WOW!  That looks so strange.  So many great years in those stands!

Looks like they're going to town now though.



Ah looky...I'm a newby again!

I'm reborn!!!!!!!!!   So strange seeing the photos of the stadium being torn down.  Can't wait to see the new stuff though.

Here are some photos I took Saturday.  They are not as good as the ones the district takes, but at least we have some additional photos.  I'll try to get more next weekend.

Anyone know why they are taking the light poles down?  Thought they were going to keep the lights as is.

It's strange to see the home side leveled but what goes back up will be much, much better.  ;D

I was also curious about why the scoreboard needed to come down.  Is it necessary for the turf to go in, or might we have a nice surprise in the fall?

I would guess the ground will need to be leveled, drainage installed, and the turf base built up.  Also probably protects the board from damage.  Also electrical lines etc may need to be re-run.

Beaumont ISD school board just approved usng SHW to build their Football stadium and natatorium.  We'll have something to compare by.  I wonder if SHW learned their lesson.

It's my understanding that the scoreboard was to be moved to the oposit side of the field (and added to), thus the reason to take down.  I hope not.  That  would mean that the end zone seats would have to go.  I think they should stay.

They're getting rid of the endzone seats and, guessing by the plans, placing the scoreboard just outside the track in the north end zone.  I've always liked the end zone seats.  It added some distinction to the stadium.

This is the scoreboard that currently exists: http://www.fair-play.com/gallery/install_detail.php?id=433

Welcome back!

Near perfect weather has the stadium playable for district, and completed in October.  We are hearing rumors that the district is investigating an all-away season.

Yeah, I have been watching the tear down too.  I'm just wondering if we have one or two of our week long rains or God forbid another hurricane that the construction will get behind.  Also, ask anyone who has built a house, if the contractors are waiting for anything, they will send thier guys to another site.  An all-away season, is probably the best plan.

Indian fan, you got that right.  ;D

** RUMOR CONTROL...... This may only be a rumor **

Someone mentioned to me that a representative from PNISD was attempting to work out a deal with NISD for PNG to play their home games at Nederland's stadium when the bulldogs are playing away games. 

There was also mention of PN-G playing Saturday home games at Nederland Bulldog stadium. This would only be in case the new PNG stadium experiences delays and the completion runs into the football season.

Anyone else hear anything????
