I would be very concerned, and be extremely pro-active with the nay-sayer. Do not let the park people answer the questions, bring in the people that know the sport and can answer the information for them prior to the next meeting. Do not wait. Get energetic with all the board members. Send them the proposal and the powerpoint presentations that you shuold have prepared for this event. ASk them follow up questions to drive home the desire within the area, and most importantly the new additinoal revenue stream that this can produce with relatively minimal impact to the surrounding amenities.
Be sure to maximize the cost of the entire installation is generally going to be a fraction of the cost of a playground area and cover a large section of the underused portions of the park. The ROI on the project will clearly be a significant draw, and hopefully you haev already extrapolated numbers for them over a 3-7 year time span.
Get in front of this, or it could kill it.
We were all told that Pottberg Park was a done deal as well, with baskets ordered, and welll..........no there is a course in Laegacy.......
