    I have to admit.

    The fact that the "Swamp Gate Project" is not a done deal is rather shocking.

    Good point!

    Hope to be able to count on you and any of your friends for either labor/money on the Swamp Gate Project.

    How do we go about changing the name of Cajun Field to "Louisiana Stadium"? It is time we do more to capture the name.

    Is Cox really considering these naming rights? What about the COX CAJUNDOME!!! The city and university should seriously consider finding a sponsor for the Cajundome, this will help with funding it.

    Gerald and the University are going to attrack monies like this first to stadiums we own not ones the city and state own and or we have just part ownership in.

    I understood the Athletic complex or the indoor practice facility to be what Cox is going to sponsor the naming rights to. The announcement was to be announced back in Feb '06, but there is more involved than just the naming rights. Gerald is hoping it is done soon, so to attract other simular monies to name other facilities or fund the $20+ Million Scholarship Fund which would free up approx $1.5 Million already in the athletic budget. These freed monies could be used for many things like: coaches pay, increased budgets for ALL sports, facility enhancement, marketing, recruiting, etc!!!

    Correct the ones one the Bertrand side are complete at the Stadium that is, but on the CajunDome side of Cajun field the Gates are not complete.

    Gerald just called and WE will take the $5500 + dollars add it to $15,000 from the University by way of Donation from the Moncla's and discounts from a local fence company, Bricks donated by Baker, Marble by Greene, Circle Ragin Cajuns by Begnauds and some labor from a local contractor and some of the people on RaginPagin and Delphi then GET $12,500 MORE DOLLARS AND BOOM THERE ARE THE GATEWAYS.

    NOW, before anyone gets upset we are able to do this because this contractor will also DO all the other gates already bricked around the complex and add a few more bricked gateways, WHILE also providing ALL the ACTUAL GATES for EACH Gateway including the SWAMPGATES!!!!!!!!

    All material will be like at the Baseball, Softball and Tennis complexes!!!

    Dates for any manual labor help will come after we get the financial portion completed.

    Getting the Financial end done is the hard part! Anyone able to chip in $25, $50, or $100 or more would be great. It all adds up and the magic number is $12,500! I have a couple of friends that may be able to chip in each $1000 or so. but that is a maybe. I will chip in another $250.00 so the number now is $12,250!!!

    DaddyCajun


    Private message me if you want to call me.

    ps Remember ALL the "actual gates" depend on this monies coming through!!

    Gerald, was telling me of a better grade of paint for the tunnel, wall around field, railings, steps anything RED could, should and WILL be painted with. It is not that much more expensive but does NOT fade nearly as quickly. It is the same stuff they used on the scoreboard prior to the New Orleans Bowl!!!


    DaddyCajun


    ps We just need firm comittments towards the $12,500, which do NOT have to be paid all at once. Takers can PM me if they do not want to be mentioned on the boards.

    Ragin' Cajuns SwampGates up on Student Side..

    26169.1

    The Long awaited "Swamp Gates" are up on the Student side of the field. They were actually up as of the first home game!

    I want to again THANK EVERYONE who put up monies towards this project. Here on Delphi and on RaginPagin I posted request to have monies raised to build these gates several years ago. We raised over $6500 dollars!!!!!!!!! The SGA put up a grand, so did the Alumni Association the remainder came frome YOU!!!

    Due to the price of oil and steel the project ended up costing well over $30,000. Some of that $30,000 is the marble tops to be donated be Greene Marble and Tile, also the nice Circle Ragin Cajun plaques are being donated by a local Manufacturing Co.(starts with a B) I will post the name when it comes to me(they are GREAT UL backers). The Bricks were donated again this time. The remainder of the gates and labor was donated thru trade with Dailey Fence company!!!

    This project should be totally complete prior to homecoming!

    You have made Cajun Field not only look better but also make more money for years to come thru sponsorships of these gateways!!!! This is something you can tell your friends and family, as how stepping up as you did can and will make a difference!!!!

    Now that this complete I will be coming to you with a much smaller project tomorrow when I get the numbers from Gerald. This is will be at the tennis complex, which is a Difference Makers Project I have taken over. I will be asking for $10-$20 donations to make it happen. I feel that most can afford this amount and more can get involved and take additional pride in this Difference Making Project!!!

    UL Football Re: SwampGates up on Student Side..

    Thanks DC I took some pictues of the new Swamp Gates at the McNeese game but decided not to post them because of the forced trash dump at the entrances.

    Otherwise they look great and are far better than the old swing out chainlink gates.

    I meant to but forgot to take more at the Troy game.
