In the fall and winter, the ice can be rented out for private parties/functions, and during the spring and summer the concrete pad can be rented out for dances, trade shows and summer sports. The meeting rooms are ideal for committee meetings, small workshops and small social gatherings. The gymnasium is popular for birthday parties and organized sports.

All ice time rentals are based on a 50 minute hour with the additional 10 minutes of the hour set aside for the resurfacing of the ice. All resurfacing is at the discretion of Management, not the User Group.
