Flynn Ski Room Status #2

Alumni Gym Nordic Locker Room (1)

The Bates Ski Room & Tentative New Layout

Folks –

I had a chance to see Bob’s induction into the Bates Scholar / Athlete society over the weekend.  Great ceremony and Coach looks awesome.

It also seemed like a good time to do a quick update on the nordic room update and the dedication of the Flynn Ski Rooms.

Things are rolling along.  They’ve already had an electrician on site to prepare for network access in the space.  The room will be cleared out sometime next week and they’ll start the project in earnest in June.  The biggest part of the project will be the new lockers.  Becky is finalizing the design with facilities and — hold on to your hats — it seems that the new lockers will actually hold skis.

All signs point to a mid-August completion.  That’s a tentative date given anything unforeseen when they install the new ventilation system, but the room should definitely be completed when the students arrive back on campus.

The tentative dedication ceremony will be Homecoming Weekend — probably on Saturday, October 25th.  Much more to follow, but I’d start to think about being on campus that weekend.

And it goes without saying — please pass this info along to others who might be interesting in donating.  We ended up a bit “short” of the $50k goal.  A donor stepped in to cover the shortfall, but we could use a few more skiers.  PLEASE tell them to mention/write on the check/put in the comment field “FLYNN SKI ROOMS.”

And a wicked big thanks to :
