New Boys and Girls Club Gym

Update on the Boys and Girls Club Gym:

Here are a few pics from Bob LeRoy of the new gym.  (Thanks Bob!)

The gym floor is essentially complete with lines painted, though there may be more work on the walls, etc.  The pickleball lines are green except where they coincide with volleyball (red) and basketball (black).  The clearance at one end (opposite the large glass doors) is only 5-6 feet beyond the end line, similar to the old gym now.

The first 3 pics are the finished lines and the fourth one is a view from the gym through the overhead doors of the soccer field with artificial surface.  The last 3 are pictures of the taping for the lines.

Looks like we might still be on track to play in the new facility beginning about the first of May.
