It had better be cool, or it will be a hockey pond.

lets see it would cost a fortune if the government got involved but private investors can make money.possibly fundraising donations and volunteers
could get the job done.after the building is completed the users would be paying for day to day operating costs through hourly users fees.

OK! For the sake of information, if you were to start this project on 03/01/13 and everything fell into place timely when would you estimate the grand opening date to be?

I really have no idea on the time frame with the way the economy is.
So far it looks like I have 1 supporter and 1 skeptic/detractor.
I think that it would be well received and a positive for the area.
There is no competition to speak of and it would draw users from all around.
Depending on the scope of the project there is the potential for attracting professional teams or other types of money making entertainment such as concerts and shows.
Anyone want to donate some land or expertise in construction or architecture?

I am neither a supporter nor a detractor. Your points are well-stated. I am just seeking info on how long you estimate this project would take. As you say, the economy sets the schedule.

if funding was to magically appear the construction phase would probably be a yr. or less

We could use one here in ohio county. At then there would be a reason for all the missing teeth in people's mouths.

Sorry to disappoint. The proposed location is going to be for a wax museeum. No longer the Catipal Theater

It would be a cool thing to have, the only problem is it wouldn't make any money... How many people do you think would use it a day... I'm going to be generous and say 50 customers a day at say $5 to $10 dollars a head, that's $250 to $500 a day (i don't know what someone.would pay to skate for a few hours)... I don't know how much it would cost to keep the rink frozen a day, but it wouldn't be cheap, and then you have to pay employees, and the loan for the building, and insurance... there isn't any money to be made...

You would need to employ a zamboni operator / janitor and maybe someone to run concessions and an equipment-skate shop during peak times.Ice rentals vary between $150 to $225 for 50 minutes that allows 10 mins.to clean the ice every hr.
There are many non govt. skating arenas that are run at a profit in many states. Canada has an Arena in almost every town.

I think it would be nice to have but the skating culture in Canada and even the northern United States is so different. There are many professional and amateur hockey leagues up there. even high schools have teams. we have none of that. It would be a niche thing here. Something you do once or twice a year. If we had one I would take the kids skating but not more than once or twice.

Yeah lets build another useless business in Greeneville and then let it go to waste. See the skate park at Hardins for example. There was supposed to be all these rules and they were gonna hold competitions there. In the first month alone these punks spray painted on the ramps and were breaking all of the rules set forth. If I remember correctly they locked the gate on it for a month or so. Now you drive by and its a wasted space.

A hockey rink? Can we start with a mall or a cool night club? Maybe a TJ Max? I know... What about a new grocery store... Oh, wait... nm... My wish has come true...

I would really like a TJMaxx. There's ice in Knoxville.

We don't fit the demographics for a TJMaxx. That's why we're stuff with Burke's Outlet.

I've lowered my expectations, maybe we can afford some sticks and balls for field hockey or street hockey.
