LYHA/TRAC Announcement


LYHA Families,

I have a very exciting announcement, and one that has been long overdue!

As of today, we would like to formally announce that we are about to be an ice arena with two full sheets of ice once again!

Our plans will start by removing the turf and installing an ice mat system on rink #1. Once this is up and running in June, we’re going to take down the ice on our current rink for some enhancements. And shortly after that, both rinks will be operational late summer for everyone to use.

This has been a huge undertaking over the past two years and I’d like to thank everyone who has been involved in many ways.

Two local companies specifically to thank are Greg Gebhart with Ice Builders and Adam Purtell with Quality Mechanical Service. Both of these organizations helped with the new mat system, boards, a new chiller and dehumidifier system as well as keeping the current rink up and running the last couple years.

We are also in desperate need of help from all our families both current and previous to help make this project successful. We will be announcing some fundraisers and capital campaign (Meat Raffle, golf tournament, sponsorships and more) that we hope that all of you will be excited for and want to participate in. This is also a time for us to call to arms anyone who can help and volunteer with these programs in making them more successful than they have ever been before. Specifically, we are looking for volunteers that can help with getting both big and small sponsorships or advertising at the rink. Maybe you know someone who would want the naming rights on one of the rinks or one of the Olympia's? We will be offering dasher boards and banners throughout the facility for companies to advertise or even a family that wants to show their support. If you would like to be involved in this exciting time and part of the various fundraising efforts and event planning, please email us as many hands make light work.

I’m beyond excited for all of our LYHA families share in this huge announcement and. to be a part of this great facility this coming season!

See you at both rinks soon!

Scott Hinman
