Indoor Turf Possibility

The Parks & Recreation Director and the School’s Athletic Director continue to work on the indoor turf possibility for WABA.  As of 10:30am this morning, it looks like the purchase of the product from Leverone Field House at Dartmouth is coming together.  Several confirmed donations have come forward through the Athletic Department to purchase the turf.  They are working on details related to off season storage and connecting with Dartmouth who would be available to assist with installation.  Also working with Skip Weinbel from Weinbel Sports Surfaces to assist with custom fitting for the WABA. You might start hearing some chatter about it and wanted you to be aware that it is highly probable that this will become a reality.  We still have to work on off season storage, timelines for installation and usage, yearly maintenance costs (not a major concern but possible during installation each year) programming opportunities and how we would manage the facility and potential costs.
