I always thought Henry County's Roy L. Winchester Gymnasium had a cool feel to it.

Henry County and Mason County Fieldhouse are the 2 best I've been in.

He's not kidding. Even delivered a bag to my wife a few years ago at the regional tourney.  I don't care what Parker says about him; mcpapa is a good guy. 

What a huge pile of poopy.

And as the ultimate demonstration of my generosity, that even includes Can’tcoach, Mustang, Runcible Owl and the Parker brat.  

Any other BGPers probably rate a pop as well.  

If Parker can get @LCDAWGS19 to come, I'd make that flight to Mason County. Maybe make a weekend of it - swing by Cov Cath to see "The Crazies" or catch a game at the historic David M. Evans Fieldhouse at Holmes.

The Old Man is unwrapping a fresh bar of Lifebuoy soap for this comment.

I think I could get him.

Augusta and Mason County are my two favorites.  When did you go to Augusta?

Marshall County, Henry County, and Valley are 3 that I want to take in.  And Breathitt County too.  Those pictures look great.

Augusta would have been in high school as well, so around the same time. 2002-2004.

Holmes has a big Indiana high school size feel to it. When I first saw it, I couldn't believe how high the rafters were. This photo is from the 1972 35th District tournament - Holy Cross vs Cov Cath. There's an owl somewhere in that crowd and Evans Fieldhouse is a great place to watch a game.

After being locked out for a year, they will all look good when they reopen.

I remember a thread Goldie started about GRC's new gym. Looked really nice from what I recall.

From her thread - It is impressive and she's rightly proud of it.

Ahhhh, that's what it was. Breathitt County's Fairce O. Woods Coliseum. Built in 1963 and renovated in the last year after a fire in May 2020. Looks pretty awesome.

Interesting roof construction. What would you call that in the construction business?

Are the beams wood? Or just covered with wood?

It could be that simple. LOL.

I figured CWB would know if there is a more technical name for the type of construction. Being a retired firefighter I spent a lot of time learning about building construction and how different types of structures react to fire load. I don't recall studying that type of structure.

Marshall County ..... 6,000

Henry County ..... 5,400

Mason County ..... 5,400

Pulaski County .... 5,000

Hopkinsville ..... 4,800

George Rogers Clark ..... 4,500

Breathitt County ..... 4,000

Clay County ..... 3,800

Bourbon County ..... 3,800

Bowling Green ..... 3,500

Holmes ..... 3,000
