Have you ever wondered how many Porta Potties they have at Spokane Hoopfest? Or how much court tape they use?
“Obviously we bring in a lot of resources for Hoopfest,” says Rob Davis, Hoopfest's site manager.
He gave KHQ a rundown of some of these numbers.
“We bring in about 300 portable toilets for the weekend. About 5,000 pieces of fencing that go around the perimeter. About eight miles of court tape.”
With 462 courts, there were 800 game balls. For the heat, they had 500 cases of water on hand, but that doesn't include retailers.
“I know there's thousands and thousands and thousands of bottles of water consumed this weekend,” Davis says.
They ordered 1,000 paper trashcans and 400 recycling bins. And last but definitely not least, 3,000 volunteers helped out for the weekend.
“And that's the only reason Hoopfest is successful is the volunteer base,” he says. “Because without them that couldn't happen.”
