Finally today we had a meeting with the contractors and BCP onsite at KP. We had a tour around and I must say the facilities look truly superb.
Whilst the work is virtually complete, there remain a few snags (top soil and grass seeding mainly) that need to be resolved before final handover to BCP next Wed (7th).
There will be ‘cordoned off’ areas when you return to protect the new grass seed etc, so please can you keep your training groups and athletes off these areas until well established. The infield particularly will be out of bounds initially, and therefore the outside throws area* will only be ready and available for throws practice (until the 17th at the earliest).
Therefore BCP are happy for us to resume BAC training as of;
SATURDAY JULY 10TH
OPEN (TO BAC ONLY): TRACK/JUMPS/OUTSIDE THROWS AREA*/GYM/OFFICE
SATURDAY JULY 17TH First Competition Event YDL LAG
OPEN: INSIDE THROWS AREA/GRANDSTAND
SATURDAY JULY 24TH RELAUNCH EVENT
SUNDAY JULY 25TH REOPEN FACILITY TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC
The near 6 month wait has been frustrating for all our coaching groups as well as our athletes, but I hope you’ll agree with me that the wait will finally be worth it!
A brand new improved track facility for us all to be proud of for future generations to come.
See you all back there soon
