Action Log

  1. 10/12/2008 - Initial sample candidates found.
  2. 10/21/2008 - Contacted some additional companies and they all had similar responses. All said it was either a short astroturf or a Commercial plush carpet, which is "solid, tight, short, cut, not looped pile carpet. None of them had supplies of this carpet but suggested Home Depot and Lowe's. One company also gave optimistism about Myers near Atlantic Station (NorthSide). We should probably arrange some time to actually go to these stores and look at their carpet selections, I'm at least two of them will have what we need.
  3. 10/23/2008 - Visited Home Depot and obtained a sample. This is where they got 2007 fields from.
    Note - They only have 2 grades that are useful to us. We were directed to Carpet Warehouse and Dalton, GA.
