Chuck Nadeau was back at East Greenwich High School this week with his drone to check in on the progress of replacing the artificial turf on Carcieri Field.

The plan is for the field to be ready for play by Aug. 1.

    Wish it was real turf with weeds and mud when it rains. This was suppose to be a cheaper option. Seems like it may not be, just a guess. But we do have a designer field for the kiddos and a drone to show pics we really do not need. Technology for technology sake.

      This turf requires no irrigation or mowing and can be used much earlier and later in the season. It also provides a much “faster”surface for field hockey and soccer. Because of its drainage there are less cancellations/ postponements because of rain. In addition the town gets additional gate receipts because RIIL uses it as a preferred site for playoffs. Still more expensive but the advantages far outweigh the down side
