Video Scoreboard Almost Ready at Enmax Centre

 
 

LETHBRIDGE: Crews are working at the Enmax to get the new video scoreboard up and running, with staff starting training on it next week.

Enmax Centre Operations Manager Len Overbeeke noted that the old scoreboard was eight years past its life expectancy. He stated that it was only supposed to last 10-years when it was put up in 1993.

Overbeeke explained that the bulbs were burning out on a regular basis on the old scoreboard, and repair and maintanence costs were starting to add up.

The new unit, which costs $1.2-million dollars, is being paid for by the city and through savings on the project. Overbeeke said that with the money saved on other parts of the Enmax Centre renovation, they were able to handle a large part of the cost.

Enmax Centre GM Kim Gallucci talked about the importance of the upgrade, by saying that it was something that was needed to improve the fans experience. He went on to say that there "won't be bad seat in the house" and that fans will be able to get a second and third look at all the major action throughout a game.

Gallucci also acknowledged that the addition of a video scoreboard will go a long ways towards bringing bigger events to Lethbridge, including the Memorial Cup at some point.

As for the general renovations at the Enmax Centre, Gallucci says everything's still on time and budget. He noted that they're hoping to have the entire project complete by March of 2012.
