Winnebago football field renovations scheduled to finish prior to Aug. 15 Alumni game
By Doug Schroder
WINNEBAGO – Work on the renovation of Winnebago’s football bleachers has been progressing well and should b finished in time for the big Alumni football game this Friday. The visitor’s bleachers are have been replaced with a totally new structure, while the home bleachers are being retrofitted. Retrofitting the bleachers takes longer to do, but saved the School District a large amount of cash
“The schools saved a large amount of cash by using the existing frames and retrofitting the [home] bleachers. I don’t know the exact figure, but I’ve been in this business long enough to know the savings figure has lots of zeros behind it,” said Paul, the Supervisor of the crew doing the renovation.
Workers from BR Bleachers, out of Woodstock, IL., were busy working on the home bleachers on Friday, Aug. 8. Some of the building supplies were delayed in arrival, so the crew returned to their homes after work on Friday and were scheduled to return on Wednesday, Aug. 13.
All work is scheduled to be completed in time for the Alumni Football game on Aug. 15. It should be another great season of Indians football with all of the new additions.
