NBA Finals, the U.S. Open, and Bird Noises

Kentucky athletic equipmentAt Toadvine Enterprises we take our sports seriously. If you have been following the NBA finals it has been a treat. The Miami Heat are leading the Thunder 2-1 in the seven game series. Game three had some awesome highlights and predictable stats. It was not surprising that Wade and James combined for 54 of the 91 points the Heat posted in their 91-85 victory. Shane Battier added several three buckets for a ridiculous percentage; 4 of 6 in Game 1, 5 of 7 in Game 2, 2 for 2 in Game 3. That’s 11 of 15, 73.3 percent. With Miami leading 2-1 we want to hear from you. Can the OKC Thunder pull three wins out of the next four games? What will the result of this year’s NBA Finals be?

In golf news, we want to congratulate Webb Simpson on his U.S. Open victory yesterday in San Francisco. Webb sat in the club house at +1 after his four rounds. He had to sit with his wife and watch Graeme McDowell and Jim Furyk finish the 17th and 18th hole to see if his score would hold up or if there would be a playoff. Furyk fell apart on the last three holes and gave himself little chance to force a playoff. McDowell, however, left himself a 25 putt for a birdie that would force a playoff. It was not to be. McDowell misread the hole and the ball drifted well left of the hole. McDowell two-putted to secure solo second. Webb claimed his first major win in his second major appearance and received $1.44 million for his efforts. The last nine majors have been claimed by an unprecedented, nine first time major winners so what will happen with the remaining major tournaments this year. Will the next major see a veteran or first timer hoisting the trophy? Let us know your predictions.

There is always a heckler. This year’s U.S. Open Trophy ceremony had a man in a bizarre costume appear in front of the camera while Bob Costas was interviewing Webb Simpson. The man calls himself Jungle Bird and says he is an activist raising awareness of deforestation. He walked in front of the camera and began making bird sounds. This is not the first time he has done this. Apparently he has met the Queen of England and did something similar. He pointed out no charges were pressed that time.

We're Nearing the End of the School Year!

Spring sports season KentuckyThe start of April marks the beginning of the end of the school year. With about two months left for most schools in our area and spring break in full force, most students and faculty can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel!

The beginning of spring also means the beginning of a lot of other activities in Kentucky and Indiana like:

  • Baseball season starting up
  • The end of March Madness with The Kentucky Wildcats winning their Eighth National Title!
  • The Masters kicking off
  • Keeneland Spring Meet opening
  • The Kentucky Derby Festivities are getting underway

Because school isn’t far from closing for the summer, this is a great time to start thinking about preventative maintenance for your equipment and bleachers. It’s also a great time to re-stock on new equipment for your sports facilities.

Right now, Toadvine Enterprises has openings for summer maintenance programs for bleachers and gymnasium equipment. Call us at (502) 241-6010 or fill out our maintenance form on our website to get started.

Basketball season is right around the corner

Can you believe it’s almost time for basketball season? While most of the college programs had their midnight madness a few Fridays ago, high school teams are practicing hard and gearing up for the season.

Speaking of basketball season, how’s your gym looking? Basketball season is the time when gymnasiums—and bleachers especially—see the most traffic, and wear and tear. Fans pack the stands for both boys’ and girls’ games each week, so it’s crucial that your bleachers are in good condition.

If you think it’s time to get your bleachers inspected before the season officially begins, check out Vine & Branch, our maintenance division. Our maintenance and safety inspection program handles all of your indoor and outdoor seating and equipment inspections. Vine & Branch is also fully staffed with manufacturer-certified service technicians to ensure the safety of your seating. You can fill out the maintenance form on our website to learn more and get the process started.desales high school

Need new bleachers entirely? We can help with that too. We just completed a bleacher installation at DeSales High School in Louisville, KY. This was a very large job, with three separate banks of bleachers. Whether your project is large like this or smaller, contact us for a quote or to get the process started.

Seating and Equipment Safety Inspection After Recent Storms

Posted by Bryce Raley

May 9, 2011 2:00:00 PM

Storms have been rolling through the Kentucky and Southern Toadvine outdoor seatingIndiana areas lately. We’ve had tornado warnings (and some confirmed touch-downs), flash flooding, damaging winds, and severe thunderstorms. It’s been a rough ride so far, and we’re really just at the beginning of the storm season.

All of the things listed above could be bad news for outdoor sports equipment and grandstand seating. High winds could be damaging to equipment and sometimes make seating a safety threat for fans and spectators.

Along with providing and installing this type of equipment, we also service it. If you even have a question about the safety of your bleachers you should complete safety inspection for all of your outdoor equipment, please contact us for a complete safety inspection. It’s better to be safe than sorry, especially after all the storms and high winds we’ve experienced.

There are a number of ways you can get in touch with us and set up an appointment:

We look forward to making sure your seating and equipment is safe and in good working condition.
