C.A. Nesbitt Arena reopens to the public

As of 8 a.m. this morning, the C.A. Nesbitt Arena officially reopened its doors after closing down for repairs for more than a week.

On Wednesday, Jan. 24, arena staff noticed a break in the rink’s brine line and immediately called CIMCO Refrigeration to make these repairs.

During Monday’s city council meeting, city officials unanimously threw their support behind a resolution to approve sole sourcing with CIMCO to fix the facility at a cost not to exceed $22,000 plus applicable taxes.

Because of this closure, a number of hockey related events had to be moved to the smaller Gordon Beard Arena in the interim, including the second-annual Thompson Tigers All-Girls Weekend tournament and a midget AAA series between the Norman Northstars and Winnipeg Wild.

Now that these repairs have been completed, the rink should be open just in time for Winterfest 2018 this weekend, which is set to host a number of events inside this facility, including a free family skate and a series of match-ups between the Northstars and Eastman Selects.

For more information on the state of the C.A. Nesbitt Arena, please contact Thompson Regional Community Centre staff at 204-677-7952.
