OPEN HOUSE at ALBI STADIUM! Saturday, Aug 11th from Noon to 7:00 PM About 100 - 120 people stopped by and met with us. Thanks to the Belton Racing Team with their race car #5, CenterPlate for the food, SYSA and Skyhawks for the field games & Tshirts, Kiwanis for Tshirts and support, Clearwater Music (near the Y) for their music and instruments for kids to try, and Councilman Crow for the Phase 1 Albi Complex map and explainations. Although attendance was low, the Open House was successful. Many of the City Council and mayoral candidates saw the stadium up close and were impressed favorably. Several neighbors were supportive of the proposed improvements north of the stadium. We talked with two gentlemen who were interested in holding events at Albi Stadium. We will pursue these opportunities - on would involve an event of 15,000 to 20,000 people. THANKS for YOUR SUPPORT! Jim & Paul
