Demolition/Construction Thread

I doubt there'll be a webcam at IWS during demo and rebuilding. So, if anyone who ventures down to the site wants to post update photos/comments/info, here's the place! Have at it!

No. I think this warrants a new thread; as it's not about debate and planning... or site and design. Those topics are covered ad infinitum in the other thread.

So, folks, please update us with pics and info. Not all of us can get to the IWS2 site often. I'll be visiting a few times ... and updating this thread... for sure.

I totally agree, almost 800 pages and 400 of its saying the same thing over and over again! About time a New thread was started! Two different topics all together, one is about the NEW stadium, this is about the Demo of the old one! :rockin:

I hate that friggin' thread. Everything about the stadium gets lumped into their and gets buried in no time. Anyways most of the posts are by Earl and Kirk reiterating the same old stuff. Time to start fresh where we can read about individual topics relating to the stadium.

How about a Demo Party in Scott Park? Could even raise a dollar or two for charity CFLFans fight cancer or something. Just an idea?

It will be a large excavating machine, like this one that took down Frank Clair in Ottawa. It was far cheaper to do it this way and they get to re-cycle the material.

The fact you felt the need to correct that was funny then all of a sudden you pull out a just like ottawa reponse....maybe they will let us borrow it huh...

I like my idea better can be a big event can be a "come out and catch your own piece of Ivor Wynne day"

I really like he idea of keeping this as a stand-alone thread.
Long history...starting with looking at Civic Stadium fron the windows of Prince of Wales School, standing on Bike seats to look over the fence, season tickets at the top of South stand, years of TV watching since leaving Hamilton....
Continuing this thread, hopefully with pictures, would be greatly appreciated, and also some historical importance.
