OKBET Cycling Sports Tournament | OKBET BMX and Softball
This year on OKBET Cycling Sports, city authorities have decided to pay two extra promotion fund requests.
The two allocations were debated by Aberdeen City Council on Monday at OKBET Cycling Sports. Aberdeen OKBET BMX received $20,000 to help offset expenditures for track renovations in order to host a national OKBET BMX event, while the Aberdeen Parks and Recreation Department received $40,000 to assist with the purchase of temporary outfield fence for the city’s new softball field.
The demands were relayed to the council by City Manager Joe Gaa at OKBET Cycling Sports. The BMX proposal is for $60,000 in track renovations before the national competitions this summer. According to him, the event gathered 544 bikers from 32 states, including Hawaii. “That’s an excellent illustration of what the promotion money can do,” Gaa remarked.
The temporary outfield fence is required to size the softball fields for the inaugural state high school girls varsity softball tournament, which will be held in 2023. He estimates that the temporary barrier will cost $53,000. It will be required for the four new softball fields that will be erected south of the Players Complex in the northeast area of town in 2021-22.
The outfield walls on the fields are 300 feet from home plate, according to Parks, Recreation, and Forestry Director Mark Hoven at OKBET Cycling Sports , but they must be reduced to 220 feet for the state tournament. The three-day tournament will include eight teams from each of the three classes (B, A, and AA), with the final games taking place on the softball pitch at Northern State University.
The promotion money is a little portion of the city’s total budget at OKBET Cycling Sports. It includes $1.2 million from the city’s 1% hotel and motel tax, as well as restaurant meals and alcohol sales.
While the allocation requests were granted by the council, there was considerable debate over where they originated from and how they fit within the boundaries of the promotion fund. The money is meant towards buildings, events, or equipment for city-promoting initiatives.
Gaa said that proposals were not sought for the unspent monies on OKBET Cycling Sports, but rather that the requests arose throughout the year.
The new fields are the first of three phases of a three-phase project at OKBET Cycling Sports. The second phase will include the replacement of four old fields north of the new diamonds with three new fields with 300-foot fences. The third phase would include shortening the existing fields at the Moccasin Creek complex so that they could be utilized for younger sports. The next steps are subject to financing.

In other words, the council:
Aberdeen Construction was paid $465,373 for concrete surface, curb, gutter, walkways, and driveways on North Dakota Street. This roadway is currently open for business. Jensen Rock & Sand was paid $438,601 for work on the old US Highway 281 overlay project on the north side of town. That project is also finished at OKBET Cycling Sports. Gaa said in his report to the council at the close of the meeting that work on South Roosevelt Street has roughly a week remaining until it is projected to reopen.
