LEWISTON, Maine -- New State of Maine Fire Code restrictions implemented this year have translated into revised seating policies for Bates' home varsity basketball games at Alumni Gymnasium.
New restrictions at Alumni include no balcony seating and no standing. A second entry to Alumni will be open at the gym's Central Avenue doors.
Fans are encouraged to arrive early to get a seat to the game. Those entering the gym will now be counted, and that will require each person to be marked upon entry.
