You can read about it here. I'm a little skeptical about this because I've seen so many times over the years when folks have announced they are going to build a rink and then have never broken ground. They look at what the actual numbers need to be and realize Fort Wayne won't pay for that. I once counted 11 or 12 times over a 25-year period when someone announced they were going to do it and it never happened.
I'm glad to see they are not closing McMillen, but I also wonder if it's the best thing to have this new company managing the rink. What's to prevent them from just shoving all the business to the new rink and then saying McMillen is unnecessary? Then what happens if the new rink fails financially, as is usually the case with ice rinks, including several that have been managed by this company? I just worry we may end up without any ice if everyone isn't very careful.
