    Default If The Saddledome Is Not Ready Where Will the Flames Play /Events

    so a similar thing happened in Nashville and it wasn't as bad happened about in may as ken said and took them up until October to get it ready just in time. here there is less time and it was worse will all the events and shows be cancelled upcoming in august/sept i doubt that is an option they will lose a lot of money and maybe they start on the road for like 10 games or so etc. what do you guys think will happen they will get it done by then ?

    Corral? That would be old school. Watched the Flames play there as a kid.

    nah, the dome will be ready in plenty of time. training camps and all that will happen at either the corral or at max bell.

    It is going to be interesting to see how they get the stampede grounds ready.

    How can you think Calgary can flip the Saddledome in a shorter timeframe than Nashville? Does Calgary have a magic wand? Further, you're dreaming if you think the Stampede is going to happen on any scale.

    Let's hope his ability to flip a rink is better than his skills in running a hockey team.

    Last night on CBC Kelly Hrudey mentioned he was talking to Ken King and King mentioned that there's a good possibility the dome wouldn't be ready by the start of the season, but he was confident that the NHL would be accommodating as far as scheduling goes.

    I can't see it being ready by then.

    His job is not to run the hockey team but more so the operations of the Calgary Flames Brand. I'm pretty sure he's doing a good job of doing that.

    The Flames brand doing fine, so King is the man it appears. I hope he pulls it off, but really how can you expect it to be business as usual? I support the Flames as much as anyone and honestly would like to see a camera crew follow the process from day one. It would make for interesting TV. Personally, I am more concerned about the lost concerts as I attend only a handful of Flames games each year.

    its wouldnt take much to run a street sweeper over a patch of parking lot and throw up a temporary structure for all your summer concert needs

    seriously, the seating is mostly going to be breaking out a pressure washer, and steam cleaners for the fabric ones in avis young club.

    I expect the jumbotron will be a write off and won't be there at the start of the season.

    The rest of it is all fairly accessible for electricians, and cleaning the ice surface and such. It is all concrete down there, so it makes for easy clean up, and the corridors down there are all pretty large. easy enough to drive bobcats in.

    seriously, I have zero doubt in my mind that it will be ready by the second week in September.

    someone, bet me a large coffee at Timmie's!

    I wouldn't doubt that they blast through cleanup and be done in 2-3 weeks. There's some pretty big concerts coming up and they probably don't want to cancel or reschedule them.

    Default Saddledome Clean-up

    Have any of you seen the Saddledome after some of the rock concerts? It usually looks like a tornado blew through and sometimes requires powerspraying to clean the concrete seating areas!! I agree with some of the other posts, just a quick clean-up, maybe replace some seats and as long as the electrical work can be completed over the summer, then the Flames and Hitman should be fine for October.

    Not sure about some of the July concerts though...

    Wow, talk about Mr. Negativity. I quoted this to prove you otherwise. Hope the rest of Calgary has a way better attitude than you.

    Jumbotron was suspended and suffered no damage according to Francis (so take it with a grain of salt).

    The flames might start the season with a month on the road. I cannot see it taking any longer then that to get everything together enough to make due.

    The jumbotron itself didn't sustain any damage, but the entire control room that operates it is totaled. None of the equipment is salvageable. All the dressing rooms. electrical equipment. HVAC.
    So said King, anyways.

    So much shit has to be replaced at the dome. Ice making machine, all electrical, HEROIN BEER LINES, video rooms, jumbotron rooms. All this stuff isn't exactly off the shelf. Plus there's probably going to be huge labour shortages to get the work done in the upcoming months.

    It's not a matter of taking a pressure washer and power washing the place out and that's it haha.
