Im with you here. Its not like "Elites" is a bad term. i think he took it as a deragatory term. And you certainly didnt come across as envious.

The arriving, parking, and departing phases of attending an event are so key, but for whatever reason I think too many "venue operators" for lack of a better term fail to understand that. It's basically a visitor's - a customer's! - first and last impression of their outing.

So true... The Nutter Center is an example of the bad. One point is the higher ups "The Boards" are composed of people who don't buy regular tickets, park in lots, and slosh thru the snow.

Remember their opinion is more important because they stayed at a Holiday Inn Express!

Parking structures

Parking is a problem everywhere...at most places more so than at UD. When I look at the acres of parking around the Arena I often wonder what the complaining is about.

UConn's on-campus facility seats 10,400 and is right in the middle of campus. That means fans are competing for parking spaces with university staff and students for available spots on game nights. For many years when we went to games we did not know where we would wind up parking.

Since then UConn has constructed two large parking garages which have helped enormously, i.e.., we always know where we are going to park...in our assigned garage directly across the street from the arena. The garages have six floors of parking with entrances/exits at the top and bottom. If you are on levels 1 or 2, or 5 or 6, you're in good shape. But, God help those that wind up on levels 3 or 4. If you're in the "middle" it can take 45 min, easy, to exit the garage. The solution is to leave the game plenty early...just like the Arena parking lots.

What really frosts my wife is that upon entry to our garage are about 20 spaces that are roped off and guarded....spaces that usually remain unused except for a few. Those spaces are for "Legend" donors...$50K+ annually. I explain to my wife that if a guy gives $50K or more he d@mn well better have a guaranteed space to park when he comes to a game. Still she btiches.

Parking is a fundamental problem. Fans arrive over a period of 30-45 minutes, or so. But everyone wants to leave at the same time, for the most part. That's tough to deal with even under the best circumstances.

Go Flyers!

Off topic question...

Sorry to post this question here but I couldn't find the "construction: forum.

Does anyone know if the project to demolish McGinnis and build an apartment complex has begun? If so, what is the current status. Thank you.

Inside scoop good news: The new HD screen was delivered and should be installed soon if not already.

Inside scoop bad news: The project is behind schedule as UD attempts to cut costs...stay tuned.

So why do you install HD screens and new seats during phase I, when tons of concrete to be jack hammered up, walls torn out, etc......in the future phases? The pretty cosmetic things should come last after the dust has settled, not first.

It's not an inside scoop if it was on twitter and youtube on August 18th.

President Spina posted a few photos today... center scoreboard is hung and looks superb. Ribbon boards are new (and functional). Heard things are looking good in there - rave reviews for the new seats.

For now yes, but later on they will move them a bit (still in the corners) and angle them so you can see better from the upper Arena. Most folks should be able to see the center video boards, though I think some of the sight lines from up high won't be great to see the center boards.

You could do that if you were renovating everything at once. But since they have taken the view of doing this over 3 offseasons, they can't afford to not put the place back together again after each season of work.

That...and the fact that if you are going to request a return on a graduated seat license increase, those with the most to give need to see some benefit out of the gate.

Phase one of the three-year, $72 million renovation of UD Arena remains on schedule. UD Arena Director Scott DeBolt expects the Dayton Flyers will get a chance practice on their home court at least a week before their exhibition games Nov. 4, if not earlier.

“Hopefully, we’ll get them in the building at least to shoot around to get a feel for it a little bit,” DeBolt said Wednesday.

It's been a while since passing by the display along I75 near the arena.
But based upon the comments on this board in other threads that display doesn't work about 99.7 % of the time. Here's hoping the new indoor vid board has got a much better "up-time" .

BTW is something going to be done about that I75 display board . Nothing spells small time better than an outdoor video display that has not worked in years with your name displayed near it!

With the center board hung the corner boards will stay the same for this season. Arena staff are going to survey (visually and by asking) fans during the season to see where their eyes are drawn during games and to what boards they look at. This will determine how they are positioned after season 1 of the renovations.

I was told that they may take opposing boards and flip one towards the upper arena and keep the opposite the way it is. I would think with the style of center scoreboard, stat displays will be the same as other places UD travels to with them on the center display...such as Barclays.

