It's probably a mix of a few things but as long as our sports facilities continue to get upgrades, regardless of what order, that's a good sign.

I heard a rumor that npt3 wrote a check. :shock: 8)

Project estimated cost is $2.9 Million.

Seems low to me.

Estimated project completion is June 23rd, 2017

^ The Garber video board makes more sense now if it's 100% funded by donations.

They must already have a major donation waiting in the wings for the Garber video board then. I highly doubt they'd put that out to bid if they weren't already well past 75% funding.

^ Yeah, they must have some sort of commitment at least, unless the architect and engineer threw the cost of the design in for free. A lot of times that happens to help keep a good relationship with the school. And it's not a very intricate design for the Garber video board, so that wouldn't surprise me at all.

The bids came in under the estimate. With change orders it'll probably end up being more than the estimate though, :lol: :lol:
