Sunday, June 28th was the day; sports hall Eckart was definitively locked for Almonte Basketball and BC Eindhoven.
To give it a "festive" touch, everyone was invited to walk through the Eckart for the last time and reminisce, after which the hall was symbolically locked.
After a small speech by our chairman, the Almonte flag, which had been marking the hall as the living room of Almonte for years, was taken down by Geert. He handed the flag over to Margreet after which the promise was made to hang the flag again at the new location; if possible outside, otherwise inside!
Piet and Geert have been busy preparing for the new season in the Achtse Barrier. For example, cabinets have been made in the storeroom where each team has a ball bag, and the necessary training materials can also be stored.
The hall is equipped with new baskets (whether or not electrically operated) and for both fields there is a large scoreboard and 24 second equipment available.
Soon the municipality will put the finishing touches to the hall: a new top layer and adjustment of the lines. After that we can start a new chapter.
We hope that the new season in sports hall de Achtse Barrier will start well.
