Most likely Fluid. I can't say that's what they'll be using fur sure, just a guess, but Todd seems to have been very pleased with their product. I'll probably be stopping in tomorrow if I have time, maybe I can find out.

the field is big. just about regulation xball size (a little less wide however)
it is xball with brand new bunkers
with a 10 ft x in the middle and i THINK its a full set up (dont quote me on that)
NO CARPET, todd said (and makes a good point) that it will just obsorbe the paint and be impossible to clean and itd be ****ty and goopy and ****. as of right now it is on a wodden floor (presumably the same wooded area youd find at any skate rink) and todd is going to hold back on buying turf after a while to see how the field will do (would cost ups of 20 k)

pictures will be up later tonight of the field, by MONTY, i do not think that are the best quality but it will give a decent overview.

in my opinion this will blow the APP indoor in CR away, it is SO much bigger. WAY WAY bigger.
the only concern i have is the wood and how that will be played out, so no cleats, obviously

im personally so excited about a field FINALLY in des moines, and a good looking one at that. i wont be able to be there saturday as i am leaving for texas that morning, but everyone should definatly go there to see it and support a good field run by good guys

You know, as much as I miss playing speedball, my body just can't take the abuse right now, I'm in dire need of another knee surgery as it is, and most of my crew just don't really care for it. But I might be able to get them to go and play some rec games. It'd be better than freezing our arses off in single digit temps and sub-zero windchills lol.

Gotta admit though, I really wonder how well it's going to pan out playing on a wood floor. It'd be akin to playing on a basketball court. Gonna get messy, get really slippery really quick. But Todd's right, it'll be a LOT easier to clean up between games and such than it would if he laid down carpet or turf. Just use a floor squeegee.

Okay guys the floor is a special type of plywood that has a tacky glue type coating. Metal cleats will not be permitted but if you want to use rubber or plastic cleats feel free. Your best bet is to use a good tennis shoe as they seem to work very well with this floor. Dimensions are 175 ft long and 75 ft wide. Anyways here are some pics, they are not the best due to the size of the field my flash would not capture everything.

Superman that OOOOOOOOOOOHHHH... oh crap I got a broken somethingorother... Which is exactly why I'm also a back player. That, and a 6'3, 270 pound frame like mine does not make for a very good snake man.

The field looks good though, glad to see he put down something that's at least somewhat playable. That adhesion stuff will make it much easier to get around. Gonna suck to slide on if it's tacky, so good luck to anyone that wants to try it. If it's nice and smooth, not terribly tacky, maybe it'll be okay but at the moment I forsee roadrash in someone's future.

haha well todd im sure didnt want to go all out on some field and have the whole plan backfire.

im almost positive that if people come, and the people comming in is constant, he will upgrade the field, but he is just being smart at this point by starting with something small.

thus again, why i am glad i play back
