louisiana and Atlanta.
We are little more flexible work there -- concern of Louisiana offers a little bit larger.
