GARDEN CITY, KAN, (WesternKansasNews.Com) -The Garden City Community College Board of Trustees approved a video board for the Broncbuster Stadium athletic complex during the regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday, March 8, 2022.
The Board heard a recommendation on installing a video board at Broncbuster Stadium. The large-screen video display would improve the sound system for house sound, field mics, and overall game day sound as the sound will be redirected from being in the stands to being included as part of the video board. Additionally, the video board would enhance recruitment efforts, provide incentives and allow for new avenues for revenue generation through advertising, and provide an opportunity to attract sporting events and competitions to the facility.
Two size options for the video board, a 20’X36′ and a 24’X43′, were presented. Both sizes have the same quality regarding pixels and picture quality and the same embedded sound system. The Board voted to approve the administrative recommendation of the 24’X43′ video board with a sound system for $548,340. Funding for this project is through the new 2022 COP financing plan.
The 24X43′ will be the largest video board in the Jayhawk Conference.
