In March, 2015, we initiated the land clearing. Once the initial land clearing was completed, a further assessment of the overall project was done. It was determined at that point that the course needed to be redesigned to fit into the overall development of the property.
Consequently a site planner from the United States was engaged to lay out the full scope of the project as seen from the illustrative master plan. In addition to the site plan, we also had to seek independent financing to guarantee that the necessary resources would be available to complete the course without delay.
We are pleased to report that we now have all the necessary components in place and are moving ahead full steam towards completion. We expect to launch the Games within the next few months.
To date the track has been graded, 85% of the berms/hills are completed, water lines installed, electricity connected and the stage has been built. We intend to start constructing the obstacles next week. Fencing will commence after that.
This project has been a herculean endeavor. However, we have stayed the course and overcome the many challenges we have faced because we firmly believe in the impact the Games will have in transforming lives through its health promotion initiative.
We are excited about this project and the positive impact it will have on Nevis, the Federation and by extension the region. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you again for seeing the vision, believing in the FIT Games and deciding to be apart of the solution.
We will continue to keep you posted as developments transpire. However, if you’re in the Rams, Stoney Grove area Nevis, we encourage you to stop by the site and see this amazing project come to life before your eyes. We are certain that you will be pleased with the progress and feel proud to be a part of something truly amazing.
Thank you for your support and commitment to this very important initiative.
David Walwyn, FIT Games Inc. Chairman
