New turf field at Kannapolis

Recommended Posts

OK. My second guess is now all the Cabarrus County HS FB programs can use this to have their fields turfed. You can not do for one and not the others.

Kannapolis City and the Kannapolis City School System footed the largest part of the cost.  The school system decides how to use the funds they are allotted by the two counties just as Cabarrus Schools decide what to do with their county funds.

I understand what you are saying, but I can still see why all the Cabarrus County schools can make the argument that since Cabarrus County funds were used to fund the KTown  turf that Cabarrus County should provide funds for them to do that as well.

If they start it the first of May it should be almost complete about graduation.

they are a petition to stop turf being put down because of graduation

Are they going to petition the “weather gods” if it rains?  

Move graduation to Intimidators Stadium.

I heard that they are building a new stadium downtown and they are going to change their name. Even though my two children live in the Concord area, I don't get much information from them in terms of what is going on.

They will be in their new stadium next year in downtown. They are talking about changing their name and a lot of people don't like it.

Theresa Earnhardt owns the right to the Intimidator's name. The city can't make money off it.

I am not a racing fan and know nothing about it so I have no idea what the term Intimidator means. But, I neve knew what a Wonder was either.

The late Dale Earnhardt was known as the “Intimidator”

What I Hear most often Story Goes that when they opened up Brown the school was small and everybody WONDER how would they field a football team. And that's how they got the nickname the Wonders.

Great name.  That is right up there with Lint Heads.

Dude, I'm from Belmont, we are what we are.

A fence, a railroad track, and an access street separated my house from the mill.  

Canton Pisgah's jersey's have Mill Town in smaller font right under the neckline and the middle stripe of the helmet is a train track.  It looks really good!!!

Ok btango, I'm confused. Are you indeed offended or are you being fecious.

Most of the people I know from Kannapolis, who worked in the mills,  are proud of their past. I would be willing to bet, if they have to give up the name Intimidators, most would be ok with something that reflected their history. Oh well I guess we all see things differently.

Facetious!

I do not get offended.  Not many I grew up with “On The Hill” were the type to get offended.  

Regardless of the places I have lived and the sites I have seen, I Am Mill Hill!

Field always looked great,, but truthfully there were drainage issues.  Artificial turf is costly up front, but should pay off in the long run, which is why so many schools are going to it.
