Mavchamp has mentioned all the work that's gone into the stadium in the last few years, but we aren't finished. The bleachers need to be replaced, the concessions area needs updating. So many other things that could be done. I hope they don't think they are finished. We still have 5-6 months to get some work done. What's on your wish list for the stadium?
Our field is great and the scoreboard is awesome. But our stands and bleachers are the worst in the district with the exception of Nacogdoches. We really need to get the stadium and seats upgraded. I like the idea of stadium chairs, but I'd settle for some bleachers that don't tear your jeans when you sit on them or not have a back ache for a week after a game. I don't think finishing the stadium is a priority right now. They are concentrating on the high school seems like.

If the school district was really interested in investing in the stadium, given its location, it could be a premier playoff venue for early round playoff games for classes 2A, 3A, and 4A. But they need to finish what they started. Some real entrances on the home and visitors sides with wrought iron fenses and some big wrought iron gates. New concessions area. Replacing the asphalt. Get rid of the chain link fences, or at least replace them. Renovate the concession stands. Replace the bleachers and asphalt under the stands. Finish the score board...it looks like we ran out of money. The new turf, lights, pressbox are all great. But we need to finish it. Looks like we half-assed it. Hopefully they will get it finished. But I've heard our new super hates spending money on sports. We should have finished it before Gibson left. We may not get anymore athletic facility upgrades for another 20 years.
I haven't heard anything definite concerning the stadium.... only rumbles and rumors. But I don't think MISD is finished with the stadium. They are just doing it in peices a little at a time. It'll be good when it's all done. School board has done an outstanding job getting the facilites done..... no reason to think they wouldn't finish what they started IMHO.

I remember Mavchamp posting something about doing concessions behind the scoreboard like they have in Whitehouse and Jacksonville. It would be expensive, but it would be a great addition. Our concessions are in terrible shape. Grand entrances on the home and visitors side would be awesome too. Other than that, I think things are really looking good.
