    The restrooms and concession stands are gone so you can see straight through to the stands.

    They've knocked out the bathrooms, they're digging into the hill and they've removed the top 10-20 rows of benchs on the west side, and completly destroyed the concrete where they were

    The structures that housed concession stands and restrooms that used to sit in front of the grandstands (from the view of these pics) are gone.

    No more potties - we're resorting to Hawk tactics of going on the side of buildings

    OK, inappropriate but it's a Friday and I'm in an odd mood.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Stadium Update *photos*

    Redrocker, what are they doing with all that dirt?? Are we going to make more space behind the stadium that is built up to that level?? It looks like lots of dirt on the north end in your bottom photo. Or am I seeing things?

    Not 100% sure. The new concession stands are big and will take up the area the 2 of the old ones did. Our part of the job will not start for a couple of month.

    Re: Stadium Update *photos*

    As I understand it they are supposed to be widening the concourse, which means the conession stands have to move farther back...

    In addition they're supposed to be bigger I think, so they'll come even further back. But thats just how I understand it.


    I'll try asking about the webcam at work today, they were putting one up, I'm just not sure why they haven't put it on the FP&M webpage yet

    I thought we were going to have a red brick facade around the west side of the stadium. Maybe that's what "redrocker" stands for.
