Krause-Anderson Construction Company has provided a warming house. Youth hockey players in the Pee Wee, Squirt, Mite and Mighty Mite Leagues will begin competing on the rink, which was an indoor facility until a tornado took the Community Center June 17. The plan is to build another indoor facility in the future. A wind barrier has been erected on the north side of the rink and lights have been installed. The first outdoor game this season is scheduled for 4 p.m. Saturday with the local Pee Wee team playing Moorhead. Behl expects around 50 youth hockey players to use the outdoor sheet.
