After several weeks of waiting and 100+ hours of man power, the Hames Center opened operation of it’s new spring floor last Thursday (2-19-15).
The floor is 42 feet x 42 feet and took several volunteers the course of a week to install. Each spring was manually drilled into wooden boards, which support the new floor and provide a safe space for students. According to silks instructor, Frances Donohoe, the silks and gymnastics programs will eventually move down to the pool and will feature not only the new floor, but also a trampoline and foam pit. The space above the pool will be a weight area. The new space is expected to be near completion in the summer of 2015.
