With work nearing completion, the Vandals are preparing to begin practices inside the friendly confines of the University of Idaho Kibbie Dome on the newly installed RealGrass Pro infill artificial turf field.

Installers at the University of Idaho are nearing completion of the installation new RealGrass Pro infill artificial turf field being installed in the Dome. This weekend the crew began painting the lines on the field, and the goal was to have the installation completed in time for Tuesday's practice.

We will wait for word on whether the team is moving inside to start breaking in the new surface, but in the meantime we have an updated set of photos taken this weekend showing the field nearing its final form.
