The Ponies Touchdown Club, in partnership with the School District #834 and the City of Oak Park Heights, recently began construction on an equipment storage garage for the benefit of the Stillwater Ponies football program. The PTC is covering all of the costs associated with this project and once it’s completed will donate it to the school district. The projected is expected to be completed prior to the state of the 2013 season, which begins with two-a-days starting on Monday, Aug. 12.

The garage, which is centrally located near the main practice fields, allows for equipment and supplies to be stored more conveniently and more quickly distributed. The team currently stores all of its equipment in a cramped storage area inside the school.

In addition to the PTC, several individuals and businesses have volunteered their time and resources to launch this project, including Brian Larson of Larson Architects, Scott Wille of STW Construction, Brian Albertson of Albertson Construction, Mark Williams of Collins Electric and Todd Fultz of Hail Pros.
