Ice Arena Tour Reflection

Filed under: TLEP — vkurt at 10:25 am on Monday, March 21, 2011

Part 1 – Examine the flooring and surfaces in the BGSU Ice Arena (locker rooms, hall ways, lobby, lounge, walls, ceilings, etc.) for their efficiency based on projected use of the facility and recommendations in Sawyer, Chapter 8.
Part 2 – What is your overall impression of the BGSU Ice Arena?  Does it meet the needs of BGSU and the Bowling Green community or are other updates necessary?

When touring the Ice Arena I the flooring and surfaces in the locker rooms, hall ways, lobby, lounge, walls, and ceilings all stuck out to me. From reading Chapter 8 Indoor Surfaces, it explains that indoor surfaces must be chosen carefully, considereing the nature of the facility and the activities that are planned. The three distinct areas of consideration in facilities; the service areas such as locker rooms, shower rooms and bathrooms. These areas require surfaces that can hold heavy moisture content as well as slip and fall concerns. One thing I noticed about the locker rooms at the ice arena is that the two new locker rooms were pretty  nice and had slip resistant flooring in the shower and the bathroom areas. In the middle and hallways of the lockerroom was a rubbery floor that is intended for skates to be worn on. The main arena is the second consideration in a facilitiy. For the ice arena, the ice rink is obviously the main area for activity because without the ice it would be nothing. The third consideration is administration offices and classrooms. The ice arena does not have any classrooms but they do have a few offices for the coaches, a store where you can rent skates and purchase hockey/ice skating gear, and a ballroom that can be used for meetings or receptions. When going on the tour she talked about how they are adding onto the store and main desk  which is a really good idea because the one they have now is very small and outdated.

My overall opinion of BGSU’s Ice Arena was to me it seems very old and could use alot of renovations. This was the first time I had ever been inside the ice arena and I was not really all the impressed. I’m sure it gets the use it needs out of it but just from the tour I noticed some of the bricks falling off the wall, and how they only did the new flooring in the hallway half way around the building. I just think it looks weird that the flooring just stops in the middle of the hallway. Other than that, the ice rink itself is pretty neat and big. I also think its neat that they have a half size rink on the other side. Another thing that I liked is the lighting situation to where you can have just dimmed lights on to save electricity, theres a practice setting and game setting. So overall I liked the ice arena, and just by hearing the lady talk she knows  there is alot that could be renovated but its the issue of money that only lets her do so much!

    A payday loan might seem much like the easy way to avoid it,
    but this isn’t the case not fake these loans usually are not simple to locate, so you could possibly
    hear ”no” for the first-time.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this blog.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and visual appearance.
    I must say you have done a great job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet
    explorer. Outstanding Blog!

    Right now it sounds like WordPress is the
    preferred blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what
    you’re using on your blog?

    One important thing is that if you are searching for a student loan you may find that you will want a
    cosigner. There are many scenarios where this is
    correct because you could find that you do not employ a past credit score so the bank will require
    you have someone cosign the loan for you. Interesting post.

    Yet another thing to mention is that an online
    business administration program is designed for learners to be able
    to smoothly proceed to bachelor’s degree courses.

    The 90 credit certification meets the lower bachelor education requirements and
    when you earn your own associate of arts in BA
    online, you’ll have access to the most recent technologies on this field.
    Some reasons why students want to get their associate
    degree in business is because they are interested in the field and want to find the general instruction
    necessary previous to jumping right into a bachelor diploma program.

    Thx for the tips you really provide in the blog.

    Thanks for giving your ideas. I might also like to express that video games have been ever evolving.
    Modern technology and innovative developments have made it simpler to create
    sensible and active games. All these entertainment games were not actually
    sensible when the actual concept was first of all being
    tried out. Just like other kinds of electronics, video games also have had
    to evolve by many decades. This is testimony to the fast growth of video games.
