RE: The Hall, AKA "Kaplan Arena"
Does the College's charter need to be amended to allow for seating all the way around the court/field of play for Football and/or Basketball? It is a strange quirk of design in the facilities for both of these sports at W&M.

The Hall turns 50 in a few years. Id say thats reason enough for a major renovation.

Have been sorry to see the back of the parking lot return to trailer and parts storage. Parking will be a bear for the Gold Rush and Charleston games.

I’ve avoided going on my yearly rant on this topic. The space I had to squeeze into and practically crawl out of my window last Saturday game always absurd. If I hadn’t dropped the wife and kid at the door, no way I could have gotten him out of his car seat. It’s a disgrace.

That's really disappointing. I was glad to see the athletic department make that change its too bad they've gone back to storage.

While not perfect, they are running shuttles back & forth to and from Kaplan from alternate parking locations at the Gold Rush game.

How would I know this? I’ve seen nothing that tells me it.

And that’s great for Gold Rush, what about all of the other games when they run it of parking while I don’t know... 20-30 spaces are taken up by storage boxes? Might even be more than that.

It’s a disgrace IMO.

A great model for the renovation of Kaplan Arena is University of Richmond's Robins Center. Originally a very similar barn to Kaplan, the Robins Center was built in '72 with a cavernous seating capacity of 9,000+.

U of R renovated it in 2013-14, reducing the capacity to 7,200 and adding bowl (all-the-way-around) seating that was more vertical, four video boards (one in each corner) and skyboxes. Cost was $17 million.

Too bad that there is not land next to the parking lot where trees could be felled and sold to help defray the cost of modifying it suitable for storage.
