Yesterday afternoon, I went to Alamo stadium for MORE photos of the renovation. This was my first time using my digital camera at Alamo stadium as I finally got a new battery and charger and hey, it works!!! YAY!!!
Joe Montoya, the project manager, was my chaperone. I met up with him at the construction trailer and after I put on my safety helmet and vest, off we went!!
With each visit, I am always amazed at the progress! I want to see and touch everything in my path!! On our journey, Joe pointed a lot of stuff out to me and I really appreciated that.
You know something, when everything is completed and I work my first game at Alamo stadium, I will need a moment to reflect on the fact that I got to witness the renovation firsthand!!! Wow, just writing that gave me goosebumps!!
The last time I made a site visit was for my KSAT 12 FEATURE ON SEPTEMBER 27TH. In case you missed it, you can see it hear: http://www.ksat.com/news/photographer-documents-alamo-stadium-renovation/-/478452/22161582/-/u9uo7sz/-/index.html
During that last visit, I didn’t go inside the Convocation Center gymnasium, but I did on August 27th and it was dark, powerless, and there was scaffolding everywhere. Well, what a difference 2 months make because the Convocation Center gymnasium is almost completed and the grand opening celebration will consist of basketball games in a few weeks!!
Let me be the first to say that I love the new windows in the gymnasium and dude, the executive offices for Gil Garza, Brian Clancy, and company are very nice and probably larger than their current set-up.
Alamo stadium still has a lot of work left and should be ready by next summer. Joe told me that next month, work will begin on the press-box (I can’t wait to take photos of that).
If you want to use any of the photos below, all I ask is for you to give me credit (photo courtesy of Mark Lieberman at mdlblog.com). Thanks.
