CALGARY- The finishing touches are being done inside the bustling Scotiabank Saddledome, as the building prepares to host its first event since the June flood.
The arena suffered extensive damage, when flood waters went as high as row eight, submerging the dressing rooms and damaging hockey equipment.
The Calgary Flames still aren’t saying how much the repairs cost—only that it was a ‘big bill’ and insurance covered part of it.
While there is still some work to do, the Flames’ CEO says they’re almost ready for action.
The Eagles are scheduled to play at the ‘dome next Wednesday and Thursday, while the first pre-season hockey game is scheduled for next Saturday.
