We heard concerns about the floors at River Osborne being wet so we went there to check it out and yes it was bad, and almost certainly from condensation.
We have booked this gym before for 2-3 hours at a time and it’s been fine – it was even fine today during draft – but it looks like 6.5 hours coupled with the humidity of today was more than the ventilation system could handle.
For the immediate future we will be moving draft to EECC to reduce the stress on Osborne. We will make sure they have the large roof fans on (they were not on today) and check out the 9:30 game once again on April 9 and see what it’s like. If it is once again unacceptable we will do our best to find an alternative venue. We have already reached out to our regular places to see if any of them can accommodate Sunday evenings.
We do ask that you not write off the gym just because it was bad today. Clearly it can’t handle 6.5 hours in humid weather, but it was great for at least 3 hours, possibly 4 based on the timeline we have gathered from people’s responses. We will make sure everything is in place April 9th to deal with humidity/condensation, and if it is still bad we will make sure not to book the gym for more than 3 hours in future.
