No ice in there for years the glass and boards are in the new gambucchi, so no this is not an option.

The old engelstad arena is no longer a hockey facility. The boards, glass, scoreboards, and ice compressors were all sold off and removed from the site. There has been a lot of discussion about what UND should do with the old engelstad arena. Someone else may know as I do not. You could find out at siouxsports.

You could come up with some economic development arguments, where the Cities (that gain a lot in sales tax from shoppers from the small towns) should be helping out nearby communities (yes, May-Port is nearby to both Grand Forks and Fargo), but that is beyond what people want to see in a hockey forum.

The bottom line is, if the facilities are good enough for play through out the season, they should be good enough for the state tournament; it should not need to be anything special. I’ve not seen any issues that can’t be fixed. If some temporary accommodations make it better, great, whatever it takes. It may not be up to your standard, but that is the reality of the league, let them get on with it.




does the regular season have the entire jr gold leauge there or is it just one game at a time???
