Progress Update

At long last, we have started surfacing the court!! We should be able to have rims up soon!

We were supposed to have a landscaping day on September 22nd, but due to Hurricane Florence, this was not possible. The new landscape installation day, tentatively, is the 13th of October.

Update

We have made a lot of progress in the past few weeks. The surfacing and lining should be done this week. Thanks to Holt Basketball Services, we have the backboards up. We can put rims up when the surfacing and lining has cured. When the rims go up, play can start!!

Mark your calendars for September 15th! This is when we will install the benches and landscaping which fulfill the Eagle Scout portion of the project. Stay tuned for more details and a sign up genius.

Update

We are making steady progress on the road to completing the court. We are waiting to hear back from Spalding. who will hopefully donate the goals. I have also been in contact with First Bank and John Deere, who will hopefully donate to the project.

There are four companies in the concrete industry that we believe will provide the material for the court. However, we still have to raise money for the labor to place the concrete. This will total approximately $5,000. If we can secure donations for the concrete and goals, much of the heavy lifting for the project will be complete. Even still, money still needs to be raised for landscaping, and other finishing touches that will total approximately $1,500. If you or anyone you know can help with these needs, please visit the donate link below, or leave a comment on the blog post.  Join me to make Fuquay-Varina a better place.
