Important Air Quality Notice

There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our guests and employees. This facility has continuous fresh air ventilated into the ice rinks. We employ electronic carbon monoxide detectors that, if an issue arises, will alert our operations personnel and activate the fresh air purge system. The ice resurfacers are operated with clean burning fuel and exhausted through a catalytic converter. We regularly maintain the ice resurfacers to ensure that they are in good working order in accordance with the highest safety standards. If an issue arises or you have any questions please contact the facility General Manager, Michael Baxter at 919-229-4985. 
Your business is greatly appreciated.
