The Gallatin Ice Foundation is once again growing! The addition of Ressler Motors Ice Rink at the Ice Barn last season allowed our ice community to grow. And because the GIF is very intentional about our leadership being representative of the ice user groups we serve, we've added two new positions to our Board of Directors; a seat for the Bozeman Curling Club and an additional seat for the Bozeman Amateur Hockey Association. Those two seats have been filled by Jason Dahl and Rob Evans. We are thrilled to welcome their talents and expertise to our team!
Over the last couple of weeks, BAHA has been hard at work putting the boards back up in the Ice Barn. It is our intent that these boards will stay in place permanently. Fun Fact: it was 100 degrees warmer than when they were installed in December!
Other punch list items for the off-season include:
-Sealing the concrete ice rink slab; and seal and caulk the edge of the rink
-Install finishes in bathroom
-Seal all roof leaks and install metal corners
-Back fill road on North side of Ice Barn
-Tie in ice plant controls for Haynes Pavilion rink (Note: Our refurbished ice plant will be able to run both rinks this season - saving energy and dollars.)
Our construction team is working on the plan of attack for future steps. We hope to share more information with you soon.
