Hard Hat Huddle Picture Thread

68 posts in this topic

Well I know a lot of us who were at the Hard Hat Huddle tonight have a plethora of pictures to share. I am surprised to be the first one to post them, though. Here are some of the best ones:IMG_1753.jpgIMG_1756.jpgIMG_1762.jpgIMG_1775.jpgIMG_1779.jpgIMG_1787.jpgIMG_1789.jpgIMG_1793.jpgAnd a couple HDR's for good measure ;)IMG_1784_5_6.jpgIMG_1796_7_8.jpg

Wow! What great photos! I can finally see what the scoreboard looks like...I wonder if they'll leave the webcams up, once they start playing games? Would be great for those of us outside of the Akron/Cleveland area...Thanks again!

I was wondering if that was going to be how we started to connect with recruits from the Southwest. :wave::wave:

Is the scoreboard finished?There are empty spots on both sides of the Summa Field sign and the sides are open.

It's not quite finished. Only the center part of the LED ribbonboard is installed.

I was worried it was going to be the "grassy knoll". Thank goodness Dennis Kennedy is no longer with the team. ;)

This is where they're adding a real kangaroo environment... Looks like the Outback... Real Kangaroos at the Infocision for opening weekend...

Great to hear. Thanks. I am already pretty underwhelmed with the scoreboard. Glad to know that part will be better at least.

Since we all took the same tour, I would suggest only adding "unique" photos to this thread that aren't already posted.Photo of the scoreboard, check, photo of the grass, check, photo of the lights, check, photo from the 50 yard line, check...you get the idea.I tried to take a photo of the elevator in the much discussed North buildings, but it didn't come out. Too many reflections. If you have a photo of that,I think the out of state people might like to see that. I saw MANY enthusiastic fans with there cameras last night! If anybody got to tour the upper levelsand took photos, don't hold back, let's see 'em.

The second batch of pics on this thread is great. Lots of items and angles I haven't seen before. I like the natural areas on either side of the north endzone building. Would it be too late to add a water feature to these areas? A waterfall into a hot tub would be nice.

Please don't kill me for saying this and I am not complaining but I do feel the South-scoreboard end looks a bit barren. That end of the stadium is wide wide open and there really is no significant backdrop, i.e tall trees or buildings, I wonder if the have any plans to "fill" in that area or spice it up a bit, aesthetically it is a bit challenged especially compared to the North end.gallery_2_33_254433.jpg

Now THAT's a great idea. And maybe the Outback restaurant could pay us big money to have their sign placed there.

Perhaps it's a blessing that we'll be able to view the picturesque area south of Exchange during our game day experience. I think it will look fine if people actually sit there.

The area behind it is still under construction and I don't think anything has been done with it yet.I would expect to see some sort of landscaping (trees) eventually. When we drove by it last night on Exchange I thought thatit would be a pretty good way to "realize" there is a game going on by being able to see into the field from Exchange.infocision.jpg

That's the first time I've seen the back of the scoreboard. That banner just looks extremely tacky if you ask me.
