Painting the concrete starting line wall was a big undertaking all unto itself.

A special portable heater was utilized from CSDI to heat all the drywall and painting needs.

Bill with Riverside Welding finished installing the new stairway.

Star Fire took time to familiarize and update their facility layout.

New signage was installed on the new starting line concrete fence.

The official ribbon-cutting was conducted by Ada County Commissioners Rick Yzaguirre and Fred Tilman (center) during the Ignitor.
