Show up Sunday mornings at 9:30. Drop in fee $5. It's rumored, someone always brings doughnuts. Contact manager Liz to get on the club's email list.

National Hockey League Players Association Awards HHA Gear Grant

Congratulations to our Hockey for the Fun of It program, which was recognized by the NHLPA as an asset to our community by offering a low cost option for youth to enter the sport of hockey. The program will be receiving 20 sets of new gear to rent at a nominal fee, thus eliminating the obstacle of gear cost for those who would otherwise be unable to participate.

CASH Raffle Fundraiser

This is the biggest and most important fundraising event of the year. Youth hockey teams, Men's League and the Divas are all doing a great job of selling tickets. If you still haven't picked up yours, please contact your team manager. You won't want to miss out on the prizes. If you aren't selling, and still love the rink - then buy a few! They are available at the rink office.

Volunteer in 2015! The rink needs your talents.

Thank you to all your support this year. With your help, the Southern Kenai Peninsula has a recreational center for healthy winter activities. Until it snows, the rink is the cooooooolest place to be.
