NPIce’s goal is to launch an Outdoor Ice Skating and Hockey Rink in North Platte, December 2022 through February 2023 to introduce the community to ice hockey, figure skating, and a “whole lotta fun! ” A modified, one-third, regulation-size hockey rink (90 feet x 70 feet with full hockey boards and plexi-glass or netting) is planned for the season.
Awards from the Sports Incentive and Promotional funding sources are a major step in the fundraising process. To open a refrigerated ice skating rink in West-central Nebraska the community will need to raise almost $250, 000.
