Results Achieved to Date

  • 8/4/10

    Our Beaver Stadium PAT had met to develop a coverage process for football game day operations predicated upon my leaving the football operations booth after 25 years.

    The PAT solved this need and had begun a dialog about the possible need for a 12 month, full time position for events involving the football stadium. These discussions continue to this day.

    We met our objective in that we successfully solved the football game day need for coverage and had identified other needs in the process.
