Gym Floor Refinished

Many gym users may have noticed that the floor was refinished over Christmas break.  A few interesting facts about CUC's gym floor that you may not know are:
  • This is a "top-of-the-line" gym floor, just like the one that the former NBA team the Vancouver Grizzlies had in their practice facility.
  • The original gym floor was covered carpet.
  • In 2002 the Lindgren Foundation contributed $225,000 and the new wood floor was installed.
  • It costs about $10,000 to have the floor refinished.
  • An Alberta Colleges Athletic League (ACAL) official recently told Professor Ron Schafer CUC had the best gym floor in the league.

Compare the beautiful gym floor CUC now has, thanks to the Lindgren Foundation, to the pre-2002 carpeted floor:
