Joboo's Gym Tour: Marionville

After years of thinking about it, my gym tour has finally become a reality.  And getting the honor of being the first gym to be graded is Marionville.  Except that anyone who has ever had to go first in a contest where you are being judged knows going first isn't a great thing.  The judges (me) have to leave room for those who are coming along after to be better.  If you haven't been through it, you can't understand.  But trust me, it works that way.  So apologies to Marionville for having to be first out of the gate, but all in all they stacked up pretty well and had some nice touches that I will always remember.

A quick explanation of the grading scale.  Each of the first 12 categories are scored 1 to 5 for a possible total of 60.  The wild card category is the extra credit of the gym tour.  Any points gained there are extra.  And what do the 1 through 5 ratings mean?  Glad you asked.

5 - As near to perfect as possible.  It would take a team of MIT scientists to come up with anything better.
4 - Not a 5, but great.  They will standout above the majority of others that I grade.
3 - Good.  What you have a right to expect.  Nothing may standout, but nothing is bad either.  A solid score.
2 - Houston, we have a problem.  It's not terrible, but overall some things could be better.
1 - FEMA is on the way.

So a 3 isn't a bad score, and 1s and 5s should be hard to get.  Got it?  Good.  On to Marionville.

Access: No problems here.  The parking lot is right in front of the school, has multiple entrances & exits, is in good shape, seems to be big enough to hold all but the biggest crowds, and is a short, level walk to the front door.  Once inside, the gym is close to the front and you can easily hit the seats on either side.  No real standout features like a second entrance or being really close to the entrance that would earn a 4, but it checks all the good boxes & then some.  3.5
Cost: $3 for an adult is pretty much the industry standard.  3
Gate personnel: No complaints here either.  The lady taking money wasn't friendly but she was far from rude.  But after teaching all day would you want to still be at school at 5:30 taking money from strangers?  I think not.  Honestly I wanted to give her a hug to cheer her up.  I'm married to a teacher.  I understand.  3 and a hug and a 'Thank you' for the lady at the gate.
Appearance: With a beautiful sunset right behind it framing the school, Marionville looked great right out of the gate.  Once inside, the entrance was clean, bright, and the gyms blue, grey, and white color scheme works great.

Just look at that MHS.  That looks good.  The Mid-Lakes Conference logo on either side of the floor was a nice touch.  But using the M from the logo as the lone decoration in the middle of the floor was a bit plain.  And it probably says more about me than anything, but having 4 or 5 different fonts in use took away from the overall look a bit.  Still a very solid look and they get a half point for the sunset framing the school alone. 4 
Seating: I like seeing chairback seating, but I'm always skeptical of plastic seats.  But Marionville's are comfortable and not small at all.  There's plenty of them too.  They have designated standing areas for home and visiting student sections.  And in the event of a BIG crowd, they have additional bleachers above the chairbacks that can be extended for use.  The only drawback there is a low sightline over the lower section.  That's the only thing that keeps this from being a 4.  But still.  3.5
Scoreboard: Take a look at it.

It stands out well, has some nice Comet decorations, and looks nice and new.  It's pretty basic for this day and age, but only one advertisement is nice.  And there's another one at the other end of the court just like it.  Pretty good overall.  3.5
P.A: The system itself was good.  It had clear sound & the volume was just about right.  The announcer was good, easy to understand and he got just the right level of hype when introducing the home team.  But that was about it except for announcements between quarters.  If you're a 'less is more' type of person, he's perfect.  But I wanted more.  3
Music: A recorded national anthem sounded good.  And the song choices ranged from OK (Fallout Boy), to overdone (Guns-n-Roses), to enjoyably quirky (Waylon Jennings singing the Dukes of Hazard them song).  Pretty standard fare, so it was OK.  3
Concessions: At first glance, I wasn't sure what I had to work with.  I saw a good variety of choices, but nothing stood out.  They did have 3 windows open though, and their condiments were close to, but apart from the concession stand.  Always the right choice.  The people behind the counter were working fast, and the cooking stuff was kept off to one side out of sight.  I was feeling better then saw the list between the window.  Walking taco & frito pie are now standards and good.  But a cinnamon pretzel too?  You can get a side of cheese or chili?  BBQ beef nachos?  Nothing more than $3?  And then this.
Can't give a 5 my first night out, but that's a solid 4.
Bathrooms: Exceptionally clean, ample room, and probably enough stations to handle most crowds.  And remember that color scheme in the gym?  Well it makes itself right at home in the bathroom too.  That's worth something extra.  3.5 
Fun stuff: Standard fare as they raffled off a  and had a Comet gear booth going in the lobby area as well.  Solid.  3
Fans: The game itself was not competitive but the crowd stayed engaged throughout.  They got fired up by a nice run in the first quarter, and they were appreciative of effort in the 4th.  The student section was decent and stayed standing and active throughout the game.
No one got belligerent with the refs but that could have been due to the big margin.  And while it wasn't the loudest, most active, or creative group, they were in it throughout.  3.5

Wild card: 3 things to mention here.  First walking in to see this...
then this in the gym...
can be intimidating.  We like intimidating. +1 point.  Second, as I got close to the school, I suddenly realized that I would have to drive through the middle of a freaking graveyard as sunset was approaching.  Talk about intimidating, that's a freakout waiting to happen for a hormonally charged teenager.   Teams could also drive by the graveyard instead of through it.  By it is worth 1 point, through it is worth 2.  I'll split the difference and give +1.5.  Thirdly, as I stepped out of my truck, my nose told me a farm was nearby.  Now those of you with more sensitive smellers may not care for that, but to a small town boy like me, that's worth another half a point.  So total bonus is 3.  Let's got to the scorecard.

Access - 3.5
Cost - 3
Gate personnel - 3
Appearance - 4 
Seating - 3.5
Scoreboard - 3.5
P.A - 3
Music - 3
Concessions - 4
Bathrooms - 3.5 
Fun stuff - 3
Fans - 3.5
Wild Card - 3

Total - 43.5

43.5 out of 60 to start the tour is not bad.  And that's a good overall description of my night in Marionville, not bad.  The fans were good, the facility nice, and even though the game wasn't that competitive, I enjoyed myself.  And that more than anything is what going to a high school basketball game should be about.  Enjoying yourself.  Marionville is worth a visit if you're in the area and you're looking for a typical high school basketball environment.  Thanks Comets for letting me drop by kicking off the tour.  I'll be back if I get a chance.  Unless you start leaving an open grave at the end of the cemetery nearest the school.

Joboo's Roll of Honor - 11/30

Basketball season is off & running & so is the Roll of Honor.  The season is still young, but we've already seen some big performances including Abby Oliver of Strafford hitting 10 3-pointers and scoring 42 points against Lebanon.  The only other entry on the girls side is Licking's Karlee Holland who came 1 rebound short of a triple double, but is the leader in the clubhouse with 12 assists against Mt. View-Liberty.

For the boys, the early points leader is Jordan Hillenburg of Pleasant Hope who went for 40 against Buffalo, Dylan Caruso takes the single game rebound lead grabbing 19 against Richland, and Cabool's Jonathan Smith is the first 3-point entry for the boys getting 7 against Niangua.

And we added 2 team entries as Jacob Smith, Luke Johnson, and Tyler Essick of Billings each scored over 20 points in a win over Chadwick.  And Crane became the first team to break 100 points this year scoring 101 vs Exeter.

No milestones yet, but we have a big one that should happen soon.
