Building and Facilities - Update

This summer we have been very busy at the rink working to get things up ready for the next season.

  1. Lighting has been changed to LED lighting to save money and conserve energy.  This project will pay for itself in 2.5 years freeing up additional dollars for SBLA.
  2. The HVAC system that caught on fire last winter will be replaced in August before the start of the season.  With little use in the summer we did not rush to get this complete.
  3. The Dehumidification system is in process.  All equipment is onsite and we are just waiting for the installation team to arrive.
  4. While we did not reseal the parking lot this summer, we did restripe the parking lot.  Everyone needs to be aware of the areas that are marked for ‘No Parking’ and we ask that you do not park in the drive along the main entrance to the rink.
  5. A team of volunteers spend the better part of 8 hours cleaning and scrubbing the plexiglass at the rink removing puck marks and other markings and it has made a huge difference.  The gouges and the scratches are still visible but it is a HUGE improvement.
  6. We are currently cleaning up the tempered glass along the bleachers and hope to have the complete after the final work night on August 24th.
  7. Cleaning up the Rink:
    1. The bleachers have been scrubbed and cleaned.
    2. The Kitchen has been cleaned and the flooring has been repainted.
    3. The Home and Visitor bench areas have been scrubbed clean, garbage has been picked up and the walls have been repainted.  (Primarily the Blue)
    4. The Press Box has been re-configured so that we actually have room for two people in there without being cramped.  The Audio equipment has been relocated and the room as been cleaned and repainted.
  8. Volunteers spent 4 hours walking the grounds and inside the building picking up trash and cleaning garbage cans.
  9. We had a contractor volunteer his time and equipment to cut back the overgrowth around the edge of the property.

Overall, we have had a very busy summer getting ready for the start of the season.  We rely on volunteers to help keep the rink clean so please do not walk past trash ‘pick it up,’ make sure the locker rooms are clean before you leave each night, and PLEASE USE THE TRASH CANS.

We will assigning each team cleaning responsibilities during the season once tryouts are complete.  This may be done while your child is on the ice at practice.  Each person is responsible for 10 general work hours and cleaning counts toward those hours.

This summer we have been very busy at the rink working to get things up ready for the next season.

Thank you,
