VMAC Update

by: Michael Steffes

Not too much we haven't heard before, but Adam McFadden of The Bellevue Reporter has a short article on the Virgina Mason Athletic Center. It seems that the Hawks are preparing for it be very fan friendly, however, most likely the big crowds will be next year. In order to accommodate the cars, there will be a shuttle from a local parking lot, which I found interesting. The reason fans aren't allowed in Kirkland is mainly that there is no place to park cars, or so I was told.

The teams last announced plan was to move into the facility the final week of the preseason. They are expected to hold practice there on Saturdays during training camp so that fans can come and watch. END
