    BB Practice Facility

    Anyone know when the puiblic will be able to take a look inside? We'll be down for the Army game and would like to check it out.

    Re: BB Practice Facility

    i got a mailer inviting the NCC members to check it out on homecoming weekend (10/17) for the dedication, etc. I think that is the first time they are allowing the public in. I could be wrong though.

    Re: BB Practice Facility

    I got a tour about a week ago and it looks great.

    The floors on both courts are not finished and won't be until the first part of October, so I doubt there will be any open house until the floors are done.

    This isn't the first time I've heard of Cyclone Club communications getting to someone else way ahead of me. I'm starting to wonder if they mail those out by rank like every other benefit.

    I'd love to see the place -- all I hear are great comments about it.

    Re: BB Practice Facility

    I can't speak for the interior, but after all the architect types complaining about how ugly the design was I think it looks good from the outside. Well landscaped, irrigated. Looks like a basketball practice facility should in my opinion.


    "Blamo"! The new CF approved swear word.

    No prob. It's just that I donate a few bucks to the program, so I DEMAND to be treated special.

    Not sure, I just figured that they would gut it and make it a big room for fans to hangout before and after the game.

    Not positive, just know that when I stopped in and talked to a few of the basketball coaches this summer, volleyball coaches were already in a few of the offices

    2 team rooms, 8 offices, kitchenette, lobby(trophies), plus both secretary's desks....Seems like a lot for just volleyball. Maybe wrestling too?
