ROLLER HOCKEY EXPANSION FEES REPORTEDLY HIT $1 MILLION

     Nohl Rahn, one of the owners of the Artic Blast (MN's roller
hockey team), said after returning from a Roller Hockey
International league meeting, that the cost of franchise has
increased from the $125,000 that the MN group paid to $1M now.
Rahn on future expansion: "New York and Detroit could join the
league next season.  Right now the roller-skating industry is
selling more equipment than hockey" (Sid Hartman, Minneapolis STAR
TRIBUNE, 10/25).
