In the week Tasmania landed two more national sporting championships, three Launceston car parks were telling their own story.
In any normal week this would be newsworthy since, traditionally, car parks have been unable to speak.
But it was particularly telling as assorted sporting worlds collided - ironically at about the same time as a meteor lit up the skies.
On Thursday, Netball Australia announced that the Hobart Netball and Sports Centre will host next year's national junior championships.
The following day, representatives from BMX Australia and Launceston BMX Club declared that Launceston will host the 2020 national and Oceania championships.
In addition to offering an irresistible opportunity for a politician to look uncoordinated riding an under-sized bike in smart trousers, the two announcements continued the glut of major sporting events being snapped up by our state.
Footy carnivals from inclusion to School Sports Australia have graced our shores of late along with national champs as diverse as hockey, cricket and karate plus international cycling events from the roads of Railton to the trails of Derby.
The BMX titles alone provide a sound gauge of the monetary value of such events.
With crucial UCI ranking points on offer in the lead-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics just four months later, it is estimated that the week-long titles in March will attract 4000 people to Launceston generating $4 million in economic activity.
And it's not just national or even international events that keep Tassie on the map and money in the economy.
On Saturday, finding a car parking spot at either Churchill Park, Elphin Sports Centre or St Leonards Athletics Centre was about as easy as getting the Prime Minister to stop asking rhetorical questions.
Launceston's annual junior soccer tournament has become so big that it has outgrown the state's largest soccer venue. With their Churchill Park headquarters at maximum capacity, the Northern Tasmanian Junior Soccer Association utilised Faulkner Park to help stage an event which brought 1200 players plus their coaches, managers and doting parents into Launceston for three days.
Taking place simultaneously just across the sludgy waters of the North Esk, the state under-10 and under-11 basketball championships were being held at Elphin, a week after the under-16 and under-18 titles at the same venue.
In a rare sign of geographical appreciation by a state sporting body, Basketball Tasmania has decreed that state titles should be held in the middle of the state in order to minimise travel times for all rather than just those in the capital. A radical idea that appears to have some merit.
Meanwhile, back across the River Sludge, the Sports Association of Tasmanian Independent Schools athletics carnival was testing the parking capacity of St Leonards.
Event admin officer Barb McBride made the point that the cross-over of so many sports had resulted in many multi-talented athletes having to choose which one to dedicate themselves to.
Even the State League footy grand finals taking place at the opposite end of the state had deprived the athletics carnival of some competitors.
And all of this was going on while the Silverdome was becoming the latest Tasmanian venue to break four figures for the NBL Blitz thereby placing further demands on Launceston's sporting spectators.
All of these events serve two purposes: they provide a healthy reward for the participants and a financial reward for the host city.
Neither of which was lost on Grant MacDonald, the jovial president of the NTJSA, as he gazed out over nine grounds being enthusiastically churned up by a record 80 teams.
"We are so blessed with this facility," he said.
"Places like this breed good health and confidence in young people.
"Every city should have a Churchill Park. It's like a soccer incubator that keeps everyone healthy."
