A full-sized (2017?) and covered (tba) ice rink
to benefit the entire region!
TRUCKEE TAHOE ICE RINK PROJECT
Type your paragraph here.
We are local skaters, hockey players, parents, kids, sports enthusiasts, and lovers of all things Truckee and Tahoe. Some really good folks have worked hard trying to get a larger, covered rink built in Truckee for the better part of 15 years. This would benefit the entire North Tahoe/Truckee/Reno region. It's quickly becoming a reality now. We will need to do some serious fund-raising, and we'll need YOUR help, but we're well on our way to building a rink. Truckee and North Tahoe need one!
OCTOBER 19, 2015 We are excited to announce that the Truckee Donner Recreation and Parks District is considering letting us use the current location of the existing ice rink for the full-size rink.
The TDRPD is also considering managing and operating the seasonal ice rink from November to April. The site is intended to be a multi-use facility year-round.
We are commencing the preliminary steps with an architect and engineer by plotting the site and then meeting with the Truckee Building Dept. There is concern regarding the flight path of the Truckee Airport, we will need to contact the airport for that information. We will also begin the first steps of fundraising.
TTIRP STICKERS! Keep your eyes open at coffee shops, Dairy Queen, TDRPD, and participating restaurants for our new stickers and please logo-up your cars and helmets!
COMMUNITY WORKSHOP/PARTY! We will also be having a full TTIRP Community Visioning Workshop (community feedback on uses and features we all want for the rink + pizza and bevies) asap - stay tuned for that date soon.
AND TELL A FRIEND! Please tell anyone to email us if they want to receive future emails like this, or help the Project in any way.
We are a group of community members dedicated to getting a rink built in Truckee. We know our North Tahoe/Reno area has long needed a full size sheet of ice, covered, and open for 6 months out of the year! We are working with The Truckee Donner Recreation and Parks District, and with some potential donors. But we need YOUR involvement to get it done. Please contact us and tell your friends.
Truckee needs a full-sized rink, one that is open for figure skating, public skating, hockey, speed skating, curling, broom ball, and other ice activities 6 months a year (Nov-April). From April til November the facility will be multi-use. The roof will be permanent, the sides open.
This is going to be a world-class facility because Truckee deserves it!
We'll build in the existing location, near the other wonderful sports amenities Truckee offers along Brockway Road.
The rink would be home to anyone who loves ice sports, from all over the Truckee/Tahoe/Reno region. Our hope is that TDRPD will manage the rink, bringing and expanding upon their wonderfully successful programming.
The entire region will benefit from this rink! First of all, its crazy we don't already have one. We are a winter playground, a recreational community, and a sports-haven. Skiing is a fabulous winter sport for many, but for some, skating is more affordable long-term.
Also, skating is a great way to get in shape, or stay in shape! Kids can walk or ride their bike or bus to the rink with just a pair of skates in their pack, and enjoy time with friends while exercising.
Our region has an Olympic tradition dating back to the 1960 Winter Olympics in Squaw Valley. While, we may not get that back real soon, it'd be nice to be able to support the ice sports!
