There has been an incredible show of support for the Friends of the Rockies fundraiser so far. 175 people have completed sign up to date with upwards of 40 people committed to sign up over the next few weeks. That gives us a total of 215 people who have pledged to become Friends Of The Rockies and we are powering forward towards our first major milestone of 200 fully signed up backers in the coming weeks and months. We would like to thank you all for this incredible show of support and would ask those who have pledged support to complete the sign up process. Contact details and methods of payment are detailed at the end of this article.
Where are we in terms of starting construction?
Thanks to you and your support we are now moving forward with the development of Phase 2 of the project. A preferred contractor has been selected from the tenders and we are now awaiting approval from the Sports Capital Funding body to begin construction. The 4G surface will be ordered to specification and it is hoped that construction can begin in the next 4 to 6 weeks. The project will take 8 to 12 weeks to complete and an August opening could be on the cards assuming all goes to schedule.
It is vital that we continue to support and promote the Friends Of The Rockies fundraiser and continue to drive this project towards Phase 3.
