We believe the Southwest Iowa area is underserved by the lack of a full time Ice Rink Arena. We believe the interest is high for a local arena that will make ice skating activities more accessible for Southwest Iowa residents. It will serve the current interest as well as foster greater awareness and economic support for startup of local recreational skating, figure skating associations, and hockey leagues for all skill and age levels. Additionally, it will increase the fan/support base for our local USHL Lancer hockey team. This will create heightened recognition of our region as well as the economic benefits of successfully supported USHL team. Our goal is a high quality, functionally versatile Ice Rink Arena that is naturally tied-in with the local government, I-80 corridor, local sports associations, and local USHL Lancers hockey team.
