USU marching band practice area issues resolved

LOGAN– After three ASUSU

 Executive Council meetings, a space conflict between USU’s

 football team and marching band has been resolved.

The USU

 marching band will keep their practice space in the Romney Stadium parking lot, thanks to a unanimous vote by the council.

At a meeting on Sept. 4, ASUSU

 President ChristianThrapp

 said football players were parking in the band’s practice space due to heavy construction in the area.

At the same meeting, Athletics Vice President Karson

 Kalian

 said intramurals

 were also part of the space problem.

As of the start of the school year, the band was temporarily moved to the fields outside Mountain View Tower, and the council was debating whether to make the move permanent.

Before the vote Tuesday, USU

 parking representative James Nye said the band has been using the lot near the stadium for years, but this year there hasn’t been enough space for them.

He said 40 parking stalls on the north edge of the stadium were taken out by construction, making the walk to the Stan Laub

 Training Center or to the Student Health and Wellness Center longer.

Band representative Sarromg McIff said the move might have be good for the band because it would be more accessible.
