Last of a series New major city ice arena would be well utilized By RTCHAIin BUHKK Herald Staff Writer Who wpuUI ad- miniMcr ti n e w arena is a ma- jor q u o s I i on which may he determined by the location of the structure. A logical choice I for tlie adinini- SslratLve task is I the community services department ot the city. That department is now re- sponsible f o r scheduling times at the three community ice surfaces. It's a dfficult job. Time must be found Cor games ami practices for tbe Junior A, juvenile, minor, in- dustrial an tl rec rcat ion hoc- key leagues, public and sep- arate school hockey and phy- sical education, University of Lclhbridiie physical educa- tion, figure skating, girl's hockey, broomball, child and adult'skating inslruction and public skating. Spokesmen for the depart- ment say they can fit all the groups in, with some jug- gling. The groups, particular- ly for minor hockey and fi- gure skating, say they do not have enough ice time, how- ever. Out-of-town groups were out of luck during the past the facilities were booked full for local use. Community services direc- tor Bob Barllctt said his de- partment is working in con- junction with the arena con- sultants on the feasibility of a new facility. He will lie mak- ing a submission to city coun- with some recommenda- tions concerning management of an arena and the "feasibil- ity of operating iL without los- ing our shirt." That means finding a use for the arena during the sum- mer months, or whenever it is not used for skaling. Medicine Hat, two-thirds the size of Lethbridge, has had a new scat arena in oper- ation since October, 1970. In the first full year, there was an operating deficit of about the revenue was offset by a oper- ating cost. Hay Lambert, manager of the Medicine Hat arena, says he expects to "just about break even this year." During the hockey season, the revenue is set, Mr. Lam- bert said. The Medicine Uat Tigers of the Western Canada Hockey League, drew fans for 37 league nnd play- off games. In the summer, there is a six week figure skating school and a two week hoc- key school. Non-ice events in- clude the Shrine Circus, bln- gos, a horse show, western stage shows and wrestling, among others. "We take whatever bookings come Mr. Lambert said. A lot of the events can be fi- gured on an annual basis, ha added. Tlie Exhibition Pavil 1 o n here now accommo dates many of these events and the Exhibition board plans to dou- ble the size of the building to handle more. structure is now used 270 days a year, which Ls almost capacity, Andy Andrews, Lethbridge and District Exhibition man- ager said. "And we turn down quite a few." The expansion of the pa- vilion will not In elude seats, Mr. Andrews said. It will in- clude pipes under the con- crete, as part of an ice-mak- ing process, and possibly an ice-making plant. "The new part of the build- ing will have the space for seats (to add to the ex- isting but someone will have to come up with the money." Money. That Is what city council will be thinking about when the question of a arena comes up. What will it cost? The Medicine Hat are- na was built for million. At a preliminary meeting two months ago, the arena consul- tants suggested a million figure for an arena here. The cost will be determined by the quality of building de- sired. It could be considerably less. If the downtown sile Is cho- sen, the taxpayers would foot the bill. It the arena is lo- cated cither near the IjMh- bridge Community College or at the Exhibition there is a chance of finan- cial assistance from one of the two senior levels of gov- ernment. Some of the local taxpayers aren't opposed to paying a little extra in taxes to have an arena: "Taxes will go up anyway, so it might as well be for a good purpose" an- onymous. T. D. Alien of 521 121h St. C N. said lie would be clad to give a little extra tax money for the arena. "We need an arena for 5.000 people, but it shouldn't be a William Chand- ler of 2208 Mayor Magrotli Drive said. Martha Gallinger of C21 10th St. S. says she will support construction o! an arena here "if they don't overlook things like figure skating." Wilfred Mass, 820 18th St. S. is in favor of an arena and says "if going to build anything of a major n-iture, it s II o u 1 d be big enough to make it pay off." "An arena should be locat- ed where the kids can get at it for free says John Reedyk of E02 8th St. N. Sixteen people were asked If we need a major arena; only one gave a negative re- sponse. "The expense doesn't wiinanl it. There are other areas in the city we should concentrate says lyn Larson, 523 19th'St. S. What can an arena be used for? Hockey, figure skating, the obvious uses. (It has been suggested there would have been an extiibition game be- tween the Phoenix Roadrun- ners and the Toronto Leafs here tlu's year bad there been an Ice, name bands, indoor track, agriculture and horticulture exhibitions, horse shows, circuses, Billy Gra- ham type shov.s, car and boat slmus, indoor rodeos, basketball, national curling events, commercial promo- tions, meetings and conven- tions are some others. Do we need on arena? The answer has to be "yes." The groups which most feel tha effects of a lack of ice facil- ities unanimously agree. wishing lo have a high calibre of hockey to witness- say yes.
