To date, 31 local and provincial organizations, representing more than 200,000 individuals have formally expressed their support.
And individuals are making their voices heard as well. Local athletes recently had the chance at two separate events to have their say and they responded enthusiastically and emphatically. More than 200 track athletes at the Dinos meet in December and basketball players at the Youth Basketball tournament in March took the time to sign the petition. And their passion for the project is clear in their written comments: “Please!”, “Do it!” “Excellent idea!”, “Yes!”, “Yes!”, “Yes!!!” Needed!” “Needed”, “Needed!”, “Do it NOW!”
CMFS hopes to have a presence at a number of other events this spring to provide information about the Fieldhouse project and give more athletes a chance to sign the petition so we can get shovels in the ground on this badly needed and much wanted facility.
Some events where you may see the CMFS tent (and petition) include:
Calgary Police Half Marathon (April 26)
Soccer Minifests (May 30 and June 6)
Caltaf Classic (June 20)
All Sport One Day (June 20).
