An Icy Reception

December 20, 2007 at 2:00pm By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

Looks like Lincoln will soon be the happy recipient of two new ice rinks in a new arena to be placed somewhere near Haymarket Park. That’s good news for the many users of the Ice Box, who currently have to practically fight each other to get ice time. Details about the new arena—and the gift that made it happen—are due at a news conference at 1:15pm today.

Update: Some details have been released. It’s a two-rink, $11 - $13 million facility, thanks to a gift from John Breslow. One piece of the article raised an eyebrow: “The facility will be somewhere in the West Haymarket district.” Hmm, that could mean “organizers are in the final stages of securing a location”, or it could mean “we have a great idea but we don’t have any idea where we’ll be able to put it”. Hopefully the truth is much closer to the former than the latter.

its an ice rink.  They should have to fight to use it.  Winner stays on the ice, loser goes to the penalty box.

I like the drawings.  I think this will be a good addition to the haymarket area.
