The Bracknell Bees today, along with the John Nike Leisuresport Complex management, wish to provide the fans with another further update on the ongoing rink issues and repairs.
For the past few weeks it has been necessary to seat the visiting team’s fans in Block 1 or Block 4 (upstairs) but we are happy to announce that the issues requiring attention have been resolved and we are now in a position to seat the visiting away fans downstairs again, but for this week in block 1.
We thank the Bracknell Bees season ticket holders in those previously affected upstairs blocks for their patience and understanding over the last few weeks.
The air handling unit, which controls temperature and therefore the condensation is, we have been informed by the John Nike Leisuresport Complex management is now functional once more and now working well. Further to this the condensation that has been an issue with hopefully also be affected positively by this and the cold external temperatures at present.
Finally the temporary scoreboard situation is being actively worked on and should be in place in the next couple of weeks. It is planned to bring a large screen to the front of the platform above the AV room with the projector at the rear meaning that the Live Streaming team will no longer be obstructing the view of the temporary scoreboard. We have tried to keep the disruption to a minimum when we are live streaming or filming games but unfortunately the manpower required to film, stream and commentate on the game simply means bodies are required and cannot help but block the scoreboard from view for some people – we again thank the fans for their understanding.
Whilst we all realise that the ongoing issues are far from ideal the club would like to thank all supporters for their patience at this time whilst these issues have and continue to be addressed by the John Nike Leisuresport Complex team. The management of the Bracknell Bees had expressed to the rink that the issues are now impacting the club and it’s fans and we would like to thank the John Nike Leisuresport Complex management and staff for their ongoing hard work and efforts to date on these issues.
