For Sale

Summer Creek HS is looking to sell our 80' x 55' floor. It is printed on both sides and has been used for 2 seasons. There are a few small holes, but nothing major. All seams are in good condition. One side has a fire design (yellow center, fades through orange & red to black at the edges), and the other has more of an abstract "water" side (to me, it looks somewhat like clouds reflecting on water). Asking price is $800 or best offer. Interested buyers should contact Tyler Scarberry at tscarbe@humbleisd.net. Photos available upon request.