The center scoreboard is yuge as seen in the Instagram pictures above. The speakers for the new audio system are impressive as well. It will definitely sound like a modern arena and give people what they want in terms of audio.

The oddest part is seeing the lower arena having seats that are all one color. It plays on the eyes. I thought it looked bigger, as the seats are a darker blue. They look nice. There is a contrast from the dark blue seats and the refinished concrete. The concrete is lighter. May sound odd that the refinished concrete is noticed, but it changes the overall appearance of the lower arena.

I am excited to see the project come together.

Sounds like they missed the boat on this. The lower bowl seats should have been painted to look like red sweater vests. That way, when everyone heads out early to beat the traffic, the lower arena would still look full.

BTW is something going to be done about that I75 display board . Nothing spells small time better than an outdoor video display that has not worked in years with your name displayed near it!
Last time I talked to Neil about it the technology to even run the I75 board is antiquated and no longer supported (similar to the old game scores on the end zone boards inside the Arena). There were no specific funds to re-do it right away in the Arena reno, but were savings found during the process, it would be looked into.

Im sure Daktronics makes a solution for it. All it takes is someone with a large enough checkbook.

I agree about the acid-washed/painted concrete inside. Whatever they did or however they did it, it looks 100% better. The old concrete looked dark and dirty like a cell block on Alcatraz.

I haven't been in there yet but maybe they painted/coated it with a product similar to those garage floor coatings or even a line-x type product. Whatever it is looks 100% better.

Also I'm just waiting for the first person to complain on here that the speakers are too lowd.

Can't wait to hear the new sound. Under the overhang in lower bowl corner the PA didn't exist for my liking.

Nothing fancy. They ground off all the old seat hardware. Filled the holes/cracks/etc, ground it all down and resurfaced it all and appeared to simply seal it. I was in there before the scoreboard was hung and it was a dust bowl. Gotta think about all the years of dirt, grime, etc that gets worn into concrete. A resurface and a simple sealer will make concrete look brand new.

*and they'll be related to beer...

I was in the arena last night and it looks awesome. All the seats are installed and the scoreboard is nothing short of Royal.

While I was there the staff was rehearsing the team entrance for pregame layup lines, etc... The cheerleaders were just in shorts and t-shirts but the funny part was the 'team' consisted of a bunch of 30-50 year old men who ran out of the locker room behind the cheerleaders just like the team and went straight to layup lines...really, really ugly layup lines. All the while the music was cranked up and highlight videos were playing as if it were gameday.

I can't imagine anyone complaining about the upgrades, but I'm sure we'll hear of a couple* by this time next week.

I find it hard to believe that, with an Arena renovation that will end up north of $100M this can't also be addressed.

On one of those UD sponsored "open houses" at the arena a long time ago ... but RIGHT after the $72 million dollar renovation number was repeated in the paper ... I answered the cost question to another fellow visitor ... But I was corrected by the UD guide (younger UD Sports employee) ... he said the "Renovation is $75 Million". I just kept quiet but I wanted to say ... "Boy it went up $3M overnight".

I predict the first complaint will be some people saying the sound system volume is too high. Hopefully they just offer those people some free earplugs instead of turning down the volume.

I guess I'm one of those people. If you happen to sit in the upper arena, as soon as the pre-game sponsor commercials come on, the volume is doubled, then goes back down for the U. D. announcements and line-up. I hope they turn down the commercials.

I know what you mean as I sat in the 2nd row of the 400's for one game last year, and my ears rung the rest of the week. I am willing to bet the new sound system is more balanced, more speakers, each on lower volume than just a few blasting away.

You know what really grinds my gears? I go to a baseball game and they have to play something over the PA system at 110 db every 30 seconds. It's baseball. You're there to socialize. It's a pastime.

I expect a little more noise at a basketball game but if it takes the whole night for me to ask my buddy "how's the wife and kids" and get an answer because every 3rd word is interrupted by "Y'all ready for this?" then it's a bit much.

Chris, I was told that they fixed all of the "nicks" in the concrete then sprayed an epoxy. I was there the other day and got a sneak peek - looks awesome.
