Belmore Residents Try To Save Arena Ice

The arena board that operates the Belmore arena says there will be curling ice in the facility for for the 2014-2015 season. But there is one group that would like to see hockey ice kept in as well.

The curling and hockey surfaces are in separate parts of the building.

The Save Our Ice group is meeting Sunday to look at ways to keep hockey ice in the Belmore arena. That meeting is at 2pm on Sunday.

Belmore’s arena board has decided to install a smaller compressor unit to keep curling ice in and any decision on hockey ice would have to be viable financially and there would have to be enough volunteers to keep it going.

The Belmore arena was built 1977.
