Eastern Washington Stadium Update

Post by Mr Lisle » Sun Sep 08, 2019 8:34 am

The Board of Trustees unanimously approved a plan to raise $25 million to renovatate Roos Field.
The AD said he thinks this is realistic and can be done. The earlier "Gateway Project" to raise $65 million never got off the ground. Mention was made of the necessity to replace the field turf.

The $65m never made it off the ground so they think a $25m renovation is feasible. Am I missing something or is this cc of um math?

Just a guess, but I think they're scaling back. The $65MM was a dream. $25MM is reality. You can do a lot with twenty five million dollars.

It will be interesting to see how long it takes to raise the $25 million
