Fayetteville, North Carolina SEGRA Stadium Update, 04/06

Now 6 days from Fayetteville Early Fan Look, 04/13 from Noon until 3:00 pm.

There is much to be done before the Home Opener and even before next Saturday’s Fayetteville Fan First Look. For example, fencing to control access, yet more concrete is to be poured. Because of the rain, it is quite muddy. The conditions are not favorable to a clean event a week from now. Yes! I think the fan-look and first games will be played. I also think construction will continue beyond those dates…

These are an interesting addition to Fayetteville’s night scene, never mind light pollution…

A few more pics from my stadium watch…

Five days to Substantial Completion Date [03/29/2019] for the stadium [not the parking] garage. Some barriers have been moved and the perimeter of the park is more clearly defined. Grass has been planted on the north end along the CSX rails. Section posts are visible on the 3rd-base side of the playing field. The backing for the community media board [to the left of the scoreboard] is now up.

Charity ~ The Fayetteville Woodpeckers Community Leaders Program, 03/20

So, now I know what the support pilllars to the left of the scoreboard are for…

Thanks to the Woodpeckers Charity Partners, whose names will be displayed on a separate media board to the left of the scoreboard. Several community activities will benefit for the Woodpeckers presence in Fayetteville this inaugural year. Please see the News 17 video below for a summary of the Woodpeckers and their partners’ community involvement.

Currently, $65,000 has been donated by the partners, with another $100K expected this year. This is GREAT for Fayetteville! See the comment below for the video backstory.

Fayetteville, NC SEGRA Stadium Update, 03/21

Now with eight days to the 03/29 Substantial Completion Date.

There are three key dates in this project’s immediate future: 1) Substantial Completion—03/29. I presume that is defined in the contract between the parties. I have not seen it discussed.; 2) First Fan Look—04/13; and, 3) Home Opener—04/18.

Assurances have been given on meeting each of the dates above. I trust it will happen. I plan to be there for First Fan Look and the Home Opener. I have purchased tickets for 22 games.
