Its rather obvious now that ADMB latched onto the idea of creating a single competition field for both lacrosse and soccer based on what BC did. These sport-specific Astroturf fields are used by Pitt, and Stanford, among others. www.astroturf.com/synthetic-turf-products/ligaturf-series-turf-soccer-field/ _________ Back to the rink. IMO, a hard decision on the rink is probably 3-5 years down the road.
First, ADMB is packaging $7-10M of new construction on top of the hill: new softball field; reconstructed soccer field with artificial turf, and doubling the seating; new restrooms; new concession stand; new press box; relocating sites of the field events; videoboard Probably to be staggered over two years. Nothing done on the rink until this is completed.
Second, the new Jesuit residence, assuming this is on Avon or Kendig. This will be built in the next 2-3 years. ADMB will want to ensure that the road next to the rink can be slid to the west and not interfere with the new residence.
Third, architects and consulting engineers study the rink in the next 1-2 years, and present options.
Fourth, need to replace the rug on Fr. K field in the next 3-5 years. Don't know how long it will be before the field hockey field rug and the track will need to be replaced.
