BDAC extends hours to students and public

Posted Thursday, February 22, 2007 - 12:00am

The Bunnell-Dmitrich Athletic Center has extended its Saturday hours, announced Darren Fairbanks of ASCEU Leadership. "The BDAC is open two more hours on Saturdays," he said. "We asked Dave Paur [athletic director and BDAC manager] if it would be possible for the BDAC to be open later on Saturdays for students and he agreed to keep it open until 3 p.m." Prior to the request, the BDAC hours were Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The BDAC's posted hours are Monday-Friday from 5 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 5 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Paur is working with the county to open the BDAC seven days a week and longer hours each day. "We have proposed to keep the facility open from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Mondays through Fridays; 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturdays, and noon to 8 p.m. on Sundays."

A special membership price will help pay for the extended hours with low income and senior citizen's memberships paid by the county, he said.

Paur is working with the Carbon County Commissioners who hope such an arrangement can benefit all the citizens of the county.
