There are 1 comment on the story from Aug 21, 2008, titled Sticky situation in BH-BL gyms. In it, reports that:

Volleyball practices for Burnt Hills-Ballston Lake School District teams are being taken on the road after a coats of gym floor finish applied at the middle and high schools have refused to dry after more than a week.

The custodial staff applied a coat of Comply Gym Floor Finish, made by Essential Industries, on Monday, Aug. 11, as part of routine summer maintenance. “It looked glossy at first and fine, but after two days, it was obvious something was wrong,” said Custodial Supervisor Dave Martin.

The finish usually cures in four or five days.

      “Gym finish usually cures from the bottom up,” said Martin, “but this stuff is cracking on top while the part next to the wood is still gooey and even moving or pooling in spots. I've been refinishing gym floors for 29 years, and I've never seen anything like this.”

that's too bad. i hope it gets resolved soon. they have a lot of work ahead of them though. they'll most likely have to peel everything off and start over.
