Help with McKeon Pavilion - Saint Marys Basketball

->> Hi, I was just wondering if anyone can help with a few questions about McKeon Pavilion near Oakland CA.

Does it have a catwalk or place to hang lights?

Do you have any photos of the inside of the arena that I can take a look at. Overall shots with the ceiling in the photos.

Thanks everyone!

->> Dustin,
I talked to Mark in the facilities operations and he sent me several images. There is not a catwalk and the strobes will need to be mounted with c-clamps on the wood beams using an extension ladder to get up there. This would not be the first time this has been done. We will be using Elinchrom 650’s. All the heads will be blacked wrapped to keep the lights off the fans heads and more focused onto the court. There maybe close to 200’ of extension so recycle will be a little slow. I will let you know if anything changes.

->> St Mary's is awesome this year. Now 13-1, losing only to Texas, they bitch-slapped Fresno last night. We couldn't get a rebound at all. By the end of the game, the Bulldogs had that deer-in-the-headlights look. Not fun.

McKeon should be jammed packed this year.

They should be ranked... they'll sweep the WCC in a yawn this year. Go Gaels!
