Hey good afternoon everybody it’s Greg Douglas coming at you again from Swinomish Casino and Lodge with another weekly construction update. We’ve had a lot of things going on in here the last couple weeks. We got our final signage installed in Carver’s Cafe So if you get a chance swing in to Carver’s and check that out! Our graphics department here put a lot of work into that It’s another one of those projects where we did it all in house with our own people. Obviously we had some outside help getting the graphics, plastics, all that stuff created That came from our Senior Graphic Artist Eve It’s beautiful, she did a really nice job on that.
It’s a nice thing and we’re proud that it was done internally. Next, we’ve got a lot of the work done in the new area (the old casino floor). In addition to getting the Carver’s Cafe signage done in the last few weeks We’ve gotten our floor done in here Last time you had a chance to take a look in this area which was our old gaming floor it was cut to pieces. We’ve got all the new walker duct in place which will allow us to move slot machines around. To change the floor up and keep things nice and new and exciting for you. We’ve got the area where our new table games are going to be located at.
That’s installed and ready to go. And right now we’re looking at about 4 weeks out we’re going to get this area turned back over to us. Then we can start getting games moved back in, tables games moved back over, and get ready to go. It’s a pretty exciting piece for us. The next step for us is moving back over into the back of the building.
The area in front of where the Sports Bar is, we’ll be moving those machines around and out of that space. The contractors will be doing the fireproofing and stuff that needs to be done back there. We’ll be getting some new doors installed. We’ll be doing a face lift to the front of the Sports Bar as well. Then we’ll actually move into the Sports Bar, closing that down for about a 4 week period, and hopefully reopening that sometime in mid to late April.
And then that will be ready to again for you too. So, lots of stuff happening, be sure to come in and check it out. We look forward to seeing you.
