They're waiting for a ruling at Dinosaur Trail Golf and Country Club.
 
The old clubhouse and pro shop, along with the club storage, was to be demolished earlier this week, but they ran into a snag.
 
"One of the things that they didn't (do) was an asbestos test," explained club president Greg Morrow. "The biggest part of the delay was getting that completed; we're waiting for the results from that and then we can proceed, likely Monday."
 
An inspector went through the building on Monday, February 27 to see if it's safe for town crews to start knocking down walls and ceilings.
 
"The clubhouse, there was nothing there that he'd seen that would be of any concern," reported Morrow. "He thought likely where we stored the clubs, that one seemed to be a little bit more of a concern."
 
If the club storage building does contain asbestos, Morrow says there's an option other than having it taken out at great cost.
 
"There's no foundation on that building; it's just skidded in there," he noted. "It originally came, I believe, from the Drumheller Institution and it was brought in, so we could maybe talk to some people who might find a use for it."
