Went to a function at Nationwide tonight and they gave us a tour of the improvements currently under construction. The scoreboard is huge, seeing it sitting on the floor is quite impressive! Looks like they are constructing a building down there! The video band around the arena has been updated to HD and the new dasher boards and glass is installed. The yellow band at the bottom of the old boards was a seperate piece sticking out about 1/2 inch causing weird bounces and such. It is integrated in the new ones making a smooth surface all the way down. The glass supports are farther apart making viewing a little clearer. On the corners they went from 4' apart to 5', and on the sides they went from 5' apart to 8'. they are also colored blue on the inside facing the ice. There are speakers all over the place, the sound should be incredible. They have not begun the video boards over the party towers yet but they have begun to extend the video band so it goes completely around the arena.
All in all it looks quite impressive, Nationwide arena will be a completely different experience when its if we could only win some games..............!!
